Designed for use with popular floor-standing truss podiums, the DT-DYNO WHEEL from DuraTruss is an innovative new product that provides lighting users with a more flexible framework on which to mount their fixtures, making it the ideal truss-topper for touring rigs and stage setups.
A genuinely unique product that’s ideal for mounting lighting fixtures in the center of the room, the new DT-DYNO WHEEL is a circular truss-topper from DuraTruss, designed for use by lighting designers and production teams who want to get more from their setup and their lighting effects!
Adding extra scope to any lightshow, without the need for horizontal trussing, the DT-DYNO WHEEL is a simple but effective concept that simply slides directly onto the top of any F34 square truss, providing users with a convenient, vertical truss solution for their touring rigs and on-stage setups. Incredibly popular in stage design, truss pillars are a staple of most modern rigs, but thanks to the arrival of the intelligently designed DT-DYNO WHEEL it’s now possible for users to mount multiple lighting fixtures to the top of their trussing, without the usual restrictions created by the pillar itself.
Boasting a circular design, the new DT-DYNO WHEEL gives lighting designers the freedom and flexibility to hang their moving heads directly downwards or outwards, positioning them all around the truss wheel for hitting different parts of the stage or venue. This means that users can easily hang their moving heads, for stunning downward-facing beam effects, while par cans, washes and spots can also be mounted for when stage washes and spotlighting are essential. Due to its adaptable design, users can also hang branding and signage from the DT-DYNO WHEEL, opening up additional production and marketing options, whether setting up on-stage, down on the exhibition hall floor or inside a house of worship.
This combination of aesthetics and functionality is what makes the new DT-DYNO WHEEL such an essential piece of kit for a range of users, from lighting designers to stage managers to event organizers. Allowing users to be more flexible in how they position and direct their lighting, the circular truss lets a unique visual spectacle be created, making it ideal for touring productions and stage sets, including church lightshows and outdoor events. Lighting designers love trying to achieve innovative and unique results on every job they work – and the DT-DYNO WHEEL lets them get super imaginative!
“We’re always seeking ways to make the life our customers easier, but we also want to give them more flexibility when it comes to their touring rigs and stage setups,” explained Ken Kahn, president of DuraTruss. “The DT-DYNO WHEEL basically makes it easier for lighting users to be flexible with how they mount their fixtures, allowing them to point their moving heads and other effects straight downwards thanks to the circular shape of the trussing. This means a more flexible, creative lightshow, without the need to erect horizontal truss.”
Thanks to its simple design and sleek 2-inch (50.8mm) trussing, the DT-DYNO WHEEL allows a clean display to be created at the center of the stage or venue, running the cables across the top and down the middle of the truss pillar for a neat and effective presentation that will help users stand out from their competition. Furthermore, users can make their display even tidier – and their life even easier! – by using wireless fixtures.
As well as offering a range of practical features, the DT-DYNO WHEEL can be conveniently incorporated into any touring setup, thanks to its relatively low net weight (30 lbs (13.6kg)) and manageable 39in (999.7mm) diameter. Despite this compactness, it still provides enough space for mounting a selection of moving heads or other lighting fixtures, so users get the best of both worlds! The DT-DYNO WHEEL can also hold an evenly distributed weight of up to 220 lbs.(99.7kg), so users can hang a variety of lighting effects from the wheel for greater variation and scope.
Giving users the flexibility and freedom to create an awesome on-stage visual spectacle, the DT-DYNO WHEEL boasts the perfect combination of practicality and aesthetics, thanks to its simple-to-use design and circular shape. With the DT-DYNO WHEEL it’s now easier and more affordable than ever to mount multiple lighting fixtures without erecting horizontal truss, ensuring a varied and unrestricted lightshow that will blow audiences away!
