In the rental industry, vertical truss towers rentals are divided into two types. Truss and base and truss and ballast. Truss and base is used primarily indoors and truss and ballast are the outdoor cousins. Both are used for lighting support, signage and similar applications. It’s important to note here that truss and ballast is a proprietary system, developed in house with our parent company, Production Experience, Inc., and featured in our New Product showcase. Other companies may offer this item, but it was born and developed by our engineers!
Using Rental Truss and Base in Indoor Environments
Truss and Base has been around for years in the rental industry. Normally, It’s the combination of a 8 foot or 10 foot long piece of 12 inch x 12 inch truss, connected to a base that usually measures about 3 foot x 3 foot square. Truss and base has many applications, acting as signage support, gateways and lighting support for ballroom or tradeshow events. At In Depth Events, we have literally thousands of feet of trussing in almost every length available.

Using outdoor Truss and Ballast – rentals with attitude!
In outdoor environments, the best way to hang lighting and signage is to use our truss and ballast systems. These 20’ tall vertical truss towers are supported by a 3600 pound ballast. As a result, these towers are the safest for outdoor rentals of lighting and signage on the market today. If outdoor signage for festivals are your interest, then make sure and check out our event planner guide for Outdoor Signage and Structures.
In addition, private or corporate outdoor events may require commercial bulb stringers or area lighting to be successful. Our truss and ballast allow hanging of commercial bulb stringers with ease, and can hold area and décor lighting, as well as theatrical and FX lighting.
