DOWNS, Kan. – Remus Tower Service has unveiled the RTS 36-66 Expandable Beacon Extension.
According to a release, President and founder of Remus Tower Service Jared Remus designed the RTS 36-66 to address regulation changes with beacon location compliance, including prohibiting the tower beacon to be located behind the antenna surrounding the top of the tower and an OSHA act preventing work on an object 36-inches above the structure.
The RTS 36-66 is an expandable metal framework, made with zinc plated steel, installed at the top of the tower to raise and lower beacon above obstructions. The RTS 36-66 expands from 36-inches to 66-inches with locking points every 6-inches. A small removable hand crank is used to extend the beacon to its full height. The frame features engineered gussets to reduce weight while maintaining structural integrity.
