Base-Hinged Column – Manual

Designed for light use at sports grounds, our Octalite base-hinged columns are extremely easy to install and maintain.

Available in various heights up to 16 metres, each column is constructed from three metre octagonal tapered sections that can be erected on site using friction joints and minimal need for plant equipment. Once installed, each column can be lowered and raised by one person using a portable lifting frame – that comes complete with a simple mechanical hand winch.

Manufactured to withstand windspeeds of up to 46 metres per second, the Octalite range is capable of housing various different floodlighting arrays, and each structure is anchored using a primary base plate and four self-colouring bolts for straight forward installation.
