Telescoping Masts

Announcing Max-Gain Systems, Inc.’s line of heavy duty (1/8 inch thick wall on all tubes … not the thin walled “glorified fishing poles” sold by some) … fiberglass push-up masts! Max-Gain System’s fiberglass telescopic masts provide the perfect platform to raise a multitude of different types of antenna to the required height. They are commonly used for mobile, temporary or even semi-permanent deployment of equipment.

We currently offer eleven versions of our mast kits, from our 50 foot (maximum extended length) model MK-8-HD, to our “most popular” (and our staff’s favorite) model MK-6-HD, to our 10.6 foot model MK-2-Standard. Between these models, we offer a wide range of sizes and combinations ideal for a great many uses! These packages each contain the fiberglass tubes (MK-8 series has 93 inch long tubes, MK-6 series has 72 inch long tubes, MK-4 series has 46.5 inch long tubes, and MK-2 series has 23.25 inch long tubes) plus all sizes of our Quik-Clamps needed for your model, at a package discount price. (Guy rings and guy rope sold separately.) We also offer our 93 and 46.5 inch lengths of fiberglass tube “by-the-piece”, and sell our Quik-Clamps individually, so you can create your own custom mast, perfect for your particular use!

Guy Rings by the Set

We now have custom made guy rings, manufactured specifically for our mast systems! These guy rings are molded from polycarbonate, a material which is non-metallic, non inductive, non-conductive, impervious to UV, and very strong. We have seven sizes available, each made to fit perfectly over our fiberglass tubes of the same size. They will not scar the fiberglass surface. They slip freely on the fiberglass tubes, and rest on top of the “Quik-Clamp” below. (For example, the 3/4 inch size fits on our 3/4 inch OD tube, and will rest on top of our MC-1 Quik-Clamp, which is installed at the top end of the 1 inch OD tube.) Each guy ring has 5 drilled and counter-sunk holes for your guy rope, allowing you to select either 3 point OR 4 point guying! The counter-sunk holes will not cut guy ropes with sharp edges. Smaller two sizes accept guy rope diameter of 3/16 inch maximum. Larger four sizes accept guy rope diameter of ¼ inch maximum. Colors vary. (Our selection.)
