Circular Truss

In addition to straight lengths, ProlyteStructures manufactures circular trusses, curved trusses and arcs. These trusses are manufactured with a high degree of accuracy, ensuring a perfect fit without distortion. Semi-automated welding jigs are used for production to ensure that all parts are identical. This guarantees that every segment of a circle truss can be mounted at any position or be replaced by a new part without affecting the integrity or overall shape of the circle truss.

Circular or curved trusses are manufactured in different diameters or degrees. When ordering a complete circular truss, the number of cuttings required (each segment requires one cut) must be indicated. Couplers do not have to be ordered separately, as they are included in the amount of cuttings ordered. A “cutting” divides the circle into segments. Individual segments cannot be longer than 5 metres. ProlyteStructures recommends segment lengths of between 3/4 metres, and an even number of segments. For further details in this regard, please refer to the Prolyte BlackBook, “Technical Matters”.

For me the training helped me to refresh, especially as I have been doing this for years and years. It helped me to remember things like maintenance and checking the truss. I think I have grown a lot, it has helped me with my rigging and I understand better than I did before.
