1) How is it any different from other truss products on the market? TRUSST® is backed by Chauvet & Sons, Inc. The line is manufactured with very high standards, as demonstrated by our TÜV certification of CT290 TRUSST® products and our commitment to using only GSI SLV-certified welders in the manufacturing process of all TRUSST® products. In an effort to make adopting to TRUSST® as easy as possible, we designed our truss to mate with several other major brands of trussing that utilize conical connectors.

2) Will TRUSST® work with other types of trussing products? Yes, TRUSST® easily mates with other major brands of truss of the same size and connector style.

3) What is TÜV? TÜV is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) that certifies the load rating and structural integrity of truss products. TÜV certifies our CT290 TRUSST®. As a third-party certification body, TÜV tests at their European facilities in addition to tests performed at our factory.

4) What type of welding process is used on TRUSST®? TRUSST® uses only GSI SLV-certified welders in the construction process.

5) What kind of applications is TRUSST® suitable for? Made from high-grade aluminum and assembled by certified welders, the truss pieces can support over 2,700 pounds on average. Built with care, TRUSST® is designed for exhibitions, mobile entertainment, production and retail applications.

6) Does TRUSST® use conical connectors? Yes, it uses conical connectors.

7) What is a deflection? Deflection is the maximum allowable amount of bowing or bending, typically measured in inches or millimeters. This determines just how much bending is allowable in reference to structural integrity.

8) What is UDL and CPL? UDL stands for Uniformly Distributed Load, describing how the weight—or load—distributes on the truss. It’s how the values found on a loading and deflection table are generated. CPL stands for Center Point Load, again describing the distribution of weight on the truss. Other types of loads are TPL (Third Point Load) and QPL (Quarter Point Load).

9) How much is it to ship a piece of truss? We suggest contacting your local dealer for availability, this will allow you to pick it up and save shipping costs.

10) Where can I purchase TRUSST®? TRUSST® is available through a global network of authorized distributors and dealers.
