BlueSky Mast Systems, known for their patented tripod based, sectional mast design, can be packed down into a smaller footprint than traditional telescoping mast and require no additional support structures such as vehicles, trailers or shelters for deployment. All BlueSky Masts utilize interlocking mast sections made from a lightweight, aerospace grade Aluminum alloy that has twice the yield strength of traditional alloys giving it a distinct advantage over composite mast systems.
Things to Consider When Choosing a Mast System
Our mast systems are available in heights ranging from 2M to 15M based on deployment method.
The total weight each system can support based on the model height selected.
Some applications may require a specific mast model, deployment method or maximum height.
