AL500 Temporary Tower System
Locally Manufactured (+1 Week)

The AL500 Temporary Tower System is an absolute revolution in portable tower systems. Capable of being built to an unprecedented 18 metre height, the AL500 tripod system allows near-instant height anywhere without the need for geo or soil testing. The bolt-together design means easy shipment to site, and the included winch allows raising and lowering of the tower eliminating the need for tower climbs.

This breathtaking 18 metre deployable lattice tower comprises of three ultra-heavy duty galvanised steel outriggers, a 1.3 metre galvanised base, five 3.1 metre lattice sections, guy wires, and your choice of one metre headframe. The system is ideally deployed using three 0.5 to 1 tonne precast concrete blocks as feet, however a range of options are available to match your application.

APAC's aluminium lattice tower features three upright columns made from 76.4x4.7 CHS with 40x3 CHS lattice welded in between by certified boom welders, providing incredible strength while retaining a lightweight design that can support your technician to climb the full tower height. The three hinge feet are machined from 101.6 mm solid billet steel, providing unmatched strength with precision machining ensuring perfectly distributed load across bolts and galvanised receptacle.

The AL500 Tripod Tower ships from APAC Infrastructure, located in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

Recommended Use

This serviceable mast is incredibly popular in mining and construction where climbing structures can present a safety concern, eliminating the need for an elevated work platform or a certified tower rescue team to perform even simple adjustments. The tower's near-zero deflection design allows the mounting of highly sensitive microwave and CCTV camera systems.

This mast is also ideal for combination with wind turbines, providing high elevation with maximum stability allowing the establishment of temporary power generation at your exploration site, construction office, or hardstand.
