3 CHORD / TRIANGLE TRUSS

3 Chord truss is the most cost effective truss when strength, size and long spans are needed. The extra strength gained by the 3 chord truss makes for horizontal and vertical stability that is critical on longer spans of truss. Great for all situations structural or cosmetic. The 360 degree visibility of 3 chord / tri truss adds dimension and strength to any exhibit or display. This truss can be used in 4 different orientations. Apex up, apex down, apex in and apex out. All of these orientations create an exciting visual and allow for some amazing designs. We highly recommend going to 3 chord truss if the budget allows for it as it will serve you well for many years and the expansion possibilities are endless due to the added strength having less limitations as far as long spans are concerned. A great cost effective choice for your next project with room to expand on other projects in the future. Simply add more truss to create countless variations of truss structures and display components. It's a giant Meccano set !
