At Prolight + Sound, Prolyte launched its new Verto truss, which attracted a record number of visitors to try and test the new truss. The speedy and silent Verto truss itself also sets records for assembly and disassembly times.
Eric Laanstra, product manager at Prolyte, commented: "We knew the Verto truss would draw attention as the first real truss innovation in years, but you never know to which extent. The Verto truss has received very positive feedback, that's very rewarding."
The Verto truss is based on a new principle of truss connection, where the sections are joined by a rotating coupler system, which offers advantages over existing systems.
Johann Stuut, R&D engineer at Prolyte and the mastermind behind the new system, explains: "Looking at daily working practice for technicians, the goal was to make assembling truss not only easier, but also safer. Furthermore, playing into the trend of ever-shortening production times, reducing the assembly and disassembly time was important – that’s where you can make the difference."
Tested general assembly times are up to three times faster than those for truss with conical coupling systems and seven times faster than any bolted truss. The Verto truss can be assembled by a simple rotating locking system, securing your
truss in seconds, without the need for tools. Due to this, assembly is almost completely silent, thereby greatly adding to safety on the work floor. Tested general sound levels are around 55dB, where a conical truss system generates a sound level of 80dB during assembly.
In the coming months, Prolyte's new Verto truss will be appearing at various trade shows to give all those who missed the presentation in Frankfurt a chance to see and test the product first hand.
