For its weight and size, Milos Truss is incredibly strong. The tables showing point and distributed loads per span along with weights are all shown below.

There are two main types of Milos Truss, V & B. The V is made using thick wall aluminium tube. This makes this range of truss heavier than the B, but it does also mean that it is stronger, and less susceptible to light damage often caused in transit and by hook clamps. Enlightened's hire and rental stock is exclusively V (thick walled) with the exception of the 4m circle. Both types are interchangeable and can be used together.

Important: European / American & UK Specification

Enlightened Lighting stock exclusively the UK Specification of Milos Truss.   This is different and does not interconnect with the European / American Specification.

The UK specification can be noted in 3 ways:

  • On the coupler receiver there is a machined grove, 3mm wide, 10mm from the end of the receiver.
  • The European / American specification conical couplers are shorter and fatter than the UK conical coupler.
  • The part number on the labels, identifying each section of truss will have a F after the series description, i.e. QTVF is UK, QTV is European / American.

Although the UK specification coupler will fit in the European / American Spec. truss - IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED OR ADVISABLE. Specific couplers that allow you to connect the two specifications together available to purchase.
