Light Masts For Sports Pitches, Events, Emergency Services & More

We have an extensive range of masts suitable for mounting lights. Our lighting masts have been in service with many of the world’s military, fire, police, and government organisations for many years and have a proven record of performance for quality and reliability.

We supply a number of precision Tilt and Turn devices and accompanying Lamps. Our lamp units come in a range of voltages and are supplied complete with bulbs, protection grids and fixed or quick-release mounting brackets for attaching them to the masts. We can provide many types of pan and tilt devices which can separately rotate and tilt multiple lights. Our masts can carry an impressive head load weight of over 500kg, with some models requiring no guying assembly as they are self-supporting.

Portable Lighting Masts

We have a range of versatile, lightweight, tripod-mounted lighting solutions simple and very quick to deploy by a single person. Our portable masts range is commonly used for temporary lighting applications and a number of models can be supplied with internal spiralled cables. All of our masts carry the CE mark of quality assurance along with all other certifications generally required by procurement personnel.

Our telescopic floodlights offers flexible sports lighting…

Our telescopic floodlights for sports fields, courts and pitches provide the perfect solution for sports illumination especially when planning consent for fixed columns has been refused due to visual pollution issues. Many sports facilities have been built in heavily populated residential areas where neighbours often object to unsightly fixed columns as they by their nature are always visible. Telescopic floodlight masts are commonly used to overcome this and planning departments favour them and will often grant permission. Our masts can be automatically retracted to as low as I .8 meters or 1 meter. In some situations customers prefer up to 4-5 meters retracted to keep the lamps away from possible vandalism. We can provide strong steel mast protection base tube covers and anti-climb spike clamps and lamps can also be lowered into lamp protection boxes to stop vandalism. The telescopic masts can be centrally controlled remotely from a clubhouse or strong steel lockable control box. Each sports lighting mast can be raised or lowered individually or all masts simultaneously. Internal spiralled cables are available to power the lamps and the entire mast can be rotated either manually or motorised. This can be useful for illuminating alternative areas when required. Pan, tilt and zoom video cameras can also be combined with our floodlighting masts and these can be used for sports analysis or for security purposes.

What else can we do

The floodlighting masts we provide for this application do not require any form of guys even with very heavy head loads such as multiple metal halide lamps (usually with ballast at the mast base). We can fabricate fixed or quick release lighting brackets to your requirements. We can also arrange full design and installation at your facility by our own expert operatives to give you the full turnkey solution.

Sports Pitch Lighting

Our masts are the perfect solution for sports lighting and they are commonly used for football, rugby, tennis, hockey and athletics along with multi use facilities. There are a number of advantages for using telescopic masts against fixed columns such as:

  • Safe and easy access for maintaining and cleaning the lights/lamps.
  • Extremely robust masts with huge head load capacity – over 900 types available.
  • Far less visual impact as the lights can be retracted when not in use.
  • Much preferred by planning authorities and residential communities due to decreased visual impact.
  • Very easy to install and maintain
  • Some masts do not require any form of planning permission as it can be designated as a temporary structure.
  • Anti-climb and anti-vandalism measures can be fitted to all masts.
  • More versatility in terms of location and extended and retracted height.
  • Quick extension/retraction. For example, a 15m mast would take approximately one and a half minutes to extend.
  • Increased pitch use time and increased revenue flow for the club.
  • Reduced light pollution
  • Manual or motorised 360° mast rotation enables you to choose the area to be illuminated, useful for side by side pitches.

Sports Lighting Masts

Mega Mast Range

We have now released the new Mega Mast range that incorporates positive locking collars to lock the sections together for extended periods of time. These range from 115mm up to 340mm diameter allowing for more than 180 height configurations ranging between 3 to 40m. Each collar incorporates two positive locking mechanisms to lock the telescopic sections together while in the extended position without the need to maintain air pressure. This is beneficial for applications that require a telescopic mast to be deployed for long periods such as in the communications, military and construction industry. The Mega Masts can be laterally supported with guy ropes, increasing the stability of the mast. Internally coiled cable, turnable bases and pneumatic accessories are available. Added wiper seals (Sand Scraper Rings) can also be supplied to help prevent ingress of dirt and grit whilst the mast is deployed in harsh conditions.

New 340MMØ Mast Range

We have also released the 340mm diameter mast which is a large step up in strength from the 250mm diameter masts which will allow for larger loads to be raised such as heavy communications equipment. These masts have positive locking collars which prevent the mast tubes from slipping down with heavy loads or guying forces over time. The mast collars are also available with Sand Scraper Rings for applications in harsh environments. As with all our pneumatic masts tubes are constructed from aluminium and anodised silver to protect from abrasion and corrosion.

We are currently working on mast charts, please contact us for further information.

Automatic telescopic vehicle mounted lighting mast

Fireco automatic roof mast

Our version has the added function of motorised lights that will, with the aid of a remote control handset allow the user to concentrate the illumination onto a specific area. The remote control handset is easy to use and can pivot the mast to the vertical position, extend the mast to the required height and fully control the 8 lamps. It can be wired into the vehicle power supply and is very robust. It has an internal compressor and will easily fit to a suitable roof rack or directly to the roof of a vehicle. This type of system is in constant use throughout the world with fire services and so it has a proven track record for quality and reliability.

Portable Floodlighting

 The images shown are examples of portable floodlighting that are commonly used for illumination of large areas such as sports fields, construction sites, car parks and festivals. They are also used by police, fire departments and the military. Their compact design allows multiple units to be transported in smaller vehicles and they are easily deployed by a single person. One of the examples shows a mast with internal cables and can be deployed using a manual hand pump in under 1 minute. Multipacks of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 lights can be supplied, the images show 100w 240v LED floodlights, many other versions are available. There is also images of our Hiperpod Chrome mast which is a manual push up mast with an integral tripod. This mast extends up to 4 metres or 5.250 metres with an extender. Both systems can give 360-degree illumination.
