Rigging & Truss Equipment
Hire of trusses: Ensuring the success of your lighting
Planning an event, exhibition, function or congress? Then you surely already know that lighting is a fundamental element of your undertaking. Essential components of a successful lighting concept include what are known as trusses. This is an aluminium crossbeam which fulfils several functions in event technology: it serves to stabilise and secure live loads (such as lighting equipment) and graphics and it also serves as a connecting element and visual highlight. At A+M Schott Beleuchtungstechnik GmbH you can hire trusses – for a period limited to the duration of your project and at a fair price.
Our online catalogue for the hire of event equipment is backed up by an immense warehouse stock enabling us to fully equip even large-scale projects. Thanks to our wide Prolyte range (truss systems) and the related accessories of all kinds, we can fulfil your every lighting wish.
2-POINT, 3-POINT OR 4-POINT: THE RIGHT TRUSS FOR EVERY OCCASION
Generally speaking, truss systems are categorised according to their construction, which has a decisive influence on the application of the truss. Accordingly you can hire from us the following aluminium trusses:
- 1-point truss circle (Global Truss)
- 3- point truss circle (Prolyte: H30D)
- 4- point truss circle (Prolyte: H30V)
- 2- point truss (Prolyte: H30L) (ladder truss)
- 3- point truss (Prolyte: H30D) (triangular)
- 4- point truss (Prolyte: H30V) (square)
You can also hire trusses in various colours (e.g. in black or silver), a range of sizes/lengths and shapes (corners and angles) and for various levels of load. The frames can be used to build a wide range of truss constructions (e.g. cube-shaped truss boxes). For small loads smaller aluminium truss sizes are possible. There are also aluminium crossbeams made for greater loads, but in a larger size. This enables truss constructions (also called rigs) of all kinds to be created with ease, such as gates and whole constructions above exhibition stands.
We are happy to advise you as to whether you will need 2, 3, or 4-point trusses for the lighting you want to create and we also design complete lighting concepts for our customers if required. We use only brand products from renowned manufacturers such as Prolyte (e.g. the popular trusses H 30 V and H 30 D from Prolyte), which provide maximum safety and functionality.
We are also happy to supply products from Prolyte & co. if you simply want to expand your own stock of trusses for a limited time and decide to hire instead of buy for reasons of cost. We have a large stock of various trusses with which you can complete your project.
HIRE FLOOR PLATES AND SECURE SAFE PATHWAYS
In the case of vertical trusses a floor plate ensures sufficient stability and steadfastness and can also be hired at the same time as trusses and rigging materials.
To ensure that visitors to your exhibition, function or outdoor event are safe when walking across your venue – if necessary – eye-catching black and yellow markings can be added to the floor plates to minimise the risk of accidents.
TRUSS CIRCLES: SOLUTIONS FOR EXHIBITIONS, CONFERENCES AND CO.
In order to enable the realisation of individual lighting concepts, besides straight trusses, corners and angles, truss circles made up of several sections are also needed. Not only floods and spots can be mounted onto a circular truss system, but also, for instance, decorative elements in the inner and outer circuit. We can provide for hire 3-point and 4-point truss circles in various diameters and different colours (black and silver).
Elevated trusses, truss circles and other truss components are not only flexible in their application, thus enabling the construction of very different structures; the light aluminium material also means that they are easier to assemble and transport, which is a particular advantage for the technicians.
HIRE OF RIGGING MATERIALS: TRUSS HIRE WITH ALL-ROUND STRESSLESS FACTOR
Our truss hire can provide not only the crossbeams but also the accessories and materials for assembly. This means that your employees have everything they need for quick and efficient construction and dismantling of whole truss systems and lighting concepts, e.g.:
- double couplers / clamps
- half couplers with eyelets / gizmos
- chain shorteners / sliders (Reutlinger)
- deco slider with steel cable
- steel cables in various lengths and thicknesses
- Round sling / steel flex
- sealing rings
- shackles with bolts
HIRE OF MANUAL CHAIN HOISTS & MOTORISED CHAIN HOISTS FOR RAPID INSTALLATION AND DISMANTLING OF YOUR CONSTRUCTION
If you want to hire trusses and assemble them at your event, manual and motorised chain hoists with cable accessories are essential aids to implement successful event technology. Manual chain hoists are easy to use even in small spaces like an exhibition stand because they don’t need any power and take up little space. For structural reasons however only a small number can be used for simultaneous lifting, e,g, one single truss system. Besides manually operated chain hoists for various loads we also hire motorised hoists like ChainMaster D8Plus Motors with controllers. These have the advantage that the loads do not need to be additionally secured and a number of D8Plus motors can be used in parallel to lift a rig. This makes the rigging process faster, safer and more flexible, even in the case of particularly complex loads.
HIRE OF COMPLETE LIGHTING EQUIPMENT FOR INNOVATIVE LIGHTING CONCEPTS
If as an event planner, exhibition architect or lighting technician you hire the required equipment, including trusses, this has two decisive advantages over buying: firstly hiring the materials is cheaper overall than a purchase, since above all the truss circles and rigging materials are very expensive to buy. In addition you don’t have to worry about finding the not inconsiderable space to store the truss systems, nor about the annual inspections of the rigging and truss materials after conclusion of your project.
Our services cover not only the provision of truss systems on hire but also other items which we use to create a sophisticated lighting concept for your exhibition, event or shop: from us you can also hire the lights, e.g. floodlights, spotlights, wash lights and lamps of all kinds (LED technology as standard), which expertly set the scene in a space or location - as interior lighting as well as outdoor. The electrical equipment necessary for installation of the (LED) lighting can also be found in our catalogue. In A+M Schott Beleuchtungstechnik GmbH you have a partner who can provide all you need from a single source: electrical equipment hire, truss hire, lamp hire.
HIRE OF LIGHTING EQUIPMENT: BERLIN, GERMANY, INTERNATIONALLY
If you wish to hire lighting equipment our company based on the outskirts of Berlin operates for you not only in Berlin and Brandenburg, but also throughout Germany and beyond. In the case of projects in Berlin and the surrounding areas we deliver rigging materials, lighting and electrical equipment on request using our own fleet of trucks. If your event location, exhibition stand or conference is in another territory we provide national and international transport in conjunction with freight companies. Of course you can also arrange the collection and return yourself.
