Outriggers & Ground Support Tower Systems

James Thomas Engineering’s support tower systems are integral to your supertruss system. Thomas offers a variety of support towers including our baby tower, 12″ x 12″, 15″ x 15″ and 20.5″ x 20.5″ super towers. Our ground support towers are capable of supporting 2,000 lbs to over 4 tons.
James Thomas Engineering’s baby tower is capable of supporting 2000 lbs to a maximum height of 26 feet in a 4 tower configuration, 18 ft in a 2 tower configuration with the tower outrigger section fitted, or 14 feet as a single tower with the tower outrigger arms and section fitted. James Thomas Engineering’s support tower outriggers are designed to provide stability and rigidity to single or 2 tower systems.

The larger James Thomas Engineering support tower systems are manufactured for the purpose of providing a lifting medium for a variety of Thomas trusses from, 20.5″ x 20.5″, Heavy duty, Supertruss, and Pre-rig truss through to Roof systems. These ground support towers can reach a maximum height of 40 ft using our 15ft tower and over 60ft with the 20.5″ support tower. These systems are capable of lifting 4 tons or more depending on the set up and arrangement, ideal for lifting heavy pre-rigged trusses and roof trusses.

James Thomas Engineering’s towers will provide the necessary equipment to support a truss rig in venues where the flying points are either not strong enough, or not in the right place. Our ground support systems are manufactured to accommodate the strictest demands from the entertainment industry. Contact us for more information.
