Since the first model was introduced over 50 years ago, Abacus base-hinged masts have become some of our most popular products worldwide. Robust, simple to install and easily accessible, they’re incredibly cost-effective – especially since they require minimal ongoing maintenance.
The unique operating system – the first and still best of its kind on the market – is as safe as it is simple, with its gravity lock and quick-lowering mechanism.
These masts do exactly what they say on the tin: raise and lower from ground level up to a height of 50 metres. There are eight models to choose from – mainly used to mount floodlights, CCTV cameras, wind turbines and compact communication devices.
Quick and simple to assemble and install – up to three times faster than fixed or winch-lowering models
Safe – no climbing, as all maintenance and floodlight adjustments can be done at ground level
Virtually maintenance free – thanks to straightforward design and robust engineering
Attractive – with no ladder or platform to interrupt the mast’s
clean, modern lines
Versatile – with eight models, all designed for different load weights
Particularly suitable for high-wind or hurricane-prone zones, as masts can be lowered in advance of storms
All masts are designed to the British High Mast standard, Institution of
Lighting Engineers’ Technical Report No. 7. All models are hot-dip galvanised to ISO EN 1461. Base-hinged raising and lowering masts with gravity locks are installed and operated using an independent hydraulic cylinder counterbalance unit.
Masts are assembled and installed at ground level using low-capacity equipement.
Safe and simple maintenance at ground level. No climbing, no high level platform with difficult access.
Up to 50m high and built to last, with low-cost maintenance.
