Sixty82 Trussing and Staging Systems Debuts at Prolight + Sound 2018

Germany – Founded by leading figures in the entertainment technology marketplace, brand new company, Sixty82, makes it debut appearance at Prolight+Sound 2018, Frankfurt (10 – 13 April).

Sixty82 pools over 100 years of experience and expertise from three countries to engineer and manufacture next generation trussing and staging systems. With headquarters in Drachten, Netherlands, Sixty82 is a British, Dutch and French alliance designed specifically to bring a fresh view onto the market.

The company founders are Fokko Smeding and Marc Hendriks from The Netherlands, Adrian Brooks and Lee Brooks from the UK and Xavier Drouet, Jérôme Bréhard and Alain-René Lantelme from France, none of whom need an introduction in their sector.

Sixty82 has a clear vision to change the way that lightweight structural systems are used, and introduces unique technology that guarantees every individual component is traceable, safe and properly engineered. Sixty82 has a commitment to innovation and a high attention to detail, addressing many small details that will make big differences to the user.

The company’s products are unique in incorporating individual product personality with the SixtyTag RFID-tagging system. Product personality means that every part can be traced back to exact manufacturing data, and that supplementary technical and user information can be accessed instantly on site using the SixtyApp. This will prove an invaluable resource for riggers and rental companies alike by allowing component level track and trace out of the box.

Sixty82 products have improved load performance and high production accuracy, and industry standard compatibility. This means large, technically challenging constructions can be achieved with the same simplicity and peace of mind as the use of individual products. And with key personnel having been involved in the development of European safety standards since the turn of the century, and all products independently assessed and approved, Sixty82 products deliver the highest quality and safety.

With some of the trussing world’s most experienced and trusted individuals behind our product line, we are extremely excited to be launching Sixty82 at this year’s Prolight+Sound,” says Sixty82 CEO, Fokko Smeding. “Our passion has always been to supply the industry with safe, well-manufactured products, and back that up with our trademark – superlative, knowledgeable customer service. We have focused on the introduction of new technology that will become an industry standard within a short amount of time, and in providing our customers with confidence and security.”

Sixty82 will make its debut appearance at Prolight+Sound 2018 in Hall 3.0 Stand E71.
