GS Truss

G.S. Truss combines the lateral strength of Minibeam with high vertical loading. It is a 347mm OD square truss and comes in exactly the same lengths as Mini Beam, i.e. metric and imperial modules, and can be adapted to be used alongside in certain circumstances. In addition, Slick’s Mini Ladder Beam system can be used in conjunction with both Mini Beam and GS Truss giving greater flexibility to the designer. GS Truss is widely used in tower applications and can be made into a self climbing tower with the addition of a purpose built steel base unit, head block and a variety of Sleeve Blocks.
