I need to clarify. My company is not looking to purchase a rigid truss system, if that were the case we would likely not be having this debate. What we are doing is designing a system in-house that will compete with systems currently on the market. The part about this project that has me in a bunch is the fact that we are requiring each section of truss to collapse in order reduce its volume for packing. There are no rigid planes and the entire structure relies on the strength of the individual members. Knowing this, are we still comfortable with aluminum?
