The Hilomast Range of Masts

Hilomast DrawingThe Hilomast has been designed and manufactured for more than 50 years, during this time there has been a continuous policy of improving and upgrading products to meet current demands.

However, before any changes are introduced the effect on existing designs are thoroughly researched and checked. This ensures that we can service and supply parts as required for all previous models.

Apart from the introduction of the NH Series the Mk II range of pneumatic telescopic Hilomasts is a rationalisation of the previous range but with many additional features.

All production processes are carried out in our own purpose designed manufacturing facility in Hampshire and every mast is fully tested to relevant international standards maintaining the high quality and reliability for which our products are renowned.

MKII Series

Broadcast mastsHilomast has long been established as a world leader in pneumatic mast technology and, in addition to providing a supporting mast for mobile or semi-permanent communications systems, is particularly beneficial to those involved in security, surveillance and high level filming or camera work.

The Hilomast Mk II range can be extended up to 30 metres (98ft) by using low pressure air which is supplied either from a compressor or, in the case of smaller masts, from a footpump.

Many applications require a mast which is quick and easy to erect or retract. Hilomasts are designed and robustly constructed from heat treated aluminium alloy to meet these needs and to withstand the demands placed upon them under field conditions, extreme climatic variation or environmental changes.

Standards

The Hilomast range of pneumatic telescopic masts is approved to the rigorous international Mil Std 810E environmental standard for operation and storage, including low pressure (high altitude) operation.
Hilomast believe their range of Mil Std masts offer the widest choice available on the world market with extended heights from 5 to 30 metres and with trailer mounted, transportable and vehicle mounted options.

The investment in Mil Std 810E by South Midlands Communications Group, combined with installation, design and customisation service, has allowed the company to become a major player in the international defence and security communications market.

SMC's capability to design complete communications systems integrating Hilomast has secured major military contracts, offering the establishment of reliable, easy to use long range communications
