Pinewood MBS Lighting delivers custom designed all weather equipment protection

MBSi, the innovations think-tank associated to Pinewood MBS Lighting, introduces a new range of bespoke weather shield accessories, custom built to provide comprehensive equipment protection against the elements, both on location or within challenging studio environments.

Exclusively available from Pinewood MBS Lighting, the initial product release has been created specifically to fit a selection of popular fixtures, including ARRI Skypanel S60 and S30, LightFlos and the PMBS designed, custom 5-way Lumipix LED battens.

Fabricated from a durable, water resistant, stitch-free poly-vinyl, the covers are product-specific and tailor fitted to allow rapid fixing with full access to control and cabling. Unlike conventional inflatable weathershields, the PMBS covers are formed around a fixed system, which incorporates rigid walls for added strength without the need for fans.

Available now, the initial range is the first release of a product line that is to be extended to be compatible with a wide selection of equipment from the extensive PMBS inventory.

Commenting on MBSi, PMBS Technical Director Steve Howard says “We are constantly developing ideas and introducing equipment designed to help crews both on location and in the studio. MBSi provides us a central point from where to share creativity, to innovate and introduce new thinking that can enhance the way we support our clients. Our new weather shields are a great example of a practical reaction to a request direct from the set for added protection in adverse conditions”.
