Quality Surveying Tripods provide sturdy support for your precision
surveying instruments. We have wood, fiberglass, composite, aluminum,
and wood-fiberglass combination surveying tripods to choose from.
Wood Tripods - Of all materials, wood is the most stable and less
susceptible to expansion when exposed to the warming effects of the sun.
Wooden tripods also have excellent vibration damping characteristics.
Aluminum Tripods - Aluminum is completely resistant to conditions of
high humidity. Aluminum tripods are also light-weight, providing
convenience when setups are often changed. Being a metal, aluminum can
expand and contract through temperature changes. To maintain accuracy
aluminum tripods should only be used for setups of short duration such
as no longer than one to two hours.
Fiberglass Tripods - Fiberglass is resistant to the elements and
provides a long lasting tripod. As a tripod, fiberglass material remains
flexible and can deform over a very long setup time.
