Aluminium ladder truss is a twin-tube trussing ideal for systems where weight loading and maximum clear span are less important than appearance and storage space. Sometimes known as step truss, ladder truss is generally more cost-effective than Tri and Quad truss systems.
Here at Stage Concepts, we have two variations of Ladder truss, SC Pro SS and Milos M290 Duo. Our system of choice is the SC Pro SS which is manufactured here in the UK, and therefore of the highest quality. With a castellated 48mm tube and 1.6mm wall thickness, the SC Pro SS will allow for a clear span of up to 8m.
Custom Ladder Truss
SC Pro SS Ladder truss straight sections are available from 0.5m to 5m lengths and can be custom made to match your requirements exactly. For example, If you require a straight length to measure exactly 2465mm, we can have it fabricated to your specifications. Custom options such as powder coating with a variety of colours and a polished finish is also available upon request.
Being manufactured in the UK allows us for a quick turnaround, especially on custom projects. We can design and fabricate any size or shape of structure and generally supply within two weeks. This can be an exhibition stand with made to measure dimension to fit in the tightest of spaces, or curved stage systems with high-grade PVC roofs. All we require is a general idea of what you require and we can do the rest.
SC Pro SS Ladder truss also comes with a large selection of off the shelf junctions and accessories including two-way and three-way corners, and four-way junctions. The SC Pro variable angle corners can be especially useful for creating custom systems, as well as circular truss systems that can be designed to suit any radius requirements.Frequently Asked...
