Project by Area Four Industries
The LITEC Alusfera 76 II roof was selected to serve as the main stage for one of the most unique concert beach events - the “Summer Beach Arena”. The 21.5m (W) x 13.4m (D) x 10.3m (H) Alusfera 76 II roof served as an impressive backdrop for the performances and featured two 12 metre high towers for the main PA. The main truss used in the construction of the Alusfera II is LITEC’s one-of-a-kind LIBERA 76 truss. Unlike standard box truss, LIBERA is a flat truss and was designed as an open structural system that uses standard modular elements connected together in ways that allow varied design and geometry of the finished structure.
Project by Area Four Industries
An extreme amount of lighting and sound equipment had to be hung in the centre of the elliptic building for PUR's concert. Unfortunately, venue did not have enough loading capacity to support the equipment needed for the concert. German rigging structure company Malecon was tasked with overcoming these limitations and turned to the new steel truss line from MILOS to help solve this problem. The resulting solution used MILOS 145REC S-RTW Steel Truss to create two 42m spans that were each rated for a total load of 9,000 kg. Additionally, the Area Four Industries Direct office delivered an intelligent support structure design to support the impressive octagon-shaped LED screen that would hang over the centre of the stage.
