Polar Focus Pole Mount for Loudspeaker Rigging. The heavy duty PM1-17-G is a ‘one size fits most’ Pole Mount product intended for outdoor use. This product grips the pole quite strongly, in contrast to the light duty pole mounts available on the market that attach with thin 16 gauge flexible steel banding. It is primarily used to mount one or two weather rated loudspeakers of the yoke or U-bracket type.
Polar Focus PM1-17-G are designed to remain tightly fastened to the pole while experiencing the torsional loading and high fatigue that all pole mounting systems can expect to be subject to in high winds. In high wind situations, banded systems can experience catastrophic failure with little or no warning. By using high strength 5/16” rigging rated stainless steel chain and galvanized forged turnbuckles that pivot to remain in the plane of actuation, Polar Focus Pole Mounts are better able to withstand fatigue and torsional loads than other mounting systems which use banding.
Any installer can correctly install the system tightly and correctly with minimal hassle when high above the ground. A single pole mount installation on average takes less than 1 man-hour, at location, with all materials and proper tools. The end result is a safe, easy to install system that can save time and money in both the short and long run.
The pole mount grips the pole with 5/16” rigging rated stainless steel chain in high pressure UV rated rubber hose. The chains are tightened by turnbuckle fittings for a solid grip. UV rated adhesive backed rubber is included for the contact surfaces of the pole mount body to the pole. No metal components contact the pole, preserving the finish of the poles, in compliance with the latest pole warranty requirements. The all rubber connection also helps with protecting the loudspeakers from lightning.
The PM1-17-G is most effective on tapered poles, but can be used on cylindrical poles in certain conditions. Easily fits tapered poles from 10” diameter to 25” diameter. Chain and hose kits sold separately depending on pole diameter. Call for larger diameter or non-tapered poles. Standard finish is hot dip galvanized for corrosion resistance. Powder coating in your choice of color is also available as a secondary finish. Normal wind rating is for 60 MPH, but other ratings are available.
