KNOW YOUR MAST

Whether you need to service, repair or replace your existing Clark Mast, it is important that you correctly identify the model you have. There are a couple of ways to do this. We’ll start with the most simple:

Identification Label

AC Detection, aerial mast, aerial mast photography, aerial masts, aircraft aluminum tubing, aircraft grade aluminium, aluminium mast, aluminium masts, aluminum mast, Amateur Radio, antenna base, Antenna Mast, antenna mast pipe, antenna masts, antenna support, antenna tower, antenna towers, Australian assembled, Broadcast camera mast, carbon mast, Clark Masts, clark masts technical services, clarkmasts, Command Centers, communications mast, communications masts, Crash Fire Rescue, Crash Rescue, easy up mast, elevated mast photography, Emergency Vehicle, fast erecting mast, Fast-erecting masts, fiberglass masts, fiberglass poles, field mounted masts, Fireco, Fireco Masts, Ham Radio, ham radio antenna mast, Heat treated aluminium alloy mast, Heavy Duty Mast, High Mast Lighting, hydraulic telescopic mast, Light Mast, light towers, lighting mast, lighting masts, lightweight mast, lightweight masts, Locking Mast, manually extended masts, Mast, mast clamps, mast fitting, mast lights, Mast Mount, mast photography equipment, Mast Pole, mast pneumatic, mast systems, mast tower, Masts, mechanical masts, metal mast, meteorological masts, microwave mast, microwave masts, microwave towers, military antenna mast, military masts, mining communications, mining mast, mining tower, mobile antenna mast, Mobile Command, Mobile Command Center, Mobile Lighting, Night Scan, phone mast, photographic masts, pneumatic antenna mast, Pneumatic Mast, pneumatic masts, pneumatic telescopic mast, pneumatic telescopic masts, pneumatic telescoping mast, pole aerial photography equipment, portable antenna mast, portable light towers, Portable Mast, portable masts, portable telescopic mast, pump up mast, push up mast, radio antenna mast, radio masts, Roof Mast, Roof Mount Antenna, Saber Masts, sectional masts, specialist masts, spiderbeam mast, surveillance mast, surveillance masts, TAC Stick, teklite, telescopic aluminum tubing, telescopic antenna, telescopic antenna mast, telescopic antenna mast, Telescopic Mast, telescopic mast antenna, telescopic mast photography, telescopic masts, telescopic poles, telescoping aluminum mast, telescoping aluminum tubing, telescoping antenna, Telescoping Antenna Mast, telescoping antenna masts, telescoping antenna pole, telescoping antenna tower, telescoping camera mast, telescoping communications mast, telescoping communications pole, telescoping lighting mast, telescoping lighting pole, Telescoping Mast, telescoping mast antenna, telescoping masts, Telescoping Masts, telescoping microwave mast, telescoping microwave pole, telescoping radio mast, telescoping radio pole, telescoping surveillance mast, telescoping surveillance pole, telescoping tower, telescoping towers, Tower Trailer, towers, tripod mast, tv antenna towers, vehicle mounted masts, will burt, will burt mast, Willburt, willburt masts

As seen here, the identification label should be present on your mast’s base tube and contain the following information:

1. Ref. No.     example: 230610

2. Type     example: RTS56-4C

3. Serial No.     example: AM150025

4. Build Year     example: 2016

Providing this information to us will greatly assist in making sure that you receive the right assistance for your product, whether  that be for ordering spare parts, requesting a replacement manual or datasheet, or ordering a new mast. However, this label can be damaged or worn over time, so we can also identify the mast using the following method.

Mast specifications

If you cannot find the identification label, or some information is missing due to wear or damage, we can identify the mast by appearance.

By determining the following four key features of the mast by inspecting it on-site, you can record for us the necessary information we need to identify it.

Find the serial number stamp:

 

The serial number of the mast can be found stamped into or near the aluminium base casting of our masts.

Example formats for the serial number are:

a. Two letters, followed by a string of numbers     example: AM140072 or GK25472

b. One letter, followed by a string of numbers     example: G10864

c. A string of numbers     example: 52403

Measure the base tube diameter:

 

The base tube diameter should be measured in inches, and will appear in increments of half an inch.

A mast may have any half inch base tube diameters from 2.5 inches to 9.0 inches. Some of the most common base tube diameters are:

2.5 inches (63.5mm)

3.0 inches (76.2mm)

4.5 inches (114.3mm)

Count the number of tubes in the mast:

 

To determine how many tube sections the mast has you will need to count how many tubes make up the mast. They include:

a. The base tube, and

b. All the extending sections, including the top tube

The total sum of these is equal to how many sections we deem the mast to have. In the example image left, the mast has four sections.

Picture of the head of the mast:

 

Email or use the below online form to also submit a photo to us of the head of the mast section with all its sections retracted.

This helps us to determine the age of the mast based on the style of fittings and collars present.

While not always necessary, it can be an essential step for identifying some types of masts, especially units older than 10 years from certain model ranges.
