Structural Solutions in Aluminium

From design to full system solutions

Suspended Aluminium Rig for lighting, Drapes & Stages


A simple means of getting lighting, drapes and other appliances over a performance area, without upright supports blocking sightlines and causing other obstructions. Can be static, or raised/lowered, depending on requirements for access for ongoing maintenance, adjustment, etc. Commonly used in theatres and auditoriums.

Aluminium Ground Support Structures for Theatres, Exhibition Stands, Schools & Displays

Ground Support

A simple means of getting lighting, signage, and other requirements over the performance area, when suspension facilities are not available, or prohibitively expensive. These types of systems are used in theatres, exhibition stands, schools, and other display areas.

Aluminium Goalpost Structures for Signage, Banners & Stage Backdrops


Required where support is only required from one beam: for example, a stage backdrop, banners, start/finish lines. Generally used for signage where the load is not too significant.

Temporary Aluminium Outdoor Structures for Stages

Types of Trussing

These are the basic range of truss series available, depending on the space available, load capability requirements, and budget.

Further to these, we often make variations on these to suit certain custom applications – for example square tube truss*, our LED inset “Alumin8” tubing*, etc

About Metalworx Ltd

Metalworx Ltd was formed in 2001, the result of a management buyout of the Lighting and Trussing division of Penn Fabrication Ltd (now Penn Elcom). This allowed the new owners to focus time and resources on the development of the structural product ranges, leaving Penn to concentrate fully on its core hardware business. The company is based in St. Leonards on Sea, East Sussex, UK.
