Telescopic Mast Systems

Telescopic Mast Systems

Ranging from our super light weight Hiperpod Standard, with a base tube diameter of 45mm, up to our largest 250mm diameter keyed masts, Total Mast Solutions continually aim to provide affordable yet high quality products to enable customers to obtain the altitude required for their particular task. Our pneumatic telescopic masts are constructed from anodised aluminium that is resistant to the elements* and available with a fully customisable range of guying, mounting and transportation options to suit each user’s application. Our masts are extended using either a hand pump or a 12v/24v/110v/240v air compressor.

Manual or Electronic Mast Rotation

Allows full 360° rotation of the entire mast at its base. Turning masts have a 360° counter which allows precise rotation and a manual clamp to lock it in the required position. When ordering a manually rotating mast, a rotation hand wheel which clamps around the mast should also be ordered. A rotation upper mounting bracket is also available. This is commonly used to secure the mast when fitted to a vehicle. It clamps the mast but still allows rotation. All our masts have a rubber roof mounting sealing ring fitted as standard - this is simply slid down to meet the roof mounting bracket to create a water tight seal.

Electric turning masts can be operated using a remote control and fitted with a potentiometer which allows the user to control both the exact rotation and extended height.

Keyed Masts

'Keyed’ refers to the keyway that runs the length of the masts to prevent the tube sections from rotating. They can be rotated from the base either manually or electronically. Keyed masts are available in Ø64mm, Ø77mm, Ø90mm, Ø115mm, Ø152mm, Ø200 and Ø250mm (base tube diameter size), extending up to 40m in height and capable of carrying head loads up to 500kg.
