Soft box rods are designed to flex and are constructed from solid steel.
Tent-style heat vents allow for additional ventilation when used with hot lights. However, the heat vents are not required to be used when using hot lights. They are only optional as the fabric shell is designed to withstand the rated maximum wattage.
The weakest area of a softbox are the corners where the rods are placed. Therefore, Westcott provides a double layer of loop tape over this section to protect against softbox rods protruding through the fabric.
We are so confident in the construction of our Pro Signature softboxes, we back them with a seven-year warranty.
The removable full stop inner baffle helps to soften and spread the light when used in conjunction with strobes and hot lights. (Note: When using fluorescents, we recommend this inner baffle is completely removed. Due to the diffuse nature of the fluorescent lamp itself, it is not needed to achieve even and diffused lighting and many times can flatten the light too much.
A wide 2" layer of loop tape allows the front diffusion panel to either be recessed in for more direction and control or placed flush with the edge of the softbox for a wider lighter spread. In addition, this wide loop tape area provides for the attachment of accessories such as egg-crate grids.
Egg-crate grids can easily be attached to the softbox using the 2" loop tape.
Each softbox includes a carry case with handle strap.
When used with a Westcott Spiderlite series head no adapter ring is needed, saving you time and money.
