MILOS Gets into the Rhythm for UAE National Day

milos-uae-national-day-1.jpgSaudi Arabia based rental and event production company Rhythm Media supplied a 22 x 10 x 12 metre high MILOS trussing structure for the main stage of United Arab Emirates 37 th National Day celebrations in Abu Dhabi.

The structure utilized 6 MILOS MT2 towers and their M520 Quatro trussing for the spans forming a box truss onto which was rigged lighting, sound and AV equipment.

The stage was used for a concert featuring performances by a host of artists, bands and orchestras.

Rhythm media originally invested in the MILOS' MT2 aluminium trussing tower product for its strength and great aesthetics. Each leg is stabilized by two adjustable feet, making for a very tidy footprint. The MT2 Tower was first developed for use in conjunction with the MILOS M400 & M520 trussing systems and is also a basic support unit for the MILOS MR3 Series Roof systems, so it has a very robust and tried-and-tested track record. Each MT2 tower can support up to 2 tonnes of weight loading and can be built up to an impressive height of 12.5 metres.

Rhythm Media has also bought substantial quantities of MILOS M520 trussing as used to make the horizontal support spans for the National Day stage structure.

When they initially had to decide on which trussing brand to buy, they considered all the options before committing to MILOS, which was chosen for its extremely quick assembly, its reliability and its long-span load capacity.

The folding version QuickTruss® M520 reduces storage and transportation volume by 70% and can be exceptionally quickly assembled without any special tools. QuickTruss® M520 Quatro is available in custom lengths and with a variety of junctions, and it can be curved. It comes in natural silver or a wide variety of powder coated colours and finishes.

Rhythm Media ordered their first M520 for the Janadriyah Festival Operetta in early 2008, after which it went into hire stock. Together with the MT2 Towers, the roof/trussing system has been in constant use ever since for numerous different applications and events serviced by the company across Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
