Thomas has rethought truss design to encompass the changing demands of the touring industry. The supertruss design features new double end connectors, which are orientated so that the truss elements are unisex (they can be used either way). Made from 6061T6 or 6082T6 alloy, the truss has 2“ x 0.157“ main chord tubes and 1“ x 0.125“ diagonal tubes.
Supertruss saves truck space because of its very high strength in relation to its size and also the space saving design of the corners.
The corners are simplicity themselves. As for the 2 way corner, only a connecting gate is required to brace between the outer fork connectors. The 3 way corner only requires a connecting gate and 2 square connecting plates. The 4 way corner requires just 2 square connecting plates. In order to use the supertruss with towers, 2 sleeve connecting plates with roller wheels are required with
1 or 2 ladders depending on how many truss connections there are. 60 degree corners require 2 extended double fork connectors and a connecting gate. Other angles can be easily made to order. Variable and vertical connecting forks are available for 0 - 90 degree operation.
