Abacus Lighting
The SB bracket range is compatible with all base-hinged masts. Brackets incorporate a standard flange, enabling them to be fixed to the matching flange supplied with the mast.

The masts can also be fitted with an additional clamp-on bracket for lower-height floodlights (requiring on-site drilling to feed through additional cabling).

The brackets also feature an M20 bolt with an anti-rotation ‘cup’, which prevents the stirrup from moving.

In addition to the standard brackets shown, we can also design and supply bespoke brackets if required.


There are two categories of brackets - sports and area lighting. Both types are fitted with Abacus anti-rotation floodlight cups.

The brackets are supplied in easy-to-assemble kits, requiring the minimum equipment to put together.

Sports Lighting

Sports lighting brackets feature angled-back cross arms as standard, directing the floodlights to their target positions more effectively. To maintain the necessary central floodlight mounting height, some brackets require a mast height reduction of either 1.5m or 2.5m. The product code for the mast is adjusted accordingly.

Area Lighting

Practical, simple to build on site and cheap to transport, the ‘hub and spoke’ bracket arrangement is most common for Area lighting. They make it possible to achieve both 180° and 360° floodlight layouts.

Technical data for columns & masts
The performance data for columns and masts gives their basic technical attributes only. The technical performance of a column or mast will be affected by local site conditions (terrain type, distance to sea, site altitude, windspeed) and the headload being carried.

Please Contact the Abacus Technical team to confirm the suitability of a column or mast for your application.
