After many months of DQ working with Global Truss to develop a new 5 chord truss especially designed for the suspension of LED screens, we are pleased to announce that Global Truss will be launching the new F45 Truss at Pro Light + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany, 10-13 April 2018.
The F35, F45 and F55 Truss are based on the F34 290mm x 290mm, F44P 400mm x 400mm and F54 520mm x 520mm truss design and, as mentioned, is designed for applications such as LED screens where balanced centre rigging of the screen panels on the truss is essential. A central chord with ladder-style horizontal bracing on the bottom face of the truss allows LED panels to be clamped directly onto the centre chord. This negates the need to balance the load by slinging or bracing across the two bottom chords to provide central rigging points as would normally be necessary on a square format truss.
Patrick Withers from The Music Box is clearly impressed, “On our first test build we found around an 80% saving in labour attaching the first row of a 10m wide screen simply because we could clamp directly onto the centre chord.” Adding, “…and there was no adjustment necessary. It’s a no-brainer!”
“The F45 streamlined the bump in and bump out process of our LED screens. By providing a 5th central chord, it is easier to centralise the load preventing truss roll and reduce the amount of slings required to balance an LED Screen Truss. Overall, there is less labour required and less potential points of failure in the rig.” exclaims GCCEC‘s Executive Manager – Technology, Ben Morris.
