York Hinge 2 Pole

The Abacus York Hinge 2 pole, which is now available from CSP®, is a self-contained raise and lower pole that can be safely operated by a single person without additional equipment such as a winch or counterbalance.

The York Hinge 2 converts a standard fixed column into a raising and lowering pole, which is ideal for use in areas that are inaccessible with bulky equipment, or where there is insufficient space for our standard raise and lower pole to be installed.

Ideal for use in hard to access areas such as bridges or petrochemical platforms where the standard raise and lower column cannot be used.

Specially designed security keys ensure that only authorised personnel are able to unlock and operate the York Hinge. A vandal resistant security bolt locks the hinge securely in place in its upright position.
