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 windspeed of up to 67 mph and 
the live loads (equipment loads) that can be applied to 
the system include a 13,500 pound (6,124 kg) uniformly 
distributed load (UDL) on the main grid and 5,000 pound 
(2,268 kg) speaker load on each PA Wing - making it ideal for 
many applications.
