Pollite supply a complete range of frangible masts for airfield approach lighting; from a single light mast to a five light cross arm with an SFL/Flash Unit. We can also offer custom solutions for complex design challenges.

Manufactured in the UK from glassfibre with a unique monopole design and hollow construction to conceal cables, they are low maintenance and non-corrosive.

All Pollite masts are fully ICAO and FAA approved for frangibility. Masts have also been tested to ensure compliance with deflection, wind speed, UV and salt spray requirements. Their corrosion free design means an expected lifespan of over 30 years, coming with an industry leading 10 year warranty.

All masts come with a light height adjuster to allow for any final adjustments on site.
