ARE Ballasted Foundations & Self-Raising Poles

Simple. Fast. Patented. No Concrete. No Crane. Just Dirt.

Our Patented Ballasted Foundations simplify installations, especially in steep or inaccessible locations, because they can use local dirt for ballast. Our self-raising monopoles reduce expense and installation time because many can be installed without cranes.
