Stadium & Area masts (30m - 70m)

50 years’ engineering experience on projects all over the world has taught us a lot about the importance of flexibility, attention to detail and customer service. As such, we offer a range of solutions to suit you.

  • External ladder access with optional rest platforms
  • External access using the manrider elevator system
  • Internal access, with a ladder running up the inside of the mast
  • External access by means of crane and basket

Control gear and protection equipment
Most of the time, control gear and electrical protection equipment is mounted in cabinets at or near the mast base. If space is limited, however, or you'd rather preserve the clean, straight lines of your mast, we can increase the dimensions of its base and conceal the equipment and access ladder inside (up to a limit of around 60 2kW floodlights).

Control gear is mounted on the inside wall of the mast and accessed by ladder

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.
