Extremely Stable
The Serapid Telescopic
Mast has been designed for
unsurpassed stability under all
types of conditions.
In addition to the unique pushpull characteristics of the Rigid
Chain - the backbone of the
system – there are multiple
engineered elements, such as
intermediate guides and snugfitting pad bearings, to ensure
safe and reliable lifting. This
gives the lift column a high
static capacity allowing it to
remain stable while holding
a load for indefinite periods.
And when raising or lowering
the load the mast is readily
programmed for precise,
incremental and repeatable
Dual lighting mast.
Stability Package
All components are made of ultralow maintenance materials. The
mast performs both indoors and
out. The mast is refined for each
customer, engineered specifically
for their job.
For applications
where extra stability is
essential our stability
outrigger packages
are available. This
includes expandable
legs with independently
adjustable levelers for
bracing the mast unit
on all sides.

Integration of multiple mast units provides even greater load
capacity. The masts are synchronized via servo technology
and are capable of varying speeds for deployment. The easy
programming allows for multiple stopping positions; that are
precise, incremental and repeatable.
The Serapid Theatrical Mast was
designed with live production
in mind. Working with top
entertainment and amusement
companies, Serapid has
developed solutions for custom
stage prop movement.
The Theatrical Mast offers a compact platform
from which to lift props, lighting, sound, and
other production needs to the height desired
for a given performance.
The smooth, even movement allows for
cameras to be mounted and used without
compromising the picture quality.
Portable and easily moved, the Serapid Mast
can be used on stage during performances,
and is available in many colors.

Serapid’s Rigid Chain Technology
How it works
Each link of the Rigid Chain is specially shaped to fit into the
preceding link like a simple puzzle piece. The links lock rigidly
when force is applied and remain locked until the force is
released. In the locked position, the axes of the links are aligned,
forming a solid and rigid column that can both push and pull.
When unlocked, these links are able to coil into a compact space,
typically a multi-return magazine.
