The RTS 36–66 is an expandable metal framework installed at the top of the tower to raise and lower the beacon above obstructions. When installed, the RTS-36-66 expands from 36 inches up to 66 inches with locking points every 6 inches. A person can safely work on the beacon at the retracted 36 inches height. Once completed, a removable hand crank is used to extend the beacon up the full 66 inches height.
This product is zinc plated, which allows the crank up mechanism to function better than the galvanzation process does. However, this zinc coating is not recommended in coastal environments. In coastal environments our Galvanized 36"-66" Manual Expandable Beacon Extension may be more suitable, offering extended durability.
