We produce carbon fiber masts, installed flush with the bridge inside a waterproof housing and integrated into the structure. When closed, the mast remains completely hidden under the level of the bridge, while when open it can withstand any weather condition without the use of stays. Telescopic masts are supplied as ready-to-use  products, with an electrical panel and a hydraulic unit. The use of carbon fiber makes them light, with a modern and pleasant design.

Each AMS telescopic light mast is completely designed and tailored to meet the customer's requirements.
