The Rota is designed to be a multi-use, base-hinged column. Common applications include lighting, CCTV and weather analysis equipment.

The Rota raising and lowering system comprises a spring-load dampening device, which enables the raising and lowering of the column in a controlled manner, resulting in access to the light at ground level, within seconds. The device also houses the key to access the door and to remove the Rei-lux anti-vandal screw which allows the lowering of the pole.

The Rota has been designed with ease of shipment and installation in mind. The base can be detached from the shaft section (enabling manual handling of the separate sections).

The Rota design continues with the use of our very successful Rei-Lux anti-vandal arrangement with over 8 years of use without a single report of unauthorised entry!


Corrosion Protection

Base hinged columns are more prone to corrosion issues at the hinge than mid-hinged counterparts, however the Rota hinged assembly is protected ensuring a weather-resistant long life.
