The look without the weight

Authentic cold rolled steel trusses, replicated in Class A fire retardant, high-impact urethane foam (at 105 pounds per 30' truss), complete with lite flake texture, gussets and rivets, Rival House, Grand Casino, Hinckley MN. Adding further realism, the 3-monitor media center is mounted directly to the 30' trusses.

Any look and less weight. Whether it’s iron, steel, pewter or titanium; plate, beams, pipes or channels; installation is beyond easy.

Our industrial artisans can hand cast materials with steely realism down to the last rivet, weld, hinge and gusset. Forma commercial replications are a fraction of the weight of the real thing, yet they stand up to years of real-world use and never rust.
