Matthews 40”x40” Matthshield Floppies

Matthews Studio Equipment has released the 40”x40” Matthshield Floppies that are designed to protect crew, talent, and equipment.

We are seeing a lot of products coming to market that are designed to help out productions that have started back up with the prevention and spread of COVID-19. It features clear marine vinyl which functions as a UV protectant and comes with a 3/8”-pin for mounting to standard stands and grip gear. This no-sweat solution can screen cameras, crew, and talent from splattering special effects or act as a safety barrier to help protect against COVID-19 transmission.

The 40”x40” Matthshield Floppies, just like the rest of the Matthews 40”x40” are designed to portable enough to travel in a hatchback car and compact enough to work in tight locations. It can fold out to 40”x 80” yet weighs just five pounds.

The 40”x40” frames are built with 3/8” stainless steel tubing that’s securely welded for long life. Premium sturdy-gauge, optically clear marine vinyl has been specially selected to withstand the elements from hot sunlight to extreme cold without yellowing or becoming brittle over time.


The 40”x40” Matthshield Floppies retail for $279 USD.
