Border Patrol

Telescopic Tower Solutions for Border Patrol

American borders cover thousands of miles over wild terrain, giving the Border Patrol unique equipment requirements. Aluma trailer towers are designed to facilitate maximum level of coverage in these demanding terrains so that the Border Patrol can fulfill its mission.

Aluma delivers custom telescoping tower solutions built for rapid deployment and designed to provide reliable surveillance and communications support anywhere. They can be towed, airlifted by helicopter, flown in cargo aircraft, transported in a shipping container or loaded onto a flatbed truck. Once positioned, just two agents can set up any of our systems in under 15 minutes.

Our Border Control Trailer Tower Systems

Our border security towers can handle severe weather conditions. We manufacture all of our equipment using high-grade materials that have a proven reputation for withstanding the element extremes of rugged country. Every solution is fully customizable for application focused reliability. We can coat the system with military-grade CARC to add camouflage, decrease detectability in the field, and improve chemical resistance.
