These devices normally consist of a floor base (having a low center of mass or large included floor contact area), vertical members (often multiple short sections, sleeved to accommodate or otherwise allow extension to greater heights) and horizontal members for attachment of lighting fixtures or accessories or both.

a. Towers, ground-support structures, lifts, and other devices that use winches (or similar mechanisms) to gain a mechanical lifting advantage;

b. Tripod or other similar lightweight stands;

c. Stands with bases using casters or other wheel assemblies as the primary load-supporting mechanism.

d. Devices that are not ground-supported
