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.
