High Mast Light Poles for All Applications
High mast light poles are designed to hold multiple light fixtures capable of distributing light over broad areas such as highways and interchanges, sports fields, stadiums, ports, freight terminals, refineries, mining facilities and airport tarmacs. The height provides extensive light coverage while minimizing the quantity of poles. It also enables the poles to be located further away from where the light is required enhancing safety and movement.
When you are working with Access Fixtures, you are working with a leading global manufacturer of high mast poles and other innovative steel structural solutions for high mast lighting, street lighting, wind towers and cell communication towers.
Featuring an engineering team with over 20 years of experience and employing a ISO 9001:2008 registered state-of-the art manufacturing facility equipped with the latest tooling, Access Fixtures is ready to build high mast light pole needs for sports lighting, street lighting, and parking lighting that meet your specific requirements.
High Mast Light Poles Manufacturing and Materials
Access Fixtures high mast light poles are made from American-grade GR 50/55/65 low-silicon content steel.

High Mast Light Poles Options
While there are basic high mast light poles that range in height from 30’ to 240’, there is no such thing as a basic high mast light pole. Every pole must be engineered to meet multiple requirements including functionality, the wind speed in the location, the ground that the high mast pole will be located on, temperature in the area, service requirements for the lights and equipment mounted on the pole and more. Access Fixtures high mast poles are available with many options including the option that you need to make the high mast pole work for you. Here are a few examples.
High Mast Light Pole with System to Raise and Lower the Rack
High Mast Light Pole with Mounting Rack, Platform and Ladder
High Mast Pole with Quick Installation Base
Hinged High Mast Option for Light Poles and/or Wind
High Mast Light Poles Light Fixtures
Access Fixtures high mast lights are designed, engineered, and manufactured to perform. High mast light applications include sports, transportation, mining, research, and even space launches. The applications are endless. For each project Access Fixtures lighting specialists work with you to determine all the requirements for your application. Then, an Access Fixtures lighting engineer will model the lighting in CAD to provide a photometric study, so you know how the lighting will perform before it is installed.
LED luminaire design and optics play a large part in high mast light fixtures. For example, Access Fixtures can design and build lighting for sports facilities such as a high school football field that is dark sky compliant yet meets all the requirements for competitive high school football games. Light trespass can be limited to less than 200’ around the field, enabling a football field to be illuminated with minimal disruption to the quality of life around the field and to the environment.
High Mast Light Pole Method of Access for Service
Light fixtures mounted on high mast poles no longer require service,
such as changing Metal Halide lamps, like years ago. This reduces the
frequency of service at the top of the high mast light pole. LED drivers
can be mounted by the base of the pole so, while issues are rare, the
drivers can be serviced near or on the ground.
