The Baird VL-4 NPRM is a non-penetrating roof mount used for flat roof type installations for satellite antenna's up to 10’ in diameter and including 2.4M and 3.0M. The VL4 provides a stable base platform and level pole for securely mounting your antenna that is commonly used for TVRO applications, larger VSAT and SCPC installations. Each mount can be configured with different mast pipe O.D. diameters and mast heights to accommodate a wide range of satellite antennas and include integrated ballast trays that accommodate standard concrete block sizes that can be used for ballast. The standard “single tray” ballast tray can be expanded into multiple trays to accommodate additional ballast weight while increasing the mount footprint to support higher wind loading requirements.
Proper mount selection for your satellite antenna is a critical step to safely securing your outdoor equipment for the long term. Baird makes the best antenna mounts and is hands down our go to mount for any satellite installation. Please call us for assistance with any Baird mount for your next installation.
