Matthews Hot Flags

Matthews Studio Equipment unveiled their new line of “Hot Flags” at this year’s NAB Convention in Las Vegas.  Engineered to withstand up to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, Hot Flags can be placed directly in front of high wattage lights without fear of a burnout. Comparing the Hot Flag in a side by side test with the Matthews Metal Hi Temp Flag, each was positioned just inches from an ARRI 12K HMI.  A hole was burned through the metal flag inside of ten minutes while the Hot Flag showed no signs of damage for the duration of the test.  Allowing for safer on set workflow and more versatile lighting setups, Hot Flags are an innovative alternative to your everyday flag. Rent these great new flags along with a full selection of other grip gear from Moving Picture.  Available for shipping within the United States and abroad. Bookmark it to Stumbleupon, Digg, and more!
