TeleScoping Mast / Pole

These heavy duty aluminum alloy TeleScoping Poles are designed for use as telemetry antennae masts, surveillance camera mounts, lighting, or any special purpose application requiring easy access or maintenance. 

Mounted in a permanent base, poles can hold up to 80 lbs of equipment with low wind resistance at a height of 18-feet, up to 25 lbs at 30-feet, or up to 5 lbs at 45-feet. 

Collapsed to less than 108-inches, poles can be shipped via standard delivery services and easily transported to remote locations or within  structures.

Poles are hollow, suitable for a lightweight cable to be enclosed within pole.  However, special care must be exercised to feed and retract cable during extension and collapse of pole, as any cable inside a pole is subject to entanglement and twisting.

Made of drawn 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, these all metal poles and locks are extremely strong, durable and easy to use.  Segments lock in place automatically with a simple twist when each segment is extended to full length. Unlock occurs by simply reversing the same motion. 

Poles can be made in custom lengths, heights and any number of segments in batches of (100) or more.  Call for further information. 

Custom poles may be made in any length of segments from 3-feet to 8-feet each. Longer segments may be possible for use with lighter weight equipment. Hybrid poles with more than 3-segments are available for special applications, using lightweight 6063-T832 drawn aluminum alloy tubing for the top segments. 

Standard base segment diameter is 3½ or 3-inches, with segments 2½-inches and 2-inches for extruded tubing, and 1½-inches and 1-inch for lightweight drawn tubing.

J-Lockô TeleScoping poles are produced in large batch orders for custom manufactured applications.  A limited quantity of 18-foot J-Lockô TeleScoping Poles and other miscellaneous sizes are available for individual orders

Poles MUST be mounted securely for any application.  External pole mounts suitable to be set in concrete or solid rocky ground, are available for various types of permanent installation. Custom pole mounts for permanent structural installation can be made available by special request, cost to be determined.  A base mount suitable to be set in concrete, or solid rocky ground, is available for various types of permanent installation. 

For equipment with a higher wind resistance, secure guy wires will be required to control lateral stresses.

Tip end diameter for standard pole is 2.0 inches.  Hybrid poles tip end diameter are 1.5 or 1.0 inches.  Poles may be fit with selection of tips shown below, price varies. 

Poles are packaged in cardboard shipping tubes suitable for standard shipment via traditional express and ground carriers.

Call or email for further information. 

Also available are lightweight fiberglass and aluminum poles designed for general purposes with a variety of tip-end attachments.  See TeleScoping Poles.
