Telescopic Unguyed

T2-100UG tower Tan color extended

Aluminum telescoping masts without the need for guy wires 

Self-supporting antenna towers, or telescopic unguyed towers, have become more desirable in recent years due to the need for rapid deployment, urban incidents, and quicker mobility, especially when guy wire installations are not feasible.  With this increased demand for aluminum telescoping masts without guy wires, Aluma has developed simple, cost-effective designs.  We offer unguyed towers as an affordable solution when guy wires are simply not an option.

Self-Supporting Antenna Tower

Aluma offers unguyed, self-supporting antenna towers in two versions that can be a free standing antenna mast or coupled to a trailer for mobile telescopic masts.  These towers are our value-driven TU series towers and our stout T2 series towers.

Testing the Aluminum Telescopic Mast

Major Air Force Base Test and Evaluation has raised and lowered our unguyed slide bar tower over 5,000 times.  Minimal maintenance required a cable change every 1,000 repetitions and a pulley change every 2,000 repetitions.  This dependability has allowed our T2-100UG model unguyed tower to quickly become a best-seller in the 100ft. tower category.  It makes an ideal tower as a trailer mounted mast to make a cell tower trailer.  It is also popular with our SMART technology to provide a computer controlled antenna system.

Please check each tower spec sheet to find which the appropriate option for your application. Please contact us for details.
