Innovative BGR70 truss from Prolyte Group starts successfully26/04/2017
Just shortly after the succesful introduction at the P+S Exhibition of its latest truss innovation the BGR70, Prolyte Group can confirm the first sales orders for this massive truss. This summer the BGR70 truss will feature as mainstage support for the Untold festival in Romania.
The third edition of the Untold festival is held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The festival takes place across various locations in the city, including the impressive 30,000 seater Cluj Arena stadium. The festival brings in around 300,000 music fans across the four days. Untold has already made headlines by winning the Best Major Festival at the European Festival awards in its first year.
With last year building on the stunning debut, festival director Corneliu Ladin (right, on the picture below, next to Prolyte distributor manager Bruno Lerminiaux) is looking to bring the 2017's edition even further: “With the massive capacity and unique features of the BGR70 truss, we can create even more stunning designs, I’m really impressed by the design of this truss.”
BGR70; A low volume truss with extreme load bearing capacity
The BGR70 truss is designed to create large spans that can hold heavy loads. The BGR70 truss is 40% stronger and saves up to 35% transport volume, compared to similar conventional truss systems. Rectangular profiles create a truss that can be used for spans up to 45 metres, still allowing a centre point load of 750 kg. The BGR70 truss is extremely suitable as a mother grid, or to support a front façade for large sets, like on dance festivals. Due to its zero deflection, the BGR70 truss is ideal in applications with motion or LED screens.
Arena Events, based in Romania, has bought over 125 meters of the BGR70 truss, all of which will be used for the Untold Festival. More companies have either invested in the BGR70 truss or expressed their serious interest. Scenos Techninis Servisas from Lithuania and TSD Group from Argentina will receive their first batch in June. STS will use the BGR70 truss for rental purposes on several upcoming projects this season.
Furthemore Prolyte’s Heavy Duty Competence Centre CAST in Germany will organise a special BGR70 Introduction Event to introduce the BGR70 truss on April 27th.
Ralph Stockley, Prolyte Group CCO comments: “Prolyte can look back on a thrilling show. Bringing innovations to the market is always exciting, but the succes of both the BRG70 truss and, not to forget, the Verto truss have been tremendous. It is very rewarding to see the team effort result in such great user response”.
