ShowTrek Gate Beam

If you are suspending a load, such as scenery, lights, curtains, or speakers above theatre stages, auditoriums and public spaces you will require a rigging batten.

Formed from high strength, light-weight extruded aluminium, the ShowTrek Gate Beam flat truss is a completely seamless rigging batten. The top and bottom tubular profiles couple easily with industry standard barrel clamps, scaffold fittings and pipe trolleys, such as ShowTrek’s TrekTrolley and the seamless joins allow pipe trolleys to travel unhindered from end-to-end.

The brace panel between the top and bottom chords can be profile cut to suit specific requirements giving endless possibilities for structural or artistic choices. The solid construction and continuous webbing give the ShowTrek Gate Beam exceptional strength resulting in minimal deflection under load.

Made in Adelaide, South Australia ShowTrek’s Gate Beam is available in 2m to 7.3m lengths or combined to any length.
Powdercoat finishes offer a wide variety of colour choices.
