TÜV is short for “Technischer Überwachungsverein” or, translating into English, “Technical Inspection Association.” WikiPedia describes them as “internationally active, independent service companies from Germany and Austria that test, inspect and certify technical systems, facilities and objects of all kinds in order to minimise hazards and prevent damages.”
The certification is internationally recognised and accepted as minimum standards for structural and electrical product safety.
Box truss is a versatile tool in the entertainment industry. It is light, configurable in many ways, and able to carry heavy loads. That said, it does have its drawbacks as well. When the load that needs to be supported from the truss must be centred it can be difficult to achieve.
