Supplied through Industrial Lighting Systems UK Ltd, this revolutionary product is a lighting column incorporating a fully patented, self-contained hinge cartridge allowing maintenance by a single worker at ground level.

The Echalon column is manufactured from re-cycled aluminium, ensuring it is both light weight and strong,  and uses a counter-balance technology to allow it to be raised and lowered by a single operator at ground level – in fact it can be operated with a single finger!

The column is available in 4 and 6 metre heights and is fully customisable, giving installation and maintenance crews’ maximum flexibility in ease of operation.

Further benefits include:

  • Can be used with most lanterns – the hinge can accommodate the vast majority of different lantern weights
  • Cable entry is through the centre of the hinge cartridge, removing the possibility of cable damage when lowering or raising the column
  • Springs are powder coated to extend expected life cycle
  • Anti-vandal door bolts fitted as standard
  • All components replaceable in situ
