How It Works
Fast and simple bolt together aluminum Legolike blocks. Whatever you imagine, you can build. Smartstage truss can run in ANY direction, ANY length desired, allows you to build multi truss blocks, covers, bridges, grids, artistic structures. Smartstage trusses configure fast and easily. Simply draw your dream, and assemble the sections, 4 bolts each end, in the configuration of your desire. The structure will always remain rigid, and strong.
Smartstage box truss 12″ x 12″, silver aluminum, bolt connection is designed and engineered with life dependable welds, to perform to the highest standards. TUV & SGS certified worldwide, load tested and x-rayed for quality assurance. Smartstage 12 inch box truss / lighting truss comes in multiple sizes for lighting show performances, and multiple applications. Smartstage lighting truss is easy to install with integral design, simple bolt style connection, comes in multiple lengths from 1′ to 10′, with numerous accessories, wedges, hinges, and corner blocks. Smart trusses are available in many lengths and finishes, curved and angled, with a wide range of connection hardware available. Smart trusses can be configured to fulfill any creative structural concept you design for your event venue or tour.
Engineering & Testing
Smartstage 12 inch box truss has been tested and tested again to span every direction, and in many spans, hanging sound and lights, sets, banners, and LED screens. We x-ray our welds, and alloy test regulary. Our single piece end plate doubled the loading capacity, and streamlined the look and welds.
- Span indicates distance between truss supports.
- Maximum uniformly distributed load that may be supported by a single horizontal 2” pipe is 270 plf.
- Uniform load shall be distributed equally to bottom chord and/or top chord members to the greatest extent possible.
- Maximum single concentrated point load that may be supported by a single horizontal 2” pipe is 500 lbs.
- Concentrated loads shall be hung from top chord members only. Each concentrated load shall have four truss support points, equally distributed between both top chords.
- Allowable concentrated point loads for 8’ – 0” span truss may be doubled provided the load is hung from 4 unique support points, equally distributed over both bottom chords.
- For point loads at intervals not indicated, use equivalent uniform load to determine capacity.
- Truss sections shall be spliced together using (4) 5/8” diameter grade 8 thru bolts or a Truss Corner
- Block with (8) 5/8” diameter grade 8 thru bolts. The 22.5-degree, 30-degree, and 45-degree truss corner blocks shall be located no more than 8’-0” from a support point on both sides.
- Truss lengths of 1’-0”, 2’-0”, 3’-0”, 4’-0”, 5′, 6′, 8′ and 10’-0” have a load rating equal to the 8’-0” truss span, and rare subject to the uniform and concentrated loading restrictions of footnotes 2, 3, 4 and 5.
