That sounds extreamly small... What I would call a roof structure starts at around 24'x16' at over 16 feet above the stage. Sounds like your looking for truss and towers...

How many and what type of fixtures do you plan on hanging? Indoors or outdoors? Mobile use?

9 Feet seems really short, maybe just a lighting tree will do the job...

Anyway there are lots of solutions out there, explain your needs and we might be able to suggest a few.

Hi Thanks again.  What I want to hang are some moving heads and par cans.  Let me run the measurments again this should be at least 9 feet tall (15 ideal) by 25 feet wide.
Think got measurments wrong first time.

Hello Andre;

Sorry for butting in, but I suspect there's confusion due to terminolgy.

When you write "roof structure" people are envisioning a support system that completely covers an outdoor performance space, stage, wings, all of it.  The structure not only provides overhead 'points' for the attachment of chain motors to lift and support overhead lighting trusses but also supports a waterproof roof to keep things dry during rain or snow.

From some of what you're writing, I get the impression that you're looking for 25' of truss supported by two 15' lifts, one located at each end of the 25' of truss.
Is this all you're after?
Complete with waterproof roof or not?
To rent or to purchase?

Answer these questions and you'll probably be inundated with links to appropriate suppliers.

Toodleoo!

your are probably right. Or better said yes thats it.  What to buy since have to imported to my home town in central america, and it would be nice with a roof waterproof but if there is an option with out better yet.  
Please help, it has to be used since Ive heard they are very expensive.  Or at least thats what they say in my country.

Hello Andre;

Here are a few links, in random order, to get you started.
If nothing else, these sites will help you better determine and describe exactly what you're looking for.
Check not only for roofing systems, but also for trusses, lifts and supports.

Before you spend your money, be sure you're looking at serious truss rated for overhead use, intended to support the weight and types of loads you're interested in, and capable of being supported from only it's ends.

http://www.jthomaseng.com/jtehome.htm

http://www.prolyte.com/content/products/index.htm

After that, you could post your requirements in several places, the ProSound LAB classifieds forum for example.
http://srforums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/f/14/10139/?SQ=985 436877e93ad3cb435ca02bd439846

Here are a few places that sell used trusses and related equipment.

http://www.prg.com/home/

http://www.christielites.com/

Stay away from light-duty display and / or DJ trusses.

Optimistically a few of the regulars around here will chime in soon.

Toodleoo!
