FRP Masts safeguard lightning protection systems.
December 19, 2008 -
Composed of combination of polymer and glass fiber reinforcement materials, FRP Masts are corrosion-resistant and designed to withstand environmental, chemical, and temperature extremes. Units safeguard Early Streamer Emission lightning protection systems from ocean spray and constant wind exposure in harsh environments. Applications include residential facilities, factories, industrial plants, hospitals, schools, and virtually any other rooftop installation.

Surviving the Stress: Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Mast Systems
Early Streamer Emission (ESE) lightning protection has never been so simple or more efficient. Alltec Corporation has developed the Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Mast to enhance the overall resilience of its lightning protection systems. FRP's are comprised of a combination of polymer (plastic) and glass fiber reinforcement materials. The end result is a durable, lightweight, easy to use system designed to outperform traditional steel mast systems.
Alltec's FRP Masts are extremely lightweight, yet stronger per unit than most metals. These masts are corrosion resistant and designed to withstand environmental, chemical, and temperature extremes. Unlike standard steel masts, FRP Masts safeguard LP Systems from ocean spray and constant wind exposure in the harshest environments. And did we mention that they are nice to look at too? Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Masts are aesthetically pleasing and come in a wide-range of options. For a longer service life and decreased maintenance costs, choose Alltec's FRP Masts. Contact us today so that we can discuss total solutions to your lightning protection needs.
FRP Masts are used in a variety of applications, including: residential facilities, factories, industrial plants, hospitals, schools, golf courses, and virtually any other rooftop installation, including large structure or open areas. Unlike traditional lightning rods, ESE Terminals can cover a protection zone up to a 357 feet radius. This makes them especially valuable for large facilities that would otherwise be difficult or cost prohibitive to protect by conventional means.
Lightweight and modular construction of Alltec Corporation FRP masts reduces shipping costs as well!
