LBA Technology Launches A New High Mobility Lightning Mast Kit

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Greenville, NC (PRWEB) January 31, 2014 LBA Technology, Inc., a unit of LBA Group, Inc., announced the successful launch of a new portable lightning mast kit designed to provide effective lightning protection yet be extraordinarily portable. The 38-foot PLP38-6-SP-PK meets these requirements in the form of a high mobility fly-away kit.

“Portable and lightning protection are two things that are difficult to combine effectively, but this latest addition to the PLP38 Series does just that,” said LBA Business Development Specialists Byron Johnson.

LBA recently concluded a lengthy period of research and development to deliver this new addition to the PLP Series of portable lightning masts. One of the critical tasks in the R&D process was successfully putting the unit through wind load stress tests.

The first units have now been delivered to a major aerospace logistics contractor. The 6 and-a-half foot sections met this customer’s unique storage and portability requirements.

LBA Technology’s PLP38 series of portable lightning masts includes models from 14 feet to 38 feet. These units can be easily set up by two men in under an hour. Uses include providing protection for portable satellite systems, communication systems, ground mounted utility equipment, oil production, ammo, flammable storage sites, and depot environments of various types.

These systems provide excellent options for lighting protection in mission critical situations where transportation, set-up and re-deployment of are challenging yet the protection of assets is paramount. The new PLP38-6-SP-PK consists of 6-and-a-half foot sections in a fly-away, compact kit suitable for transport by nearly any means, including small planes and helicopters.

“The new configuration, although slightly more expensive, opens up new deployment possibilities,” added Johnson.
