OV30 Ladder

The OV range represents an innovative engineering solution to a common size of truss for the entertainment, event and presentation industry. Designed to the latest Eurocodes, combines high comparative load capacities, low self-weight, and comes at a competitive price. All this whilst analysing the most common slinging / support methods on the truss has determined an ‘engineered’ product that can utilise the most modern manufacturing techniques. The OV range is a series of square and triangular truss systems using conical connectors for a quick fixing method. Brace patterns are specifically designed to withstand the loads and forces implied by all common slinging and support methods. The extrusions used in the construction of the trusses are bespoke to Total Solutions Group and have been rigorously designed to enhance the structural effectiveness of the trusses and also to speed up manufacturing.
