Why use truss for your tradeshow display?

Trade show truss displays offer many advantages over other types of portable display systems. Truss systems are made up of standard straight and curved truss sections that can be attached end to end or at 90 degree angles to each other. This reduces the manufacturing load to only a few standard parts but at the same time allows nearly endless variations of form when designing a booth using exhibition truss. Truss suppliers offer several types of truss, such as collapsible; which allows for the parts to be “flattened” for shipping, allowing for truss display systems to ship in smaller containers But it is the new truss connectors that really make exhibit truss desirable. All truss requires is that each piece be connected in some way. The old style standard truss booth demanded that each truss piece have an insert in each cord that was expanded- or locked, to put the system together. This really added to the time and labor needed to get the truss displays ready for the show. The newer, faster connectors do away with these types of connectors, substituting faster and easier connector systems. Trade show truss has been part of the exhibit environment for years and many new, but few used,  truss displays are offered on the marketplace today for that very reason. Truss display suppliers are a bit different than some of the others, as they require a good background in engineering and load-bearing to operate in the  truss marketplace. Also, they must be familiar with a wide variety of trade show truss parts. Not just any vendor of displays can sell truss , as quite of bit of detailed  knowledge is needed when addressing trade show design. Knowing the differences in steel truss, aluminum truss, lighting truss, multi-level truss and liability is very important. Truss exhibits may be: standard truss systems; which are now portable, collapsible and more easily connected, or "no tools" which operate as the name implies.The new Trussworks connection system has become the industry leader. Midland Display started the trend in easier connecting of trade show truss parts but Trussworks designed a truss hardware connection system utilizing only one wing nut per section, without compromising load bearing. They invented a steel bracket that simply slips on the truss booth at each connection point, needing only one wing nut, thus carrying the load through the truss hardware instead of the nuts and bolts (or PVC) connectors found on other systems. This made for a faster set-up, with the fewest parts yet with load-bearing retained .It is now the simplest portable truss display system.Comparing all the truss types in the market is difficult, but some aspects stand out. It is important to know the load-bearing capability of the truss you are buying, along with the quality of the components that make up the system. Next, how does the product you are buying go together? Are the connections simple? Do the lighting components attach easily? Is the vendor knowledgeable about all thedifferences in truss display systems as well as the basics in design fundamentals? Truss exhibits may be the most versatile of all exhibit systems, because of  flexibility, utility, ease of use and the inherent long lifespan of  truss displays. TSTD has more truss than anyone, with staff knowledgable about truss application.
