The largest in the Metalworx truss range, DT (Drop Truss) is the choice where strength and span are the prime consideration. Designed originally as a space and time-saving option for transporting pre-wired lighting bars with pre-rigged short/standard Par 64 luminaries, DT continues to be used in its own right to great acclaim. In addition to all the customary fixed system capabilities, winched and chain hoist ground support systems are also available.
Typical applications include theatre and concert stage lighting, curtain and screen support, and outdoor roof systems.
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.About
