The above picture shows the relative diameters of the aluminium poles we sell.  We do stock 1” masting but do not recommend 6ft lengths for TV aerials or multielement FM/DAB antennas..


Wall thickness :    18 gauge = 1.2mm     16 gauge = 1.6mm    14 gauge = 2.0mm

Also see pole tests, pole recommendations, and our pole lifetime warranty


Note : We only stock seam welded alloy poles, not the weaker extruded type.

9 ft 4 in (overall height) by 1” diameter four section aerial pole, these are often used for caravans or boats. Although these poles are significantly weaker than a one piece 10ft x 1.5” pole it should be noted that if wind conditions dictate you do have the option of only using 2 or 3 of the sections. These poles are not covered by our pole lifetime warranty. There are three sections at 3ft plus a “shortie” top section (at 1ft) to which the aerial can be left attached, thus avoiding the chore of clamping it on each time you want to use it. Comes with 4 detachable clips (available separately) to keep your cable tidy. Pole is seam welded alloy.

Note, the 6.5ft & 10ft cranks (plus the Supercranks) are 1.5” diameter.


The finish on hot dip galvanised poles may vary

The 6 foot cranked pole is not really suitable for satellite dishes (see satellite poles). The 5.5ft crank is OK for a 43cm dish but only in a sheltered location. The 3ft alloy and 6.5ft steel cranked poles are OK for dishes up to 60cm, or larger in sheltered locations.

Supercrank poles are particularly suitable for large roof overhangs, or  for bird problems......

Caravan / Boat :

Caravan Pole (4 piece)

Pole Coupler for 2” Masts   


Zinc plated steel 2" internal diameter x 15" long which is sufficiently strong that the pole would fail before the coupler. This is a heavy duty product for coupling 2” alloy poles together.

The longest mast we can ship at standard carriage is 12ft so this coupler can be utilised to make up a longer pole by joining two together. We would not normally advise coupling two 10ft x 16G poles together. If making up a longer mast we would advise using two 8ft “satellite poles” (which are 14G/2mm), or an 8ft satellite pole and a 10ft x 2” (16G/1.6mm) pole, placing the thicker walled 8ft pole at the bottom. Think Eiffel Tower, it`s stronger at the bottom........

Four piece 9ft 4in pole with cable clips. Reusable cable clips supplied with the 4 piece caravan pole

Whilst we do not recommend their use for mounting TV aerials outside the two loft kits we stock are perfect for mounting an aerial  indoors (or a low windloading FM or DAB dipole outside). If you are unsure which to buy we would advise the purchase of the “L Section” as it can always be cut down to a straight pole if that`s what you end up requiring. The alternative would require exceptionally strong glue to modify the straight one…. The pole is 1" x 18G alloy.



The L section loft kit can also be used to install a diagonal pole !


The straight loft kit is particularly suitable for boat aerial mountings.


The two way surface bracket is “pre galv” steel and its U bolt is zinc plated and has an M6 thread. Some people use these (with large jubilee clips) to attach small items, e.g. CCTV cameras, to lamp posts or similar, multi angle brackets are often used in these installs.

Satellite poles must be rock steady if you are keep the dish focused on that little “geostationary” transmitter 22,000 miles above the Equator. Thus we stock four very strong alloy satellite masts, 5ft x 1.5” x 16G (1.6mm), plus 4ft and 8ft x 2.0” x 14G (2.0mm). These poles are equally suitable as ultra strong aerial poles for particularly large antennas in exposed locations, the 8ft is 2.0mm thick alloy, it weighs over 2Kg !  These poles should be used in conjunction with our T & K brackets and a particularly large satellite dish (using the 2.0” pole) may even need to use two “K”s plus a “T”. In exposed locations I`d consider shortening the pole as well. Think how much wind loading you can get on a 1 metre dish.....


The 6.5ft and 3ft cranked poles (plus the 5ft straight) are suitable for dishes up to 60cm.  Larger dishes may also be OK on these poles provided the location is not too exposed.


Most Sky Zone 1 dishes will fit on a 2" pole (though you will have to use a suitable V bolt), but a few of the oldest ones [fitted with the little "L" pole]  and the Zone 2 dishes will only take 1.25" poles.

3.6m (@ twelve foot) is the longest pole we can normally ship to any address (for standard carriage), but for those requiring even more height we do sell 2” pole couplers.


We can supply 16ft and 20ft x 2.0in x 14G (2.0mm) poles but

they are subject to a £35 carriage charge and are usually

despatched separately so the £35 is for the pole(s) order alone.

Please order these by phone.


16ft x 2.0in x 14G (2.0mm) pole = £41.50


20ft x 2.0in x 14G (2.0mm) pole = £52.00

All offsets on the cranked poles are approximate, if this is critical please phone to check the exact figure.
