The first pole in this new family of products is the TAGS® Narwhal Pneumatic Combi Pole. The pole consists of 4 sections that can be joined in several configurations. Making it versatile for several applications.
The integrated 2,2 liter, 200bar/2900psi air cylinder is fitted with an automatic valve and can be charged in seconds using any scuba diving tank or scuba compressor. The charge assembly fits both 200bar/2900psi INT or DIN and 300bar/4350psi DIN systems). When all sections are joined a full cylinder allows up to five extensions.
With the telescopic base section fitted the pole extends to 8,5m/28ft (height reach of 10m/32ft on land). The transportation is only 2,5m/8ft. Ideal for urban operations or diving operations with strong currents. A second telescopic section can be fitted on top of the first one. With a lenght of up to 12,5m/41ft and an integrated air cylinder the pole is optimised for diving and swimming operations. It can also be used for urban-, vehicle based- and boat based operations.
If you want an “in between” size we’ve added a rigid section to the package that can be mounted easily to the telescopic base section. In this configuration the pole extends to 10,5m/34ft. The pole is made from aircraft grade aluminium. Shock absorbing elements in between the sections avoid noise when the pole is retracted. The operating controls are extremely easy to use in extreme conditions. There is one handle to extend and another one to retract the pole.
