Area Four Industries Enjoys a Successful PLASA Show

Area Four Industries had a forceful presence at the 2018 PLASA Show last month, where its products were on display including MILOS, LITEC, EXE Technologies, and Xstage.

This year's PLASA Show was a unique outing for LITEC, as its new MyT Virtue truss was entered in the PLASA Awards for Innovation 2018 and won over many show attendees with its unique design, folding feature, compact form factor, and 60mm main chords that allow use of standard clamps. Its high load capacity was also a favorite, due to the use of high-strength EN AW 7003 T6 aluminum alloy for its construction and integral structural parts assembled with high-grade steel nuts and bolts to optimize performance and eliminate issues related to weld heat affected zones. The nut and bolt construction also allows for easy service of individual truss components that could get damaged during use, such as the main chords or diagonals. Not to mention the 78.5' - 98.5' spans that are possible with the MyT Virtue.

All in all, a great show for LITEC.

Thanks to its special hoist display, visitors were given "hands on" demonstrations of selected EXE Technologies models from the EXE-RISE hoist and EXE-Drive ranges, as well as a first hand look at the EXE-Cell Interface System. EXE-Rise chain hoists feature an 8:1 safety factor, with a compact size and lightweight design for better portability, reduced storage requirements, and lower transportation costs.

The EXE-Drive controller range features standalone and digital multilinked controllers with both four and eight channels. And, the innovative EXE-Cell Interface system is a standalone load cell reader that fully integrates in a chain hoist body to provide riggers with a reading of the individual weight applied to a chain hoist during all rigging operations, in real time.

The new EXE-DST66 (dynamic stack tracks) multipurpose rail system was also presented at the PLASA Show. Designed for larger projects, the DST66 claims amazingly high towing loads and extremely quick speeds.

MILOS racked up another overwhelmingly positive reception at this year's PLASA Show. With a selection of products from its extensive range of truss on display in the Area Four Industries UK stand, the company was well equipped to show the quality of its products and speak with visitors about the many structural solutions it delivers for a wide array of projects.

Xstage made a big splash at this year's PLASA show with the world debut of their new S10 deck, which the company reports garnered a lot of attention from visitors at the show and received overwhelmingly positive comments. The S10's light weight (only 12lb), improved profile design, new cube lock leg attachment system, and hexagrip anti-slip surface were met with approving nods and smiles, which the company shares "has further confirmed the S10 has a bright future ahead, indeed."

It was a great show for all the Area Four Industries companies and they are now gearing up for the LDI Show in Las Vegas, October 19 - 21.
