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.
