Portable Communication Towers Customized to Meet Your Needs
Aluma is a custom designer of aluminum towers with decades of proven reliable results. We have several different style units that offer unique advantages. Our towers have a wide range of optional accessories to ensure the features and benefits you want for the maximum value of your investment.
Telescopic Unguyed Towers
Our telescopic unguyed towers are self-supporting portable communication systems. These highly mobile communication towers are designed for rapid deployment and are perfect for use following a natural disaster or whenever speed and efficiency in establishing communication is required. We manufacture two versions of these towers with multiple models available.
- TU Series. The TU Series is a cost-effective portable communication system with a 200 lb payload capacity. Self-supported towers can withstand wind speeds up to 50 mph and speeds up to 80 mph when guyed. Customization options are ample, including trailer and building-mounted options.
- T2 Series. T2 Series portable communication towers can handle payloads up to 350 lb and winds up to 70 mph. When secured using the optional guy wire attachments, they can withstand winds up to 90 mph. Maximum tower heights range from 58 ft to 106 ft, providing clear communication over long distances and any terrain.
Open Trailer Towers
Open trailer towers allow for easy transport over the highway or in challenging off-road conditions. Aluma trailers feature a fully welded structural steel chassis that undergoes hot-dip galvanization for added corrosion resistance. Trailer body components are either produced using the same material or made from aircraft-grade aluminum.
All open trailer towers are equipped with an aluminum Weather Guard storage box and the tools necessary for deployment. Typically, our open trailers include tow chains, ball couplers, and breakaway kits. Options such as generator power, advanced SMARTtower™ technology, cable reels, and utility lighting permit a variety of application specific customizations for every need.
Our trailers can be fitted with multiple tower systems, including standard and enhanced guyed models and unguyed options. Some of our self-supporting open trailer models can be set up by two people in 15 minutes or less.
Trailer Tower With Shelters
Cell-on-Wheels (COW) or trailer towers with shelters are the ultimate portable communication system. Shelters are made from the most advanced materials for lasting durability, regardless of where they are deployed. All these systems feature self-supporting towers that are easy to set up and very user friendly.
Aluma trailers with shelters can be paired with a range of towers, including guyed options and models from our T2 and TU unguyed tower lines. Optional accessories, such as generators, radio racks, antenna storage, emergency and telescopic lighting, and HVAC systems are available for a complete customization for every application.
