Q. What is a lighting stand?

A. A lighting stand is any stand specifically designed to hold stage lights and other visual effects during a live stage show.

Q. What is a lighting truss?

A. A lighting truss is a truss designed to hold lighting and other visual effects during a live stage show. These may be permanently attached to a building or they may be portable. Portable truss systems usually use a set of tripod stands. These stands, though similar, should not be confused with lighting stands which usually have built-in poles to attach your lights too.

Q. What are the different types of trusses?

A. There are 3 main types of truss. 2 Chord Ladder, 3 Chord Triangle, and 4 Chord Box. Which type of choice will depend on how many lights you are going to use. 2 Chord Ladder will hold the least number of lights and should never be used with heavy moving heads. 3 Chord triangle can hold a moderate amount of weight and can usually accommodate 1 or 2 moving heads without any problems. While 4 chord box is what you will find at a rock concert. These can hold multiple moving heads, fog machines and can lights. Generally speaking, the average person does not have a need for a 4 Chord Box truss.

Q. How much weight can a truss hold?

A. The answer to this really depends on the type of light and how the truss is mounted. A permanent mounted truss can hold more than a portable system. Where the mounting points are also plays a part. Heavier equipment should be mounted to the truss close to the points the truss is mounted. As a general rule though, for a portable system you should never put more than 10lbs per linear foot and for a truss that is properly affixed to a permanent structure, this weight may be as much as 15lbs per linear foot.
