Up-lighting with Box Trussing

December 8, 2008 by Mobile Beat

The Box Truss Sleeve, part of the new Glow Skirts line by DJ Skirts, is sold in pairs with or without the Chauvet LEDrain 56 par can. The Box Truss Sleeve is available in 10-foot and 5-foot sizes and comfortably stretches to fit popular models such as the “Global Truss”. It is made of Lycra, which is also known by the brand name Spandex.An important note is that Lycra is not fire retardant (FR) unless treated with a sprayed on application. Many companies who make Lycra products are not made FR. Please be aware that if treated, Lycra is only FR until washed. This applies to any Lycra product made by any manufacturer, and the FR properties will dissipate if laundered. The Glow Skirts Box Truss Sleeve is treated with FR properties, and will pass the fire code test “NFPA 701” until washed.

Note: All other DJ Skirts/Glow Skirts products may be washed unlimited times and still remain FR (just like the day you bought it).

The Sleeve Bag/Wrap, sold in pairs, is an accessory item that is also available to protect the sleeve in transport and storage. This is for those who do not want to remove the “Sleeve” off the Box Truss in order to save time. White satin on the inside and black polyester on the outside, it wraps around the truss, using Velcro-style fastening. Conveniently, another option is to use this item as a bag. It too has a Velcro-style opening and more room than you’d believe. Used either way, it will protect your Box Truss Sleeves to gain much longer use.
