The Alutruss family is growing

Our Alutruss Decolock system has been refreshed with young blood. With the DQ1 we can now offer a 1-point truss.

Besides the 3-point (DQ3) and 2-point (DQ2) versions Alutruss can now present a third member, the Decolock DQ1. This 1-point system offers you even more decoration possibilities.

Decolock DQ1 is made of aluminum. The individual elements are connected via a cone, pivot and pin. The advantage of the conical connection system is that the cones completely fit into the main chords so that highest load capacity is guaranteed. The Quick-Lock system enables fast, efficient and highly aesthetic assembly when the truss constructions are frequently assembled and dismantled.

With Decolock, you can realize compact installations with low self weight, e. g. for shop displays, shop decorations, exhibitions, interior design, fair booths, discotheques and theaters. Decorative frames with advertising signs, transmission canvas etc. can also be realized.

The documentation of this truss system is closely related to the Codes of Practice SQ P1 – Truss Systems published by the VPLT/PLASA. The load table as calculation base can be downloaded before buying the product.

As is known, trussings from Alutruss are assembled in Europe. Most of our customers know, that we lay special emphasis on safety aspects and let our trussing systems be attested by TÜV (Technical Control Board in Germany). Moreover, we do examine the welding certificates of our European suppliers.

But many of our customers do not know, that we deliver most of your orders directly from stock in Germany. Your benefit: no waiting times. You order the desired articles and the goods will immediately be prepared for delivery. In total, about 95 % of the common sizes are always available. And the other 5 % can be provided within a few days.
