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 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.
