Matthews Max Menace Arm

Matthews Max Menace Arm

The Matthews Max Menace Arm will support lighting fixtures up to 175 pounds and allows you to place fixtures almost anywhere on set – back lights, over set walls and in places where lifts are restricted such as rooftops and balconies.  

The Max menace arm will support a 75lb light fixture up to 17.5ft on the horizontal and over 20ft in elevation. Its horizontal plane can be adjusted from 7-10ft and at an extension of 8ft it has a capacity of 175lbs.
