Mast Section

Mast Section

Available in 3m/10ft long, the 412 section is at the heart of the ingenuity of the SBB system. The last section on top of the mast can be cut to reach a specific height.

Légendes:

9 holes per side, spaced at 31cm/12” allow for an easy climb and for attaching various components (guys, solar panels, data logger, booms, etc.)

The 4 corners of the section allow the operation of the sliding pole or the installation of the integrated Fall Arrest device.

Structural bolts ( ¾”) are used to join 2 mast sections

We comply with Transport Canada Standard 621 and US DoT-FAA Advisory Circular AC70/7460-IL. We can also paint sections in Red/Orange and White.

Anchors

Anchors

We can supply both plate anchors

and rock anchors

Both models offer high retention capacity.

Guys

Guys

We use 9/16”/14.3mm guy wires. Depending on the specific needs of the project, guys can be set-up at 3 or 4 azimuths

Automatic bracket for guys

Automatic bracket for guys

Our system allows to quickly connect a guy to an anchor. The higher the tension in the guy, the more the wire will be locked inside the bracket. Once the bracket is in place, tension adjustment of the guy can easily be controlled using the tensioning bolts
