Base-Hinge Raise & Lower Column Systems

Our Base-Hinged Columns are manufactured in-house by Olighting using our unique design elements to EN40 standards. Carefully design to ensure smooth operation and precision welded for durability.

These columns can be supplied in either Octagonal or tubular steel forms, depending on aesthetic preference.

Bases are manufactured from heavy duty steel frames which are pre-jigged to make sure that each unit is identically precise. The top sections are independently matched to each base through a stable pin system which make operation safer and good for the long term to allow ground-level maintenance of lighting.

These systems are popular in the UK for sports lighting for pitches, fields and enclosed pitches. Operated by a simple and cost-effective hydraulic system the applications are endless.

Olighting can also create brackets to suit a wide range of different LED or Lamp systems, whatever you need, calculated to match your specifications.

Door openings are made from body material with a specialised saw machine to create snug fitting IP54 and IK10 solution.

All of our columns are made from S235 Grade Steel, manufactured to EN 100025 and hot-dip galvanised to EN ISO 1461.

Available in ranges from 3 to 18 metres and flange mounted. Olighting can also supply all foundation bolts and templates to make installation simple, available at extra cost.
