T-135 in Puget Sound Washington, USA

Telescopic antenna towers and lightweight antenna masts have been the foundation for Aluma Tower Company, Inc. for 40 years.  We offer tower masts for any application imaginable, including communications, surveillance, wireless data transfer, two-way radio, cell phone, and numerous unique applications.  Our telescopic antenna towers are ideal for transmitting, receiving, and collecting data, specifically when lightweight antenna masts are needed for portability and rapid deployment.  Custom solutions and packages can be designed to meet any and all requirements you may have.

Aluma Tower Company, Inc. proudly offers aluminum guyed towers as an efficient solution to meet any of your lightweight telescopic masts requirements.  These towers require guy wires to be installed to allow usage in high wind conditions.  The lower, outer section can be bracketed to a suitable structure rather than guyed, but all other sections require guying.

T-125 Tower Guyed

Our guyed towers are comprised of 2, 3, or 4 telescoping sections and are constructed using lightweight aluminum, extruded 6061-T6 and drawn 6063-T832 tubing.  Each tower section is hand welded by certified welders using the TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding process.  All towers are rigged to allow the sections to telescope simultaneously, using stainless steel cable and pulleys.

 

Standard Items Included On Telescoping Aluminum Towers 

All of our guyed towers include the following standard features:

  • Tilting bases, either our unique H-type hinge base or T-type tilt base (fixed base can be substituted at no charge).
    • For permanent applications, the tower base is attached to a concrete pad.
    • For temporary applications, an optional temporary base is available for quick, short-term deployment.
  • Building brackets for attachment to a suitable structure against one side of the tower, providing six inches of standoff (numerous others available to suit requirements).
  • Majority of hardware is stainless steel, including cables and pulleys.
  • Zinc-plated hand crank worm gear winch (electric winches available).
  • Welded aluminum guy ears at the top of each section, color-coded to guy wires.
  • Aluminum masts for easy attachment of antennas or instrumentation.
  • Safety stop latch to remove tension on cable and eliminate unwanted retraction.
  • Aluminum and PVC rollers to aid in extension and retraction.


Optional Accessories

  • Electric winches, 12VDC or 115VAC
  • Temporary Mounting Bases with ground stakes
  • Thrust Bearings
  • Custom masts and mast plates

Standard Duty Models: T-125; T-135; T-140; T-145; T-150; T-160; T-175

The standard-duty aluminum telescoping antenna tower is ideal to elevate lightweight telescopic masts, sampling gear, wind speed and directional equipment, and other similar instrumentation. The tower easily tilts to allow antenna work and the rapid collection of samples.

These towers are designed for small antennas with up to five square feet (0.46452m²) of antenna surface area and 50lbs. (22kg) of dead weight in winds up to 70mph (112.65kph). They are intended to be bracketed at 8ft. (2.4384m) or guyed and feature 5ft. (1.5240m) masts with 1½ inch (3.8100cm) diameter and 1/8 inch (0.31750cm) wall, guy ears on each section, heavy-duty building brackets and tilt base. The uppermost section of these standard-duty towers will not accept internally mounted rotors.
