Our pneumatically controlled aluminium mast systems are commonly used throughout the communications industry. They can be used as portable temporary platforms for directional or omni-directional antennas or fixed in permanent positions. We have a huge range of over 900 masts, with extended and retracted heights to suit any application. Our base tube diameters range from Ø45mm to Ø250mm and can carry impressive head loads of up to 500kg.
Who uses our communications and antenna masts?
Our masts are in service with many of the world’s military and government organisations, police, fire brigades, search & rescue teams, broadcasters, and both professional and amateur radio users who utilise them for omitting and receiving a an expansive range of data transmission and radio frequencies. We stock a range of mast to antenna adaptors, and are able to rapidly produce custom brackets to suit user’s requirements.
We offer a full installation service for specialist vehicles, such as TV broadcasting, or we can supply full fitting instructions for systems integrators. Mechanically operated masts are increasingly employed by the communications sector, and provide an alternative to the pneumatic operation of the majority of our range, enabling users to extend and retract to precise heights remotely via PC or other such devices. The MecMast has impressive lifting capacities and all of the new electro-mechanical range is compliant to military standard – MIL-STD-810, thus requiring far less maintenance than all other types of mast on the market. The MecMast is equipped with a manual over-ride function, base tube size range from Ø127mm to Ø250mm and up to 20m extended height. Please view the MecMast product page in Special Mast Systems for further details.

Telephone Signal Boosting
Our masts are commonly used at outdoor events and other places where large groups of people gather such as exhibitions, etc. As so many people now use smart phones, this can cause problems as the fixed telecommunications masts cannot cope with this increase in demand. Customers generally choose masts from our Portable range, between 6m to 12m, and install boosters to increase signal strength and coverage. You can choose to buy or hire our extremely lightweight Hiperpod, that has proven popular for this application.
- The unit is easy to assemble, stable and weather proof. Our coaches and players are extremely pleased with the results.Brisbane Lions AFC
- We purchased two portable 17m Ø101mm mast from Total Mast Solutions prior to the 2013 season. The two masts soon became part of our match day operations at our reserves games in order to deliver the same camera views as the AFL. The masts have been a valuable teaching tool as they provided us with the elevated view from behind the goals, which we didn’t previously have. The masts have played a crucial role in player development, analysis of team structures and game plans. We are very pleased with the product and the service it allows us to deliver our coaches and players.Harrison GarlandPerformance Analyst- WAFL Coordinator, The West Coast Eagles, Australia
- I recently purchased a 17 meter fast mast – new 4" or 101mmØ version from Total Mast Solutions for photography. After seeing their video on their site I called the sales team who promptly answered my questions. It duly arrived on time and I unpacked and fitted it to my vehicle which was very easy as all was explained in the fitting instructions. After using the mast myself I can say that it does do exactly what the video shows, I suppose that's why they called it the fast mast!! It is a great quality product supplied by a team of professionals. I have also had a lot of help and advice on marketing my service which has saved me lots of time and money Thanks to all at T.M.S.Mick Turner
- After trying some expensive and frankly unsafe alternatives we were searching for a quick and safe method of obtaining photos of incidents and accidents from 60ft and luckily came across Total Mast Solutions. After being given a practical demonstration of the 17m fast mast we decided this was the most suitable for us and made an order. The team at Total Mast Solutions are a friendly lot and our order was dealt with rapidly. We have used it for crowd monitoring and lots of other applications and it has proved to be very reliable.Adrian Wells, BscUK Health and Safety Executive
- We have used the 7.5m Ø101mm mast and video equipment for the last two years. We invested in this technology due to a lack of elevation at our amazing brand new training facility. We have been really happy with the mast and video equipment solution that was originally purchased for high, end on footage, but its versatility and ease of use has meant we use it as our main capture camera from all areas of the field. The footage is of high quality and the 7.5m height provides a fantastic angle and in turn as great coaching and analysing tool. I would highly recommend the mast and video equipment from Total Mast Solutions to all sports teams, it has been a fantastic investment for the club!Richard Whiffin First Team Backs Coach, London Irish Rugby Club
- We use the 6m Ø80mm mast and video equipment for filming training sessions and games at all ages, abilities and for both genders. Both players and staff have gained so much from using the SportsMast, the analysis side has helped us massively and made our performances far better - it has been an invaluable learning tool. It’s helping us with self-assessment, tactical play and we get to focus on and understand exactly what is happening when we play sport! We can give our players feedback and pinpoint areas for development which in turn massively helps with their personal development, plus our students really enjoy watching themselves play! I would recommend this easy to use, amazing piece of kit to anyone and everyone!Steve Thompson Director of Sport, Solihull School
