Frequently Asked…

What is lighting truss?

Lighting truss is an aluminium framework used to support a range of equipment across a stage area. It is commonly used to mount lighting, audio and visual equipment, curtains and advertising banners. Lighting truss can be seen everywhere, including; stage and television productions, concerts, exhibitions, clubs, fashion catwalks and shops. It can either be installed permanently or transported between venues, and a range of types are available to suit all requirements.

What types of lighting truss are available?

There are many different types of lighting truss available to suit various needs. These include, ladder, triangle and quad truss. We also offer pre-packaged truss systems which provide everything needed for set up. Each type of truss is suitable for different purposes, for instance ladder truss is perfect for lightweight systems, such as supporting displays at an exhibition. While quad truss is ideal for heavy duty rigging, so would be perfect for a stage production, and supporting extensive lighting and sound equipment.

What is the best type of lighting truss?

The best type of lighting truss will depend on your requirements, for instance; weight load, size, portability, and usage. We provide truss from major manufacturers, including Milos, Duratruss, Global truss, Alustage and Prolyte, and we also offer custom UK truss manufacturing facilities. Our team at Stage Concepts would be happy to advise you on the different types of truss so you can find the best system for your needs.

How do you connect lights to truss?

Lighting equipment can be easily clamped to truss, using a suitable truss lighting clamp. We provide many variations of clamps and couplers to suit all truss types and loads of up to 500kg. Our range includes simple G-clamps, half couplers, and more specialist swivel couplers. These clamps and couplers can easily fasten a variety of equipment to a trussing system.

How do you assemble lighting truss?

The process of assembling lighting truss varies depending on the brand and type. The majority of truss fits together using conical connections, with a locking pin and clip system to hold them in place. Start by building the top section of your truss at ground level to create a frame. Next add the legs in sections to raise the frame up. To minimise the need for height access equipment, try to keep connections at a low level.

How much weight can lighting truss hold?

The weight load of lighting truss will vary significantly depending on the type of truss being used. For instance ladder truss is designed for lightweight equipment, while quad truss is suitable for heavy weight loading, and can support hundreds of kilograms worth of equipment. Please contact our team at Stage Concepts for more information on weight loading.
