Are the screens of my lightbank supposed to yellow?

From time to time our amazing customer service team does hear about the white fabric front screen or inner baffle yellowing.

Because of the build quality and durability of our products, the working service life of a Chimera is significantly longer than other gear, like cameras or computers! And like paper, the fabrics can shift in color with age.

Other factors, like environment and exposure can be a cause too. Storing the screens near or around smoke can advance the yellowing, as well as long term storage in high humidity or heat. Extreme exposure to UV light (such as an unfiltered HMI bulb) can advance yellowing too.

If the situation comes up that you need to replace a front screen or baffle, they can easily be ordered through our network of dealers, from our web store, or over the phone at 303.444.8000 from 9AM to 5PM Mountain Standard Time. If your bank features a sewn in screen, such as with the Pro II Super Pro (non-Plus) lightbanks, our expert team of technicians are happy to repair them! Give us a shout at 303.444.8000 or info@chimeralighting.com
