The VerTmax is the ultimate pneumatic solution to the ascending pole. Utilizing patented compressed air technology, the VerTmax is non-pyrotechnic, reusable, and refillable. As the compressed air from the reservoir fills the telescopic pole, each of the segments fill silently, extending the pole up. The operator controls the extended length of the telescopic pole by regulating the flow of air with the reservoir valve. Any vertical increment within the height of the pole is achieved by simply releasing the valve and engaging the hook at the intended target.
The VerTmax comes in standard lengths of 9, 12, and 15 m. Custom lengths are available upon request.
- VerTmax Telescopic Pole Sections are made of 6061-T6 Black Anodized Aircraft Aluminum Tubing
- 2,000 psi / 140 bar service pressure
A single operator can fully extend the VerTmax with grappling hook and tactical ladder, a camera, or an antenna in a matter of seconds, surpassing the performance of traditional wind up poles. The telescopic pole can be extended multiple times from a single charge of compressed air.

The acoustic signature of the VerTmax is minimal as the pole extends, giving the user a covert advantage. Titanium grappling hooks supplied with the VerTmax are dipped in EFEX for sound signature reduction when attaching the hook to your point of entry.
The extended pole is buoyant and may be left alongside the target after deploying the hook and ladder for later collection by a recovery team.
- System Reservoir
The lifting force for the VerTmax comes from 2,000 psi/ 140 bar of compressed air in the system reservoir. The volume of air contained in the reservoir allows multiple lifts from a single charge.
- VerTmax Telescopic Pole Assembly
The pole assemblies are crafted from 6061-T6 Aluminum tubing. A quick coupler at the base of the pole assembly allows for easy attaching to the system reservoir. A range of accessories can be attached to the tip of the VerTmax Pole, including a grappling hook or wireless camera. Each of the pole segments can be removed for servicing or replacement in case of damage.
