Larson Electronics releases new telescoping light mast

February 20, 2014  By Carey Fredericks

49849Feb. 20, 2014, Kemp, Tx. - Industrial lighting specialists Larson Electronics have announced the release of a 16 foot telescoping light mast with 360 degree 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.”
