FENIX trusses at Dance Afrique Festival Dubai 2015






In October, the largest African Dance Festival took place at the Meydan Racecourse in Dubai, at which the international superstar Akon was the main artist. The festival also featured other musical performances as Congolese musician Awilo Logombia and singer and songwriter Flavour of Nigeria.

FENIX products were also at Dance Afrique Festival Dubai 2015, thanks to the work of our client, Solution Media and Infotech Ltd. As main structure SQR-52 was used, reinforced squared 52 x 52cm truss (4mm thickness).

Further, this truss has the following characteristics:

  • Conic union
  • Main tube: 50 x 4mm
  • Braces: 30 x 2mm
  • Alloy: EN-AW 6082 T6

These features make the SQR-52 a super resistant and perfect truss for large-scale stages.

The curvature of the ceiling was achieved with straight sections, followed by corners with a few degrees, which together gave the impression of a curved roof.

The roof dimensions were 30 x 13m internal with 6m internal wings where IMAG video was shown. PA systems were hung from scaffolding towers outside of the roof structure. Trim height of the roof truss was 12m to the bottom cord.

In this Solution Media and Infotech Ltd's video, you can see part of this stage's assembly:
