Industrial security applications fall under a huge umbrella ranging from manufacturing facilities, warehouses, mining operations, distilleries, chemical plants, buildings, and many other groups that require customized solutions to allow ease of maintenance to an array of mounted equipment. Starting with the most fundamental application of lighting and progressing to more technical applications involving surveillance, communication, monitoring, the mounted equipment in these applications all require maintenance at some point. Some equipment demands more rigorous maintenance schedules that require a need for a cost effective solution that limits downtime. Other equipment may need to be located in locations inaccessible for conventional maintenance solutions. A lowering system provides a key components that solves the dilemmas faced by many design engineers in regards to maintenance. Regardless of the height or location chosen, the ability to quickly and easily access the mounted equipment (i.e. lighting, cameras, detectors, antennas, beacons, etc.) for maintenance will make an extreme impact in the overall success of the application.
