Larson Electronics Releases a 16 Foot Telescoping Light Mast with 360° Rotating Capabilities
Press release date: February 20, 2014
Industrial lighting specialists Larson Electronics have announced the release of a 16 foot telescoping light mast with 360° rotating capabilities. The LM-16 is a fold over light mast that provides a safe and effective way for operators to quickly deploy lights, security cameras and other equipment to elevations of sixteen feet.
The LM-16 produced by Larson Electronics features a rotating boom that allows for 360° of rotation, a removable mast head for storing mounted equipment when not in use, and an easy fold over assembly for transportation purposes. This light boom can be extended to a height of 16 feet for effective coverage and collapsed to 10 feet. The mast is elevated from its folding position with a 1,000 pound hand winch that is fitted with 3/16 inch cable. A second 1,000 pound winch provides the 10 to 16 foot elevation of the mast. The 360° rotation is provided by a single T-Handle. By loosening the T-Handle, operators can rotate the mast with ease in either direction. It can be locked into place once the desired position is found by tightening the T-Handle.
These light masts are typically mounted to trailers or other stable surfaces by a 15 inch by 13 inch, ¼ inch thick mounting baseplate which has been predrilled to accept six ¾ inch anchor bolts. A 36 inch wide and ¼ inch thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for lights or equipment. When lowered to 10 feet, the mast can withstand winds up to 125 miles per hour. The light tower weighs approximately 275 pounds and can easily support and lift 150 pounds of weight.
“The LM-16 offers a fast and secure solution to elevate equipment up to 16 feet,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “We can custom tailor these units to the customer’s requirements with longer sections and larger mounting plates if desired.”
