Burbank, California – Matthews Studio Equipment, known for smart solutions that ease life on set, introduce new Rock n’ RollerTM Wheel Sets. Already becoming an essential addition to Matthews’ hallmark grip and lighting stands, Rock n’ Rollers quickly simply slip on, ready to smoothly roll over rocks, power cables, cable crossovers, gravel, asphalt, uneven concrete, and soft grass.
Designed by request and input from DITs, Steadicam ops, video assistants, grips and gaffers, these useful add-ons feature 3 foam semi-pneumatic tires, 3” wide by 8” diameter that won’t go flat and enhance stability. With 360-degree rotation, they maneuver in any direction yet can maintain a straight line when rolling across the set. The dependable, face locking pedal brake features an adjustable pad to ensure strength throughout the life of the wheel. A dual-lock mechanism, it secures both wheel rotation as well as caster swivel. The smartly engineered round top plate is a real foot-saver, keeping pointy corners out of the way when engaging and disengaging the brake. Plus, Matthews’ proprietary Spring Steel Sleeve attaches the wheels to the stand for a secure fit without damaging the legs’ sidewall.
Available in 3 versions to suit every situation, the Monitor Wheel Set pairs with the Monitor Stand II and Slider Stands. The Combo Wheel Set goes with Matthews Combo Stands or any stand with a 1” square tube leg—a real benefit for moving large lights like 18Ks. The Mombo Combo set is compatible with 1-½” square tube leg stands so it’s a workhorse when breaking down huge overheads whether moving it only a couple of feet—or across the stage.
Rock n’ Rollers are available through Matthews Studio Equipment dealers. For more information visit www.msegrip.com
