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 pins each end, in the configuration of your desire. The structure will always remain rigid, and strong.
Smartstage aluminum lighting truss, 16 inch box truss, (available in triangle truss), 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 box truss and lighting truss comes in multiple lengths for lighting show performances, and multiple applications. Smartstage lighting truss is easy to install with truss pin connection, comes in multiple lengths from 1′ to 10′, with numerous accessories. Smartstage 16 inch box truss is 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
Less height, more strength, the load transfers DIRECTLY with clevis, MOST efficient.
The load capacity of Smartstage 16″ truss, is higher than any plated box truss, with the efficiency of load transfer direct through the clevis.
A great feature is four sided integrity. You can use Smartstage 16 inch boxtruss with any side up, and retain strength, no top or side designation.
- Span indicates distance between truss supports.
- Uniform loads shall be distributed evenly across both truss chords and can be applied to either top or bottom chords.
- Values at single span truss labeled “bc” are for uniform loads applied to truss bottom chord. Values at single span truss labeled “tc” are for uniform loads applied to truss top chord.
- Maximum point load that may be applied to truss chords between panel points is 250 lbs. at each chord member simultaneously.
- For truss to support indicated loads, point loads shall be hung from truss panel points only. Truss shall be oriented to ensure load is applied at panel points.
- For point loads at intervals not indicated, use equivalent uniform load to determine capacity.
- Loads shown require trusses to be connected at end supports to each chord member (i.e. 4 connections ea. end of truss).
- Capacity of additional support structures, components or connections are outside the scope of this analysis.
