The SYSTEM 50 lightweight search and rescue mast is ideal for the rapid deployment of  portable lighting, communications, monitoring and perimeter control equipment. Set up and recovered in minutes with minimum personnel, the mast contains no moving parts to jam, freeze or that need maintenance.  Weather resistant and recoverable even when iced up, the mast maintains operability in the harshest environments. A Rolatube mast has exceptionally low packed volume. Our complete SYSTEM 50 portable mast system packs down to 20cm x 33cm x 20cm (8″ x 13″ x 8″approx.) and weighs from just 2.0kg (4.4lb)*.

The SYSTEM 50 mast range has been specifically designed to increase the response capability of organisations such as the Police, Fire, Search and Rescue, and NGOs by providing a range of equipment which minimises packed volume, weight and complexity. Available in two heights to match operational requirements, the mast system is supplied with everything you need for set up. The mast’s top cap includes a 30mm socket for mounting response kit such as radio and data antennas, portable lighting, cameras or sensors. The Rolatube mast system is supported by a range of accessories for attaching top loads and providing additional setup options.

The SYSTEM 50 lightweight search and rescue mast is manufactured using our unique rollable composite to provide reliable maintenance free operation over its lifetime. Uniquely, the mast body incorporates a tough, weatherproof cover which is available in a range of colours enabling the mast to be either easily identifiable or blend into to its environment as required.
