Soft Egg Crates, introduced in 1994 by Lighttools, have become an industry standard. The original Soft Egg Crates are made with a black material that has less than 2% reflection, and blocks light in the most dramatic way.
Lighttools Soft Egg Crates are available in a variety of cell sizes to fit most lightbanks, and Butterfly and Overhead frames. With over 400 Soft Egg Crate configurations, you’ll be able to find a Lighttools model that works for your lighting style. The collapsible, lightweight Soft Egg Crates are manufactured in North America by skilled technicians, and are backed with the best product warranty in the industry.
