To meet the demand for a medium duty telescopic mast with a short leadtime and economic price point APAC have engineered the THR76 - a lightweight, hand portable, hand raised telescopic mast system, designed and built right here in Sunshine Coast, Queensland. As a local manufacturer, with all components machined locally, APAC -have total control over the supply chain process ensuring on-time delivery, every time.
APAC's THR76 telescopic mast is available either in a three-section (5.6 m), or four-section (7.4 m) model. The off-the-shelf material finish is anodised aluminium, with optional internal plungers to resist lowering before the quick-release locking mechanisms are engaged.
The mast fittings are constructed from Acetal (Polyoxymethylene) engineering-grade plastic. Acetal has creep resistance and is resistant to hydrolysis, strong alkalis and thermo oxidative degradation. Acetal is suitable for use in components where exceptional strength is needed for above average temperature or moisture levels, conditions we often experience here throughout the Asia Pacific region. APAC can provide a more economic but lighter duty design by machining nylon fittings, however is generally discouraged particularly in applications where the mast is exposed to weather.
The use of acetal has been key to ensure the locking mechanisms can handle huge payloads without slippage - of course you'll need to contact us to determine the maximum payload for your specific application. When it comes to mounting your payload, APAC provide a four-stud universal bolt pattern which matches the range of brackets, spigots, and headframes that can be swapped in-out. Whether you're mounting surveillance cameras, Go Pros, radio communications, lighting, or meteorology equipment APAC have a mount to match.
To meet requirements for Australian Defence applications, the mast can be built to meet MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F, AECTP-100, and other STANAG requirements.
With the range of systems available we'd appreciate the opportunity to work with you in providing a custom design or building to match your application. Contact the APAC team today on 1300 952 788.
