Larson Electronics Releases a 20 Foot Telescoping Light Mast with 360° Rotating Capabilities
Press release date: August 4, 2014
Kemp, Texas – Industrial lighting specialists Larson Electronics have announced the release of a 20 foot telescoping light mast with 360° rotating capabilities and electric winches for ease of operation. The LM-20-EW 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 twenty feet.
The LM-20-EW 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 20 feet for effective coverage and collapsed to 12 feet. The mast is elevated from its folding position with a 1,000 pound electric winch that is fitted with 3/16 inch cable. A second 1,000 pound electric winch provides the 12 to 20 feet 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. The LM-25 features a proprietary mast guidance system, which provides increased stability during high winds. When lowered to 15 feet, the mast can withstand winds up to 125 miles per hour. The light tower weighs approximately 400 pounds and can easily support and lift 150 pounds of weight.
“The LM-25 offers a fast and secure solution to elevate equipment up to 25 feet,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “Our LM series of towers are powder coated with a glossy blue finish for corrosion resistance and aesthetics.”
