Moving Light Truss & Lighting Truss Systems

James Thomas Engineering is an industry innovator when it comes to moving lighting truss systems. The metal truss design of the moving light truss accommodates a wide variety of moving lights. While moving lights are not included with James Thomas Engineering’s moving light truss systems, they are also available separately.

Weather it is a moving light truss, or a moving light supertruss; we have the light truss to suit your requirements! The moving light truss was designed around the pre-rigged truss size 91” by 30” by 26” in size, but other sizes are available. Each lighting truss is designed to carry 3 moving light fixtures. Built in handles allow you to lower each of the moving lights.

The moving light supertruss was also designed based on the same pre-rigged truss as the normal light moving truss systems, but they provide a considerable increase in its load bearing capacity over its brother. With a metal truss design made to reduce the amount of space needed for storage, the moving lights can be stored within the truss itself and lowered into position while being used.

At James Thomas Engineering, we live by our mission statement, innovation through design and engineering excellence. We are a proud of our Moving Lighting Truss Systems and our metal truss design, and we stand by our work!
