TOMCAT, manufacturer of staging, lighting and support systems to the entertainment and leisure industries, is introducing a new product line of truss, (core). This product line initially consists of 12" X 12", 12" X 18", and 20.5" X 20.5" box truss. The focus behind (core) was to develop a stronger, slightly lighter and ultimately less expensive box truss based on market demands. "With so many customers being hit hard by the economy as well as other demands, we set out to develop a less expensive product," stated General Manger, Stefano Rosellini. "What we discovered in the process was that we could also make the product 24% stronger - adding a great deal more value for the customer," added Rosellini.
The first offering in the product range is (core)12. TOMCAT has essentially taken conventional 12" X 12" light duty box truss and modified the components to provide a more efficient truss - at a more efficient price. At only 60lbs for a 10' section, able to sustain 1040 lbs total UDL over a 40' span (a 200 lb increase over conventional light duty) and at a price of $390.00 per 10' section, (core)12 offers a considerably stronger option at an unbeatable price. It is light duty stripped to the core.
Other sizes and accessories are being developed to complete the (core) product range and are expected to be available by June 2009. TOMCAT truss products meet ANSI E1.2-2006.
