Ladder Truss – when loading and maximum clear span are less important than appearance and storage space, then ladder truss (or SST – “Single Sided Truss”) is the way to go. Both full truss junctions and alternative, lower cost options are available for this format, and lifting eyes, single pole uprights and adaptors to take full truss uprights are also offered.
With a clear span capability of up to 8m, typical applications for SST include lighting grids and exhibition or retail structures where both display and storage space is at a premium.
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
