JTE SuperTruss leads the way for today’s demanding events

PLSN Staff • Product News • August 9, 2019

 

KNOXVILLE – SuperTruss is the advanced duty truss range from James Thomas Engineering for today’s leading live events. Utilizing double-ended forked connections and heavier main chords than their General Purpose range, it delivers higher load capacities and increased ease of assembly, while maintaining the lightweight advantage of aluminum (6061T6 or 6082T6 alloy). SuperTruss also optimizes transport space due to its impressive high strength vs. size ratio.
