What Is An Aluminum Truss?

Mar 01, 2017

An aluminum truss is a support component used in the structural construction of numerous apparatuses, from lighting fixtures for large indoor or outdoor events to actual components of roofing systems used to support roof loads. These support components are made entirely from hollow aluminum tubing, which can either be cylindrical or square in shape. Structurally speaking, the cylindrical shape is more conducive to load-bearing structures. Aluminum truss work is used in more places than most people notice, from simple displays in store fronts or outdoor festivals to structural roofing systems to support lighting arrangements at concert venues.

The way that aluminum trusses are designed allows them to be used structurally in many different uses. Usually, the aluminum truss system is a four-tube system held together by a series of braces that run in both a vertical and diagonal pattern to support any type of weighted load, regardless of the direction of force the load puts on the truss system. The design of these aluminum truss systems make them as versatile as any material, and more versatile than many others. There are many different series or values in aluminum truss systems, from light duty to heavy, more structural duty, with different capabilities and weight ratings for each grade of system.
