More On Truss
If you’ve ever enjoyed an indoor show, outdoor concert, or any other event that uses speaker columns, concert lighting, video screens, and staging equipment, it’s likely all thanks to truss. Though they may seem like simple aluminum beams, these professionally crafted and fabricated “sticks” are specially designed to carry hefty loads and large weight capacities. Good quality truss is built to last, as it has to endure frequent set-ups, tear-downs, bumping, dropping, tossing in and out of trucks, dynamic loads and more. Trusses are the framework of concerts, and they are responsible for holding an entire production together.
Choosing what is right for your project is essential. Making the right choices will ensure that your event always goes smoothly while being entertaining and safe for your audience.
Trusses can span both very short and extremely long areas, so knowing the exact dimensions of the performance space is a good starting point. Whether you need trusses, expert advice, engineering, or supply and installation, XSF can make the entire process quick, simple, and safe. Understanding your project and your project needs is our business.
With our large test fit facility, knowledge and experience, we can provide the most cost-effective and appropriate solution for your precise application.
Having a rich history in the Truss manufacturing and fabrication industry, the XSF Gallery features, pictures and video of many projects we’re proud to have been a part of. From Outdoor Ground Support, Concert and Stage, Arena and Stadium, XSF continues to lead the way in Truss Innovation.
How Trusses Work
Each truss is composed of several different elements working together. Long parallel shafts known as chords are connected at the tips via vertical members, while diagonal members provide lacing between the chords for extra stability. This completed piece is known as a truss ladder due to its distinctive shape, and several of these can be connected with horizontal members in order to create a complete truss.
Much of the time, the ends of each truss are further reinforced with bolt plate connections or spigot connections. To Learn more about Truss go to the XSF truss, What is Lighting Truss page.
