FAQ General questions

The new LP Classic G2 has been designed to maximize safety and pleasure when dancing. One of the changes is that we made the gap between the pole and the mask as thin as possible. Due to this fact, the installation of the pole must be perfect. If the pole is secured/tightened a little more on one side (the 2 small hex screws on the safety nut) the pole might slightly bend and the mask would be difficult to rise. Please try to relax the pole as much as possible and try to screw the mask up to the end. If that is working that means the thread on the mask is OK. So If this works, lower the mask again and tighten the pole normally but secure those two small hex screws slowly and simultaneously. That will assure the thread is squeezed equally from both sides and assure the narrowness of the pole through the thread. Now the mask should be enabled to be raised till the end. A drop of machine oil on the inside thread of the mask will help a lot.

The cover itself is there to cover the tension system of the pole and by default, it is a not usable area of the pole. It is only meant to be a protective shield to prevent a performer from getting in contact with the mechanical elements used to extend the pole and secure it against unscrewing. The mask is used to cover and protect the thread and fixing elements of the bottom of the pole. It is not meant to be used for gripping and making turns on it since it can get loosen. However, you can hold it or touch it with other parts of the body. Pressing on the cover might cause damage to the cover’s thread and make it hard to screw/unscrew at installation.

Chrome coating normally has Nickel as a base and then chrome as a finish layer which is very thin. People get allergies on nickel in this case. On the other hand, stainless still also contains nickel but it is combined with steel and other elements into new metal. So that means there are fewer particles of nickel exposed to your skin. I cannot ensure you that you will not get an allergic reaction on stainless steel even though we haven’t got any reports on allergies on our poles by now.

The poles are made of different materials. We only use the top quality materials well known in mechanical engineering. For the parts except for the usable surface of the pole, we use carbon steel as a construction material and then different coatings as a protection against corrosion and other influences. The coating is powder brushing, chromium plating, and zinc plating. The anti-slippery rubber on the disc is custom made for Lupit only, it is a custom formula. We wanted to have a durable and grippy rubber that can be cleaned and refreshed in terms of stickiness. By “usable surface” is meant an outer surface of the tube which is used for the dancer to touch, climb and grab. Those are made of different materials: - stainless steel, mirror polished, - chrome finish alloy steel, which is 100% Nickel FREE. LP Chrome poles are allergy-free and 100% chipping free poles with amazing grip. - powder brushed/coated surface over a carbon steel tube - brass which is mirror polished, no other coating is added which is the most wanted surface for the competition and it is IPSF approved. It has to be frequently cleaned and polished to keep the surface shiny but some like the natural oxide layer which provides even better grip.

We can proudly say that 95% of all materials and parts we use are of European origin, which is much more expensive than Asian ones, but we wanted to make sure that the quality is good and that the materials are produced according to all ecological and ethical standards.

Depends on coating: Stainless steel and Chrome poles can be cleaned with a cotton cloth and Nitro diluent 900, or pure alcohol or water and then wiped with dry cotton or microfibre cloth. Powder-coated parts should be cleaned only with pure alcohol or water and then wiped with dry cotton or microfibre cloth. Make sure you do not use glass cleaners, especially if they contain the Ammonium Hydroxide Cleaning Agent Cleaning of the rubber surface on discs is also very important. Use pure alcohol for regular cleaning and nitro diluent 900 for refreshing the surface to be stickier.

How do you clean poles?
Lupit portable home poles can be installed in minutes depends on how skilled is the person. I would say that the average person can do the first installation in 15 min. The next time it will take only 5 minutes. Lupit studio removable or permanent poles are usually installed by a skilled person. We would say that on average, a person can do first pole installation in 20 min but usually, there is more than one so the next pole can be installed in 10-15 min. It all depends on the ceiling, flooring material, and construction. Lupit Stage can be installed in 10-15 minutes depends on how skilled is the person. I would say that the average person can do the first installation in 25 min. The next time only 10-15 minutes.

Lupit home poles have all the tools included except the water level and ladder. Lupit Stage has all the tools needed to be included in the package to install the studio poles, you would need some common tools like an electric or cordless drill, screwdriver, water-level, ladder. The screws, allen key, and plastic inserts for the concrete are included in the package.
The Lupit home pole is designed to be installed without drilling, so no damage to the floor or ceiling is expected. The only limitations are when used on a plaster/ false ceiling. In this case, no one can tell how the ceiling was built and how strong it is. Lupit home bar is a pressure pole, which generates some force on the ceiling during installation. Typically, 80-100 kg is required to ensure an adequate and secure hold on the ceiling/floor. The removable Lupit studio pole requires a fixed, upper part on the ceiling, leaving the floor unaffected. Four screws are required on the ceiling. Lupit studio permanent poles have to be fixed to the ceiling and floor with 4 screws on the ceiling and 4 on the floor. A lupit Stage is a self-standing unit that does not require anything other than a flat floor.
