The VMS lightweight support system comprises a common plinth to which posts of varying lengths and configurations can be attached.


The plinth is secured on four foundation studs.

The plinth can be installed without the need for heavy machinery, and can by lifted by two people using the side cleats. It is fixed with four nuts to pre-installed foundation studs.


The post is made of aluminium and is supplied to the required length. Offset configurations can be made to suit specific installations. It is easily installed by hand using a manual hinge fitting, then secured with six bolts to the top of the plinth. For heavier posts a hand operated hydraulic lifting device is available.

Posts are easily erected with hand-operated tools.
