Curved trussing: arc sections, full circles, ellipses, etc.
Ladder truss radius is orientated in two standard ways: “horizontal” or “flat”, which is commonly used for screen surrounds; and “vertical” for when there is equipment to be suspended. Both are commonly used for arches. Of course there is nothing to prevent either of them being used in other situations – if necessary please call for advice.
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
