Sold - Optikinetics Opti Trilite ladder truss - 2m Straight sections - £45 each

This will be the very last of the current tranche of truss. As can be seen from the picture below, on offer are 6 pieces of 2 metre long straight ladder section truss. They have all been very lightly used are in near mint condition.
Due to their length, they are above the size that can be sent cheaply using regular carriage services, so it might be best to call and collect, the good news is that this size will fit inside even smaller hatchback cars (with a little care). Alternatively I may be able to arrange personal delivery, subject to a suitable time slot.

Each length will be sold with 2 spigots and mounting fixings.

The price is just £45, this should be the cheapest price in the UK, unfortunately I am not able to go any lower, that is the final price, take it or find better elsewhere if you can.

Rigging Hardware - Optikinetics Opti Trilite truss collection

This week is a bit of a hiatus from the recent flurry of work and I have had a chance to set about clearing out some Optikinetics Opti Trilite trussing that isn't getting used as much as it should. If you've made it to this page, you probably don't need to be told how useful trussing is, or the multitude applications it has. But I bet you didn't know that Truss is derived from Old French trousse, which means "collection of things bound together".

Originally bought by a company as their exhibition stand, I used it for a number of jobs, most notably in a "goal post"configuration in a room with a terrible low ceiling. Thankfully that room is not used for events any more, but then neither is my Trilite trussing.

So here's a quick list of parts of the parts I am collecting:

9 of 2 Metre straight sections, part number 2TR2000
2 of 1 Metre straight section, part number 2TR1000
3 of 0.6 Metre straight sections, part number 2TR600.200
2 of 90 degree 2 way right angle sections, part number 2TR5290
2 of small base plates, part number 3ABP3T 
Huge number of truss joiners, nuts and bolts

The 2 Metre sections are too long to send by regular courier service, so they will have to be collected. For multiple items I would be able to arrange personal delivery, as has been the case with other oversized items listed on this website.

Time to move this truss!

Don't forget Opti Trilite 200 is the original aluminium truss system,it is a highly versatile, strong 2 inch aluminium tube truss system used in exhibition halls all over the world.  Opti Trilite is perfect for all types of temporary or permanent structures inside or out.

OPTI Trilite 200 is produced in three formats Ladder (2 main tubes), Triangular (3 main tubes) and Quad (4 main tubes). Here are its key features
  • Opti Trilite 200 has a simple M10 Nylock high tensile nut and bolt system
  • Opti Trilite 200 is quick and easy to assemble
  • Opti Trilite 200 has great length to weight and loadbearing qualities
  • Opti Trilite 200 has 10 Straight Lengths from 0.4m to 8.0m
  • Opti Trilite 200 Curved Sections to maximum length of approximately 2.0m to any radius over 0.8m
  • Opti Trilite 200 has junctions from 2 Way to 6 Way in all formats
  • Extensive range of Opti Trilite 200 Accessories

UPDATES:

21/11/2013 - I posted the above picture on the Dodgy Technicians Facebook Group and created quite a stir, my method of transportation seemed perfectly legit to me.
21/11/2013 - 2 sections of 2 Metre sold and collected.
23/11/2013 - 2 sections of 2 Metre, 1 section of 1 Metre and 2 base plates sold and collected.

Time Out - When feedback can be a good thing

Feedback - no not the annoying acoustic type, but the return of information about the result of a process or activity type. Or in plain language, "you asked for it, so I made it happen".

All items currently listed for sale now have PayPal "Buy Now" buttons. Smaller items can be sent to Europe or the USA in addition to the UK and there is a drop down box to reflect who the different postage rates affect the sale price.

Most customers over the past 6 months have only been after a single item, so I haven't implemented a full "Shopping Cart" system yet. If you need multiple items and want to save on postage feel free to use the contact page and I can always put together a special order for you.
