One of the official definitions of truss, courtesy of the Convention Industry Council, is "1) A frame to carry the room of a tent. 2) A structure of steel bars used to suspend lighting or other technical equipment over a stage. 3) To tie or bind something tightly."
In the trade show display industry, truss exhibits most closely fit part two of the CIC's official definition, though their use is certainly not restricted to a stage. Truss displays are known for the flexibility they offer exhibitors, as they are easily customized to fit people's needs, and the range of configurations is practically limitless.
Truss displays have wide-ranging weight-bearing capacities, making them ideal for supporting multimedia presentations. Exhibitors using truss displays have the ability to incorporate items such as lighting, monitors, graphics, and signage into their booths.
A Grand Old Tradition
Traditional truss displays are recognized by their square or triangle-shaped columns, and they assemble using set screws. We offer the traditional truss in 10' x 10' and 10' x 20' sizes.
EZ-Steel truss features sturdy construction and tool-less setup. Graphics are attached to the exhibit's frame using Velcro or magnets. We carry EZ-Steel truss in the following sizes: 10' x 10', 10' x 20', and 20' x 20'.
Orbital truss displays are a stylish and quick-shipping solution for exhibitors and event marketers. Orbital truss features twist-lock assembly and, like the EZ-Steel truss systems, doesn't require tools for proper setup. Choose from 10' x 10', 10' x 20', or 20' x 20' versions.
Hyperlite truss is the newest style of truss in the exhibit industry. It's a unique blend of truss exhibits and custom modular displays. This exhibit is identified by flat pieces, which are paired with small, cylindrical extrusions; this allows for compact storage. Hyperlite truss is also the lightest weight truss, which translates into lower shipping costs for exhibitors. We have three sizes: 10' x 10', 10' x 20', and 20' x 20'.
All of our truss frames are manufactured from powder-coated steel, and the color of the steel can be customized to suit your preferences. All of our truss exhibit hardware may be upgraded as your marketing needs change. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact one of Displayit's exhibit consultants.
