Useful Insights On High Mast Lighting System

High mast lighting system is a type of outdoor lighting that is used for lighting large outdoor spaces such as airports, seaports, highways, sports stadiums and industrial parks. High mast lighting systems use tall poles (typically ranging from 40 feet to 150 feet, depending on the application) with 4 to 16 fixtures mounted on each pole. If you are looking for information on high mast lighting system here are some useful insights.

  1. Powerful lighting: When it comes to providing adequate lighting coverage over a large area, high mast lighting systems are the preferred products. The light fixtures are placed on top of the high mast pole and the light is directed downward. With fewer high-quality tall high mast poles, you get bright and uniform lighting over large areas. Tall high mast poles reduce the number of fixtures required and provide a more cost-effective lighting solution for large outdoor spaces. 

  1. Durability: The high mast poles are usually made of steel or aluminium. They are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions including high winds. Also, the poles are coated with a protective layer of paint or other materials to improve their durability. High mast poles from Utkarsh India are known for their strength and corrosion resistance. For instance, our lighting masts have PU Painting on the galvanised surface of the mast for extra corrosion protection and a better aesthetic appeal. 

Note: A good-quality high mast pole ideally has a lifespan of more than several decades. However, proper maintenance is needed to ensure that the high mast poles last long. 

  • Regular inspections are required to check for any indications of damage or wear.

  • Routine cleanings are necessary to remove any dirt and debris that can lead to corrosion. 

  1. Versatility: There are different types of high mast poles available for different purposes. Some of the common types include: 

  • Street lighting masts: They support lighting fixtures that illuminate public streets and other outdoor areas, such as parks, highways, and parking lots. 

  • Stadium masts: They support lighting and audiovisual equipment in sports stadiums and arenas.

  • Signage masts: They support signage in a variety of settings, including commercial and industrial areas, public spaces and transportation hubs. 

  • ​​Solar masts: Also known as solar light poles, these are tall poles or columns with solar panels and LED  fixtures that are designed to provide outdoor lighting in areas that are not connected to the electrical grid. 

  • CCTV masts: These poles are designed to mount the cameras at a height in order to monitor areas such as a parking lot, building entrance or public space.

  • Flag masts: Made using aluminium or steel, flag masts are designed to display flags or banners. They are essentially lightweight, durable and weather-resistant.


  1. Customisable: Since high mast lighting systems are used to illuminate various kinds of large outdoor areas, they are available in various height ranges. However, they can also be customised for further purposes. Their multifunctionality makes them a popular choice in airports, docks, harbours, highways as well as stadiums and industrial parks.
