Without doubt, the Verto truss has been the most mentioned product innovation of
the Prolight+Sound exhibition. From the launch on April 5th till the last day of the
show, a record number of visitors have tried and tested the Verto truss, while quite
a few were brave enough to take up the Verto Speed Challenge. The speedy and
very silent Verto truss, sets records in assembly and disassembly times.

“The feedback we received during the show has been tremendous, we have been
constantly busy. We’ve raised an immediate demand for this truss – way beyond
our highest expectations’ comments Ralph Stockley, CCO.

“We knew the Verto truss would draw attention as the first real truss innovation in
years’ continues Eric Laanstra, Product Manager, “But you never know to which
extend. The Verto truss has received very positive feedback, that’s very rewarding’.

The Verto* truss brings a totally new perspective on truss assembly and is
described as a game changer in our industry. The Verto truss is based on a new
principle of truss connection, where the sections are joined by a rotating coupler
system. This system has great advantages over existing systems.

Looking at daily working practice for technicians, the goal was to make assembling
truss not only easier, but also safer. Furthermore, playing into the trend of ever
shortening production times, reducing the assembly and disassembly time was
important – that’s where you can make the difference’ states Johann Stuut, R&D
engineer at Prolyte and the mastermind behind this new system. Tested general
assembly times are up to 3 times faster than those for truss with conical coupling
systems and 7 times faster than any bolted truss.

The Verto truss can be assembled by a simple rotating locking system, securing
your truss in seconds, without the need for tools. Due to this, assembly is almost
completely silent, thereby greatly adding to safety on the work floor. Tested
general sound levels are around 55dB, where a conical truss system generates a
sound level of 80dB during assembly.

Prolyte can look forward to a very good market response, based on orders already
accepted at the show and the given overall interest.

“We know we would shake up the truss world a bit, but still, this was a dream
launch, you never dare to hope to receive such wonderful feedback on a product
presentation, we’ve been the buzz of the show’ adds Marina Prak, Head of
Marketing. “It’s wonderful we now can offer this product with a special 25%
introduction discount, celebrating our 25th anniversary in style’.

In the coming months, Verto truss can be found on various trade shows to give all
that have missed the presentation in Frankfurt a chance to see and test the product
first hand.
