- Rapid Deployment Hinged Articulating Tower Poles suggested uses, supports & applications:
- Cameras for: security, production floor observation, warehouse inventory, weather observation.
- Illumination lighting at: parking lots, schools, rest areas, city streets, airports, ski hill slopes.
- Antennas for: broadcast, PTC, SCADA, wireless internet, point to point microwave.
- Rooftop mounted equipment.
- Meteorological MET instruments, environmental weather research stations.
- Wind turbine generators.
- Flags, banners & signage displays.
- Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.
- Scientific research test monitor devices requiring elevated locations.
- Civil Defense warning sirens & public address loud speakers.
- Traffic control signals, warnings & flashing lights.
- Aircraft warning lights, obstruction lighting, lead in & runway lighting.
- One person cable winch operation to silently raise or lower the tower/pole.
- Lockable with padlock, vandal resistant & not climbable.
- No tower climber, bucket truck or specialty contractor needed to gain access to pole top.
- Hot dip galvanizing coating of the tower pole is standard.
- Limits personnel activity exposure when raising or lowering pole in high risk areas.
- Feed cables routed inside the bullet resistant pole & no need to disconnect cabling when hinging the pole.
- Use of our Ballast “tower-skid base” for rapid site deployment by filling our ballast pan with rock or concrete.
