Retractable Booms

Retractable Boom The TS-Series Retractable Boom is one of the most versatile retractable booms in the industry. Designed for trouble-free operation, the TS-Series Retractable Boom provides safe and easy access to your meteorological instrumentation. The TS-Series Retractable Boom allows your technician to bring the instruments back to the tower so they can reach them without having to climb out on the boom.

The TS-Series Retractable Boom can be configured to accept multiple instruments. We also work with your meteorological equipment suppliers to insure our boom will accommodate a variety of different installation specifications unique to each met equipment manufacturer.

Typically installed on an 18” face tower, the TS-Series Retractable Boom can be adapted to fit most any tower structure. The boom and roller box assembly are made from high-grade aluminum with stainless steel hardware. Rigid 2” square booms coupled with our unique roller box assembly provide a highly stable platform. Four aluminum rollers provide smooth and secure travel along the boom. The boom can be quickly removed from the roller box assembly by simply removing one bolt.

For many years, our TS-Series Retractable Booms have been installed at numerous power generation facilities and military installations throughout the country. The TS-Series Retractable Boom is now becoming increasingly popular in the wind energy industry on small guyed and self-supporting towers, as hub heights have far outreached the capability of the typical tip-up tower.

Today our TS-Series Retractable Booms are being used on wind farms throughout the United States.

Standard boom lengths are 6’, 8’, 10’ and 12’. Longer custom lengths are available upon request.
