Coupling of the hexbeam to your mast
The hex beam comes equipped with a centermost that sticks through the baseplate and out through the bottom resulting in a “stub” on the bottom of the baseplate. This stub is intended for you to use to install the hex beam on your mast. The stub is 8 inches long and has an outside diameter of 1.32 inches (33mm) which is a standard one inch pipe size and is made of Sch 40 6061 T6 aluminum pipe.
Shown to the left is the hexbeam coupled to a customer supplied mast with pipe to pipe clamps. To the right is the hex beam stub inserted into a larger customer supplied mast. This arrangement on the right requires the installation of two cross bolts.
The customer mast can be a push up mast, a tower mast or a short pipe that is inserted into a rotator.
