What is Lighting Truss Made of?

The primary materials most commonly used for stage lighting trusses are global Aluminum and Steel.

Aluminum, because of  its durability, light weight and ease of transport, is the choice for use in concert or stage production.  This allows for a quick and easy setup and strike.

For installations that are permanent such or where high load ratings are required steel truss is the easy choice. No matter what the project, always know the load ratings of your truss and deal with professionals.
