Fast Mast Roof Roller Box Systems & Other Vehicle Mounted Mast Solutions

Suitable for all diameter masts in the pneumatic Portable and Keyed ranges, specifically designed for rapid deployment by a single person, the versatility of the Fast Mast enables the user to easily transport and extend their mast from any location where they can obtain access with their vehicle.

‘Fast Mast’ Roof Roller Box Systems

Formed from strong powder coated aluminium, the box contains a roller mechanism which allows forward and backward level adjustment of the mast when parked on uneven ground, and the tow hitch winder assembly enables side to side level adjustment, giving the operator full control of the masts position and stability. The box protects the mast during transportation and comes with clasps for a padlock and dual-pin lock system to enhance security. The box can be supplied in any colour and is easily fitted to standard roof rack bars and standard tow hitch. Fast Mast Roller Box System can be fitted to virtually any vehicle type. Please check the weight load specifications of your vehicle in order to determine the weights of the masts that could be transported.

The uniquely designed Fast Mast Roller Box System is a popular choice for customers who use the mast for their own commercial use and the box provides an excellent space upon which to place company branding such as logos and contact details without the inconvenience of placing them on their vehicle itself.

The Universal Fast Mast Roof Roller Box System

This system has the same functions as the Standard Fast Max Box with the advantage of being much stronger and possesses the capacity to accommodate the heavier masts in the Keyed Mast range including Ø115mm, Ø152mm, Ø200mm, and Ø250mm.

The Universal Fast Mast System is designed to fit to a strong (usually purpose built) steel roof rack and the mast level is achieved by the tow hitch mounted adjuster assembly that also has 2 x Extendable Outriggers with Manual Vehicle Level/Stabilisation Jacks. For bigger and heavier masts, a strengthened roller track is fitted inside the box and a strong steel supporting sub-frame below the box.

How does it work?

The Fast Mast Box is available both Left and Right hand hinged, this function allows the lid to be opened head load equipment installed while the operator is safe on the ground next to the vehicle. Fast Masts should be fitted to the ‘near side’ of the vehicle’s roof rack. The mast simply and smoothly is rolled rearwards, pivots to the vertical position and docks into the tow hitch winder which can then be adjusted for level deployment. The mast can be extended via either a stand pump or a suitable compressor. Full deployment can easily be achieved by a single person in around three minutes. The quick-release clamp that secures the mast into the box allows rapid removal of the mast, which could then be mounted on a tripod or other mounting option if required. A box fitting kit and full installation instructions are supplied as standard.

Vertically fitted mast systems

We have a huge range of masts suitable for through vehicle roof applications that can be easily fitted. All our masts come with a rubber water sealing ring that simply slides down to a roof mounting bracket for a watertight joint. This still allows mast rotation if required. All masts can be ordered with a base flange to allow the mast to be bolted to the vehicle floor and this can be removed to allow the mast to pass through a minimum sized hole in the roof and refitted to secure the mast to the floor.
Masts can also be supplied with manual or electric turning base to allow accurate directional alignment of antennas or other devises. Numerous types of internal cables are available or cables can be fitted into spiralled Nycoil externally. Fitting usually takes around 4-6 hours and is simple to do yourself or we have a full fitting service available by our expert craftsmen. Please see the portable and keyed mast pages where you will find details on the different mast ranges available.
