Trussing for Disco


Recommended Posts

Not necessarily.


The 50kg weighting is for downwards loads only and takes no account of the sideways load caused when mounting truss on a stand.

Some stands specifically state that they are not to be used for supporting truss or bars that span between two stands.

There are lots of makes of stand! Manfrotto (sometimes badged Arri ) is one I like. (manfrotto.com) their wind up ( http://www.manfrotto.com/Jahia/site/manfro...f=2&child=9 ) and wincher ( http://www.manfrotto.com/Jahia/site/manfro...=2&child=13 ) stand ranges should cover your needs.


Teamwork (41/42 Foley Street, London, W1W 7JN. Tel: 020 7323 6455) is my preferred supplier for Manfrotto.


Look at many, Look also in the mobiledjforums.com Many there are wise.


Beware the £50 for 50kg stands some inspire more trust than others and some last batter than others.


for a freestanding stand 30k is a good load for an economy stand before the prices start to rocket.


Whan calculating the loading please add the weight of the crossbar truss and the cable.
