tables. This allows for easy, quick design and rapid load calculation. "The truss has a very high load capacity, which can produce
very robust and safe structures," Weltin said. The high load capacity of the ModTruss line and the strong bolted connections result
in robust, sturdy structures. In addition, the high load capacities allow for long, unsupported spans without cross members,
as seen with traditional scaffolding. "This results in a wide-open
space underneath the platform," Weltin said. "Our client's term
this 'recovered space'." The space underneath a platform has often

been unusable for customers and now they can use this recovered
space for storage, offices, etc.
"A ModTruss structure easily integrates with all forms of fall protection on the market," Weltin noted. "A favorite available safety feature
of our clients is what we call ModTruss 'Aerosliders'." An Aeroslider is a
deck that can retract in, or slide out, so the leading edge of a platform
can follow the contour of the aircraft and butt right up to the aircraft,
closing the gap between platform and aircraft. "Unlike some other
similar products on the market, the ModTruss Aeroslider is operated
away from the leading edge of platform for added safety," Weltin said.
Other features include the ability for height adjustment via jacking
or hydraulic columns rolling options and, of course, integration of
electrical and air components. The primary aviation sector that uses
the ModTruss line are MROs and manufacturing.
ModTruss' products come with load table capacities verified by
independent third-party professional engineers that can also stamp
the overall design. ModTruss staffs an on-site design engineer team
that can guide anyone along the way to ensure 100% satisfaction and
delivery of expectations.
Building with ModTruss is very simple and can be achieved through
their virtual warehouse online. "As we often say, the choices are as
boundless as your imagination. A client can tailor the platform to
meet whatever their needs may be," Weltin said. ModTruss is a U.S.
business built on imagination and innovation through continuous
improvement.
