XSF has not only passed the base qualifications for truss strength, but has completely blown the standard out of the water! “XSF has a certified load rating on horizontal members that is 8 times more than other truss manufacturers!”
When rigging a truss always ensure that the rig point is located at a panel point or node. This includes rigging to support structures above as well as rigging lighting, sound, prop, or video applications hung from the truss. The truss has been designed so that rigging may be applied either to the top or the bottom of the truss as long as the rigging is at a panel point.
The use of C-clamps is not recommended on aluminum truss. The steel bolt in the C-clamp can easily damage the aluminum chords of the truss. Damaged truss chords cannot be easily repaired and generally renders a truss unsafe and void of the manufacturer’s warranty.
When handled properly aluminum truss is a relatively maintenance free product with a long life expectancy.
