What is Truss?
Truss is a construction material made of aluminium. Truss weighs very little, but when it is used in the correct manner it has a very high maximum weight load. Truss can be used in many different ways at events. Many events use truss as a framework on which to hang lighting, signs, soundsystems, or video systems. Despite truss being very simple to use, it must be set up in the correct manner. In order to guarantee the safety of the constructions, there are very strict rules for working with truss. Truss is a modular system. This makes it possible to build all different kinds of shapes and sizes.
Renting a Truss Construction
A truss construction is ideal for many events. You can rent a truss construction to place over a dance floor, convention stand, catwalk, exhibition, or stage. You can subsequently use the construction to house all of the necessities for your event. This inclues lighting, sound, video devices, special effects, decorations, and banners. Truss is a fully modular product. This means that you can create all shapes and sizes of constructions. We have given a few examples of truss constructions above to give an idea of what is possible. Of course, you can fuly personalise your truss construction. Any size is possible (as long as they adhere to the safety regulations). You can adjust the height, width, and length according to your needs.
Renting Truss for conventions
Truss is a popular product at conventions. It is very simple to hang lighting, banners, and decoration for your stand on a truss construction. We try our best to make it as simple as possible to rent and set up your truss construction. We are more than happy to provide advice and to think with you about your truss construction. We also offer fair prices for delivery of truss to all convention locations: Amsterdam RAI, Jaarbeurs Utrecht, EXPO Houten, Evenementenhal Hardenberg, Evenementenhal Gorinchem, Evenementenhal Venray, Ahoy Rotterdam, EXPO Haarlemmermeer, Flanders EXPO, Antwerp EXPO, Brussel EXPO, Messe Frankfurt, Messe Essen, Messe Friedrichshafen, Messe Berlijn, Messe Düsseldorf, Ijsselhallen Zwolle, and others. You will only pay for rental on days that the truss is being used (convention days): we will not charge you for set up and break down days.
Renting Truss for a trade show
Do you need a convention stand multiple times a year? Maybe you need it at one of the Messe Hallen in Germany, an EXPO location in Belgium, the Amsterdam RAI, or at a location in France or Spain? No problem. We are happy to think with you about how to make your convention stand as multifuncational, compact, and budget-friendly as possible. The more convention stands you rent, the cheaper we can offer them to you. We can provide you with more information about the possibilities for your trade show. Contact us for information.
Hanging Truss by Hoists
Do you want to keep your floor space free? That’s possible. We can also hang truss from hoists in the ceiling of your space. The prices named above for floating truss constructions are exclusive of possible local rigging costs. This means that event locations such as the Amsterda RAI, the Utrecht Jaarbeurs, and some EXPO locations will charge extra for the use of their hoists. We will provide you with the correct drawings and will estimate the costs for you.
One stop shop
Being able to rent everything you need from one trustworthy supplier is great. You can come to HWC Events & Rentals for anything you need for your event. We rent truss, but also convention lighting, spots, and mood lighting. Sound systems with wireless microphones. Video devices like projectors, TVs, and touchscreens, and even everything you need for stages or catwalks!
