Area Four Industries Technical Director Norbert Tripp was one of the distinguished speakers selected to make presentations at the 4th Annual AV Alliance Academy Days held in Stuttgart, Germany on December 4th and 5th.

Norbert was chosen for the conference due to his long time experience as a structural engineer within the event technology industry and his extensive knowledge of truss & the structures that support this equipment.
“The truth behind truss” presentation from Norbert was given on the 1st day of the conference, and covered regulations for truss manufacturers and truss users, statically indetermined systems and cantilevers on truss. Furthermore, he spoke about the correct orientation of truss, the correct way of slinging truss and continuity of truss bracing. The presentation was full of important information and was well received by participants. Since most of the conference participants specialize in light and sound, and are not so familiar with truss technology, many questions were raised, discussed and clarified in a lively discussion.
