Blog Articles > Clark Mast, EP Hydraulics and One Huge Window!

Tue, Jun 27th 2017

Here at Conrad Anderson we are asked to do all sorts of work alongside our the motorhome and caravan installations… last year we were asked by Navtech Radar Ltd to make some modifications to a SWB Mercedes Sprinter.

Navtech Radar Ltd (link is “a world leading innovator and multi-award winning designer and manufacturer of commercially deployed radar solutions” who needed a vehicle with a fast deployable mast for use with multiple radar heads which can be quickly and safely swapped depending on the application.

The original van was fitted out as a welfare vehicle with a table & chairs, drying locker and kitchenette with handwashing, tea making facilities and microwave. During a previous phase of the project we installed the EP Hydraulic Levelling system to allow the Clark Mast to have a levelling and stable base.

During this phase We came up with a roof window solution from Massai4x4 (link which can be fully opened and made to the custom size required to fit the largest radar head through it. During the job we added the 240v hook up point with a Sterling 20A battery charger, 240v change over relay to switch between the hook up and existing Inverter and wall mounted 240v sockets and Ethernet ports.

The Mercedes sprinter roof required some fairly extensive work with cutting the hole for the roof window and the Clark Mast and one of the roof supports were also removed. We covered the area with 6mm aluminium plate, bolted into place in order to stiffen the roof, provide a flat and level surface for the roof window to fit into and a position for the customers equipment to rest before it is fastened to the mast.

The customer was pretty pleased with the outcome, we quite liked it too.
