High Mast Lighting

We design systems to make almost anything that operates at a high level more accessible for cleaning, maintenance or to enhance functionality. 

Such applications include high mast lighting in such areas as car parks or railway marshalling yards and high bay lights in factories, hangars or workshops where access can be difficult such as in breweries.

How we do this will depend on the weight, drop and location of the item to be lifted. 

R & L Systems winching gear is incorporated into steel columns to enable lowering of the light fitting to ground level for maintenance.This is particularly advantageous for sports area lighting where it is not possible to gain access with hydraulic platforms.The system has applications in other locations including railway marshalling yards, airfields and car parks. 

Our winching systems incorporate the use of Contact Suspension Units which combine innovative design with robust construction and simple, reliable operation. When the light is in its raised and operating position the Contact Suspension Unit automatically makes the electrical circuits and engages a “mechanical lock”, consequently relieving the winch, pulleys and wire rope from tension. 

Unlocking the unit to lower the light for maintenance automatically breaks the electrical circuits therefore no live cables are lowered with the fitting. The system is operated by a remote self-sustaining hand winch or motorised winch which is connected to the Contact Suspension Unit by a steel wire rope. Pulleys are supplied to carry the wire rope along the desired rope runs. One man sited at the winch position can easily and quickly lower the light for cleaningand maintenance without the need for ladders or scaffolding.

Raising & Lowering Systems are experts in helping employers fulfil their duty of care to employees. All products comply with best practice guidelines by eliminating the need to work from height and ensuring that the suspended load has two means of support.

All systems are tested and certificated to LOLER regulations and our service packages ensure continuation of these compulsory annual checks. Although our systems are most commonly used for lighting fittings such as chandeliers, high and low bay lights and high mast lighting, they can also be used for other items such as menu-boards, artwork and speakers. We are fully accredited to ISO9001, are UVDB (Utilities Vendor Database) registered and Safe Contractor Approved. Our site engineers are registered under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme ensuring good working practices and relationships are established and maintained well beyond the lifespan of the project.


  • The system enables the light fitting to be lowered to ground level on a single wire rope with no trailing electrical cable.
  • The winch system enables the light fitting to be lowered to ground level on a single wire rope with no trailing electrical cable.
  • Columns from 8 to 30 meters in height can be supplied.
  • The Contact Suspension Unit has internal electrical contacts and in the raised position, engages a mechanical lock. 
  • In all cases self sustaining winches are fitted in the column base.
  • We can design a high mast lighting winch system so that nothing is visible once it is raised and in place.


  • Simple manual winches or electrically operated winches may be used.
  • Winches can be power-tool operated or hand cranked.
  • Control can be either wall mounted push buttons, a flying lead style plug in remote or a full radio remote system.
  • Twin or triple multi rope systems can be employed.
