Global Truss Single Tube Style

June 8, 2009 by Mobile Beat

LOS ANGELES – Global Truss brings greater versatility to trussing with is new F31 Single Tube Truss. Since it’s made of a single 2″ beam, this truss can be used to form a clean, thin frame, making it ideal for framing signs, banners, curtains and LED panels.

The versatile and expandable F31 truss comes in a wide range of sizes, so it can be used to make square or rectangular frames of any length or diameter. The F31 truss can even be used for freestanding signs when anchored with Global Truss’ sturdy Tube Base Plate (sold separately).

Connecting F31 segments together to form the desired size and shape is easy, because each piece of Single Tube Truss comes with attached conical connectors, which incorporate Global Truss’ famous conical coupling system. This unique connector, developed from “mouse-key” technology used in oil rig structures, helps to maintain overall rigidity, particularly at key stress points. Conical coupling is also quick and easy to assemble, and because it is genderless, each piece has even greater versatility, offering more rigging options.

“The new F31 Single Tube Truss opens up more uses and possibilities for trussing, in retail displays, on stage and in mobile DJ applications — and more,” said Kenneth Kahn, general manager of Global Truss America. “Anyone can use it for virtually any purpose, whether you want to set off a sign or display with framing or light a display. Its uses are endless.”

Although extremely lightweight, F31 truss is also very rugged and durable. That’s because it’s made of the same high-strength 6082-T6 extruded aluminum alloy as Global Truss’s other trussing products – a material so strong, rigid and corrosion-resistant that it is used by the aviation industry for aircraft construction.

The Global Truss F31 Single Tube Truss comes in six sizes: 1.64′, 3.28′, 4.92′, 6.56′, 8.20′ and 9.84′. Manufacturers suggested retail prices range from $59.95 to $109.95.
