Following a significant investment of over £400,000 StagecraftUK has become the UK’s biggest stockist of industry-leading OV Truss – meaning that its clients can take advantage of the truss’s quicker set-up and break-down times as well as its significant improvement in strength and weight loadings, over more traditional products.

The OV Truss has become an almost-essential piece of equipment for the entertainment, event and exhibition industries and can be supplied by StagecraftUK as either part of the full event production service the company has become well known for, or as part of their new ‘dry hire’ offer.

The OV range, manufactured by Total Solutions, uses conical connectors for a quick fixing method and the bracing patterns are specifically designed to withstand the loads implied by standard slinging and support methods. The bespoke extrusions used to manufacture the OV range have enhanced the structural capabilities, increasing load capacity over larger spans. There are a number of ancillary products to the standard box truss, which include base plates, hinge plates and a variety of truss circles.

With rates starting from as little as £7 per linear metre, StagecraftUK is able to offer the latest innovation in truss solutions at an exceptionally competitive rate. Backed up by NRC qualified riggers to install or advise.

“We have invested a lot in the OV Truss over the past 18 months, which means that we are able to offer all of our clients across the country the best possible solutions for their event needs,” comments Gerald Salt, StagecraftUK’s Managing Director.  “And our new dry hire service also means that event production companies or companies that need access to OV Truss and other event production essentials can hire the equipment directly from us at competitive industry prices.”
