Is truss safe? We safety test Titan AV lighting truss.

by Mooke on September 04, 2019

VFM's number 1 priority is safety, that's why Titan AV truss is the only Australian independently certified truss on the market!

Titan AV Truss undergoes independent laboratory testing to certify it meets (and often exceeds) Australian engineering safety standards. Designed in Australia and constructed by expert welders using the strongest materials -Titan AV truss is built to last!

Not all truss is created equal 

Truss made with lower grade aluminium's (like the 6061-T6) are weaker in structure and unable to safely hold heavier loads - buyer beware!  

When you're shopping for truss it's important to check:

  • Quality of construction (integrity of the welding),
  • Design (for limitations of use),
  • Materials (or grades of aluminium) used.

Titan AV Truss is made from the highest grade 6082-T6 aluminium alloy - ideal for use in high stress applications, cranes, bridges and truss - making it the safest truss on the market! For added piece of mind Titan AV Truss comes with 2 years manufacturer's warranty.

Testing Titan AV truss

Go behind the scenes to see our Titan AV truss independently safety tested by Alfa Test (Australian independent inspection and testing company) as they put the Titan AV 400 5 Chord Truss through its paces. In this safety test we rigged a 15metre span to test using 5 x 3m Titan AV 400mm 5 Chord Truss.
