Creation of Trilite
Inventors of Trilite, Aluminium Fabrication

Trilite was created in the UK in 1982 to support the rapid growth of [OPTI] Kinetics. The Trilite TUV certified trussing systems were designed as a strong, lightweight and portable system to promote [OPTI] Kinetics lighting products. Trilite as a brand name is one of the most trusted and versatile ranges of aluminium truss systems in the world. Trilite soon attracted international attention and an additional factory was built in Canada to help meet the growing demand for aluminium trussing. As a market leader in custom fabrication, Trilite operates in various markets and continues to have unrivalled lead times in Europe and North America.

Created in the UK in 1982 by two best friends, our British company was created to bring the best truss suport system, and first of its kind, to potential buyers.

The two experts in engineering established Trilite, providing a simple support solution that complies with safety standards, for those that need strong, stable, lightweight supports that are movable and can easily be used across different fields; from sound engineering, education and events, retail, artwork, movie work, and much, much, more.

With it’s aluminium truss and certified system, the brand soon attracted international interest, and Trilite needed to expand its family tree to meet with growing demand. As such, our friendly team of professionals needed to make more products, and welcomed our friends in Canada to join the company.

As part of the [OPTI] Group, Trilite maintains its strong links with [OPTI] Kinetics and Kelsey Acoustics.

Why are structures made from aluminium?

We use aluminium to create our safe and sturdy supports because:

– It’s strong and light weight making it a magnificent metal to use
– It’s cost effective and requires less material than structures made from other metals and materials
– It can be shaped to create outstanding structures
– It is safer as it’s more resistant to corrosion
– Aluminium is sustainable, and recyclable, giving it the ‘green’ go ahead
