Basic info

Long demanded by the touring industry, the Pre-Rig Truss (PRT) Sunshade has 
quickly become the favorite system for small to medium-sized productions. 
Designed for rapid disassembly and mobility, the PRT Sunshade may be utilized 
in a variety of venues. More importantly, the system is built from industry 
standard components like 93” Double Hung Pre-Rig Truss and Mark I Towers, 
which add to its versatility. 
Two options are available. The “Peaked” Sunshade is patterned after our BFT, 
where the cross stage runs of truss are sloped approximately 5% to form a peak 
in the center. A canopy is attached to the components of the main body. The 
“Flat” Sunshade (shown below) incorporates a canopy rail system above a flat 
Pre-Rig Truss grid to form the roof’s pitch. Both options are available with PA 
Wings formed with a 123” section of Double-Hung Pre-Rig Truss used to connect 
each downstage tower to an additional tower. 
It claims a safe operating wind speed of up to 67 mph and the live loads 
(equipment loads) that can be applied to the system include a 19,500 pound 
(8,845 kg) uniformly distributed load (UDL) on the main grid and a 5,000 pound 
(2,268 kg) speaker load on each PA Wing - making it ideal for many applications.
