The Banner Mast is a designed for fixed display. The pole itself is 3.2mm thick engineering grade 6082 aluminium alloy. The total pole length is 6m with 5.2m showing above the socket. The PVC-U ground socket is strong and 1m long, this ensures maximum stability for the pole. The pole comes supplied with the brackets attached, the pole and socket pre-drilled. When the pole is situated in the ground socket, it is then bolted to the socket in two directions preventing movement and rotation. The pole comes powder coated in grey as standard but can be finished to match a RAL colour for a minimum order qty
The two fibreglass arms hold the banner out so that it can be permanently read, the brackets have the strength to take double sided banners so that they can be read from both sides of the street. We advise that the maxium banner size used on this system should be no more than 80cm x 250cm
The system is designed to withstand high winds, the unique and patented ‘cantilever’ arm and casting design, holds the banner under constant tension. When the wind blows, the force is immediately transferred from the taut banner to the fibreglass arms, which then flex and help dissipate the energy. This all important wind spill factor is crucial in protecting the banner from excessive wear and greatly reduces the forces exerted onto the lamp column.
The system comprises of a pole, ground socket, 2 tempered cast aluminium brackets with an integrated spring loaded tensioning mechanism, and 2 UV treated black fibreglass arms. The universal bracket allows the system to be mounted on almost any type of pole, regardless of shape or surface, using stainless steel geared straps, traditional banding or bolts. The arms slide into the brackets and are held in place by stainless steel set screws; a hitch pin offers an added safety feature. The quality materials eliminate corrosion, discolouration and peeling of paint. The brackets are available in grey, white and black, the arms are in black.
