Basic info

Long demanded by the touring industry, the Pre-Rig Truss (PRT)
Sunshade has quickly become a 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 provides a safe operating wind speed of up to 40 mph and the
live loads (equipment loads) that can be applied to the system
include a 5,000 pound (2,268 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.
