NEW STRUCTURE SYSTEM FROM HTS

Leading structure manufacturer, Röder HTS Höcker GmbH has recently introduced, PREMIUM LINE, a new generation of innovative clear-span structure systems. 

Designed and engineered exclusively for the Australian and NZ hire markets and fully compliant with building code requirements, the new system is available on 2.40m, 3.00m and 4.00m eave heights and covers the ever popular clear span widths of 10.00m, 12.00m, 15.00m, 20.00, and 25.00m.

This state-of-the-art PREMIUM LINE structure system is available in both standard “A” frame and curved roof rafter designs. It uses one upright / rafter section and fully interchangeable components throughout the entire range size range from 10.00m – 25.00m, making it an ideal structure system for professional rental companies.

The system was designed to provide rental companies with a highly versatile, yet simple and quick to erect, tent system offering customers total flexibility for future company growth. The standard structure is supplied as a standard frame with PVC covers. Customers can purchase rafter (straight or curved) extensions at anytime and thereby increasing the building width to 25.00m wide. 

Additionally, adding any combination of accessory items can complement the system. These include: fully integrated glass walling, ABS walling, cassette flooring, gutter systems, premium door sets, overhead door canopies and internal liners.  The system can also be supplied with a comprehensive set of handling stillages for framework, PVC covers and all accessories enabling easy handling of product both on and off-site.

The PREMIUM LINE system, already successfully launched in the UK and USA, offers both financial and operational advantages to rental companies when compared with other structure systems. If you are looking at taking the next step into larger clear spans or upgrading your current inventory, look no further as this newly designed system cannot be bettered!

 For further information and to learn more regarding the advantages this new system offers the operator, call Roger Makin or Daniel Smith on:  03 9729 9855; or email us at roger@roder-hts-hocker.com.
