|CLARK MASTS PT SERIES PORTABLE MASTS, THE ORIGINAL TELESCOPIC CLARK MASTS PORTABLE MAST WITH 114 MM (4") BASE TUBE|
The Clark Masts PT Series (the first of this series being the PT1) were the very first air operated Clark Masts portable masts to be developed by Alec Clark, and now form part of Clark Masts Phase 2 Series. The early air-operated PT Series telescopic portable masts featured heavy aluminium alloy construction, anodised for corrosion and ware resistance, keyed tube sections enabling the PT portable mast to be turned, adjustable bearing surfaces for long life, 114.3 mm (4") base tubes and a coned ring system for rigidity when fully extended. Today's Clark Masts PT Series portable masts still carry these features plus torsional locking and other improvements. Like all Clark Masts air-operated telescopic portable masts, extension is by low pressure Air Supply, maximum pressure is 1.8 kg/cm3 (22 psi). PT series portable masts can be operated from various air sources, including 12 or 24 volt DC Air Source/Mast Controllers, 230 volt AC Compressors, Petrol Compressors, handpump or even a vehicle's own compressed air supply if available.
From their introduction in the late 1950's the original Clark Masts PT portable masts were immediately attractive to organisations involved in television field strength measurement and for radio/television news reporting vehicles. Today, they are still the first choice for these applications and more, including aerial photography, emergency service communications and radio/cellular site surveying.
The base of each Clark Masts portable mast is fitted with a pressure relief/drain valve and an air inlet connector. Clamp (locking) Collars for semi-permanent erection, even after the air supply has been removed, can be factory fitted as an optional extra. All Clark Masts PT series portable masts are supplied with guy rings and mounting hardware for turning or non-turning applications.
Clark Masts have a wide range of Mounting, Guying and Air Accessories available
for the PT portable mast series, including Vehicle Roof Mounting Trolleys
and field mounting Tripods.
