2207 kg's UDL at 8 m

TP pins & R3 Clips



Minibeam is a small, medium-duty, extremely compact trussing system which employs the standard, fork end fitting joint, which is quick and easy to connect with the use of Slick truss pins and conforms to the latest EN and DIN standards. Minibeam is available in both imperial and metric modules. Also in the Minibeam range is the recently introduced universal corner. Minibeam has an impressive strength to weight ratio, being able to typically take 1708kg uniform load on a 10m span and with its small size can be easily managed; this is very useful when truck space is tight.
