Modular Ground Support Tower capable of lifting 2000kg (4409.24 lb) to a maximum height of 10 metres (32’9.70″) using an electric hoist (not included)

Safety system

Our ground support towers are equipped with a special Zip/Trigger safety system: mast sections have welded metal plates welded to the mast trusses, thanks to which, in the extreme case of cable breakage the safety trigger (in the sleeve block) would automatically slide into the next slot, blocking the load and stopping it from falling (preventing any displacement).


This structure is made out of five reinforced square sections of 400 mm x 400 mm truss (1’3.75″ x 1’3.75″) – Ø 50 tubes x 4 mm thick (1’7.68″ x 0.16″): two 1m sections, one 2m section and two 3m sections.
GUIL trusses are manufactured from extruded aluminium tube (Alloy: EN-AW 6082 T6 according to the safety norm UNE-EN573), are TIG welded (continuous cord) and have a special polished finish for maximum durability and an unbeatable appearance. All sections have a double ladder design ad are fitted with inner braces to reinforce them against bending and deformations. The different sections are joined together by the UTR-05 coupling system, which guarantees maximum safety and strength allowing a fast and easy set-up.

Note: Due to its modular design, these towers can be assembled with different truss configurations. Contact our technical department for further information.

These towers are equipped with a three-sided sleeve block made of aluminium (Alloy: EN-AW 6082 T6) with sixteen reinforced rollers, to ensure it slides up and down the tower smoothly. It is designed to be used with TS520 Supertruss series, please contact our technical department if you want to use another kind of truss.

Heavy duty base of 726 x 726 mm (2’4.58″ x 2’4.28″) manufactured in aluminium (Alloy: EN-AW 6082 T6) and fitted with four heavy duty swivel castors with steel core (Ø 100 mm / 3.94″), for easy handling and manoeuvrability. Base is equipped with four detachable outriggers with telescopic design, provided with four reinforced levellers for a perfect adjustment to all surfaces.



Lifting process

TMD-548 is designed to be used with an electric hoist (not included). This tower is fitted with a hinge system allowing it to be assembled horizontally by laying it on the floor. It can be raised or lowered manually, or to make it easier our BC-TMD Tower Lifting System and an electric hoist can be used. The BC-TMD accessory (sold separately) is fitted to the sleeve block with two diagonal braces which clamp on to the horizontal truss to enable the tower to be raised and lowered safely using an electric hoist.
