We do not recommend LP Classic to be used in the studio on competitions. This pole is made of many segments and its structure needs more attention and care. For professional use, we designed LP PRO and LP STUDIO CHAMPION poles which are custom made for different ceiling heights.
This part can only be broken during installation or removal. If the pole is not lifted enough while moving it with LP Cart or the Cart is lowered/removed halfway the pole is trapped in a diagonal position. That means the spring is still producing a lot of force and this flexible rubber part might get damaged.
For maximum performance and durability, you need to choose LP Studio poles. If you would like to convert your studio into a Yoga or aerial or fitness in just minutes, we recommend you our LP PRO poles, which are fast installation removable poles. If you will not remove the poles and you need to have hi-performance studio poles, which are competition poles, we recommend you our LP Studio Champion poles.
LP PRO poles are removable pressure poles, which can be installed and removed in seconds by using LP Cart. Those poles have integrated AVFAS (Automatic Vertical Force Adjustment System), which equalizes the pressure force during the use, and that way increases stability, safety, and spin. LP Studio Champion poles are permanent poles that must be permanently fixed to the floor and ceiling. Those poles are the highest performance poles in our line.
We offer 42 mm and 45 mm poles. 45 mm is a standard competition diameter which also suites most of the hands. Studios often order a mix of poles so dancers with small hands and juniors have better grip.
Yes. Studio poles are often used so we recommend lubrication every 3 months. Follow the instructions.
Mark the correct position of the lower disc and monitor the drifting Clean the lower disc rubber surface with nitro diluent 900 to refresh the stickiness to the floor If necessary increase the tension to the floor by adding 1-2 extension rings to the bottom part.
We recommend the safety distance between the poles between 2,3 and 2,7 m. The safety distance between the pole and the wall we recommend would be min 1,5 m. Send us the floor plan on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you with the layout.
Yes. All the upper mounts of LP Studio poles need to be permanently fixed to the ceiling for safety and performance reasons.
The diameter of the upper mount is 160 mm.
Yes, QL Pro is fully compatible and exchangeable with all versions of lower bearing systems used with LP PRO and LP Studio Champion poles. The replacement takes only a minute.
It depends on your technical skills and room situation. An average person should install an LP Pro pole in 10 – 20 minutes. Every next installation/removal only takes 15 – 20 seconds using LP Cart.
It depends on your technical skills and room situation. An average person should install an LP Pro pole in 15 – 30 minutes. The upper disc is fixed with 4 screws and a lower disc with 4 screws.
If this is LP PRO it means that this is pressure pole. Each pole produces 80-120 kg of the load to the ceiling so it has to be strong and stable. For the LP Studio Champion pole, the upper ceiling mount will need to withstand quite demanding lateral forces so the ceiling will need to hold the screws on the place. It needs to be strong and durable.
Our R&D team can recommend the solution but they will need to have the following information about the beams: - Beam/Ceiling height - Distances between the beams - Shape and dimension of the beams - The material of the beams (steel, wood, concrete, Aluminium…)
LP PRO is also a pressure pole and it was designed for studios to have a possibility to install and take away poles in just a few seconds. This system works on most of the floor-ceiling combinations. The pole must be in a straight vertical position. The water level should be used. Remeasure the ceiling height and check if the pole has been ordered according to this height. If the ceiling is too high extra extension ring should be added on a lower bearing to extend the pole. Sufficient pressure must be applied between the ceiling and the floor. When the pole is just shaken with hands without applying bodyweight, normally, it can be moved. When doing the turns the body weight adds to the spring load and weight of the pole, all that represents the downforce which increases the friction between the floor and rubber on the lower disc. It is important to clean the rubber surface and the floor regularly using cleaning pure alcohol. If that will not help, we will send you 3d stickers which are used for marking the position of the pole and sometimes to prevent movement if the floor is slippery. If the poles are still moving after doing all this, then we recommend using our permanent mount solution.
If this is LP PRO it means that this is pressure pole. Each pole produces 80-120 kg of the load to the ceiling, so it has to be strong and stable. On the other hand, for the LP Studio Champion pole, the upper ceiling mount will need to withstand quite demanding lateral forces, so the ceiling will need to hold the screws on the place. It needs to be strong and durable. So, We do not recommend the installation on plaster or other fake ceilings. The best is to install the pole on concrete or hard wooden ceilings. It is important that the ceiling or flooring is not fragile, too soft or too flexible because the pressure between the ceiling and floor must remain sufficient to ensure safety. If there is no other option than to install the pole on the plaster ceiling we can recommend two ways to do it the first is to reinforce the ceiling from the inside. The plaster (false) ceiling must be opened and reinforced by an expert. Some support elements must be used to reinforce the surface area where the pole is about to be installed. Usually, it is done by using wooden beams and plywood. The second option is only to be used if the false ceiling is already well supported but the plaster would not withstand the pressure of the upper pole. So the 25 mm ( 1 inch ) thick and the size of 1m x 1m plywood should be mounted to the ceiling making sure it is screwed through the plaster directly to the construction elements. In both cases, the ceiling after it is reinforced must withstand a vertical up-force equal to about 120 kg.
