Telescopic Guyed

guyed tower

When lightweight antenna towers are needed for portability and rapid deployment Aluma guyed telescopic antenna towers are the answer for transmitting, receiving, and collecting data. Application-based solutions and customized packages have been the foundation of Aluma Tower Company’s business for 40 years. We offer specific solutions for communications, surveillance, wireless data transfer, two-way radio, cell phone, and many more unique applications.

Aluminum guyed towers are an efficient solution to meet your lightweight telescopic masts requirements. These towers require the installation of guy wires 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.

Standard Features Included with Our Telescoping Aluminum Towers

  • Tilting base: choose from 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 providing six inches of standoff for attachment to a suitable structure against one side of the tower (other brackets available)
  • All tower hardware, including stainless steel rigging, and 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 cables and eliminate unwanted retraction
  • Aluminum rollers to aid in extension and retraction

Optional Accessories

  • Electric winches, 12 VDC or 115 VAC, others may be available upon request

The standard-duty aluminum telescoping antenna tower is ideal to elevate lightweight telescopic masts, sampling gear, wind speed and directional equipment, and 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 5 sq. ft (0.46452 m²) of antenna surface area and 50 lb (22 kg) of weight in winds up to 70 mph (112.65 kph). They are intended to be bracketed at 8 ft (2.4384 m) or guyed.  They feature 5 ft (1.5240 m) masts with 1½ inch (3.8100 cm) OD and 1/8 in (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.
