Telescoping Towers

Telescoping Aluminum Towers for permanent & temporary use.

ALUMA TOWER COMPANY, INC. has been manufacturing quality-built aluminum towers for over 35 years.   Aluma's telescoping masts are used for communications, military applications, surveillance, wireless data transfer, monitoring and testing.  The antenna tower is ideal for transmitting, receiving, or any application requiring rapid erection of an antenna or instrumentation.

Towers are manufactured from 6063-T832 and 6061-T6 aluminum alloys. The welding process, known as TIG (tungsten inert gas welding), is used throughout. The majority of the hardware is stainless steel.

Telescoping towers are complete with one of Aluma's unique tilting bases. The bases include the H-hinge base and the T-hinge base. Towers are installed on a customer's concrete pad for use as a permanent tower.  For temporary use, an optional base is available for quick, temporary insertion in the ground.

Towers that are comprised of two sections must have the lower section building bracketed or guyed; upper section should be guyed in high wind areas. Three and Four section towers must have the lower section bracketed or guyed and the upper sections guyed.

 See Accessories for details on temporary bases, guy wire kits, electric winches, ball bearing thrust units, and many other available options.

  • Hinge base for tilting application; a non-tilting base can be substituted at no charge.
  • Combo rotor plate with fixed mast adaptor and fixed mast upper plate are standard on all towers. Plastic top bushing is available at no charge upon request.   Optional thrust bearings are also available as an additional accessory.

STANDARD DUTY
The Standard-Duty aluminum crank-up towers are designed for small antennas up to five square feet of antenna surface area and 40lbs. of dead weight. These towers are intended to be bracketed and/or guyed. The uppermost section of these towers will not accept internally mounted rotors. The standard telescoping towers are complete with a 1-1/2 dia. X .125 wall x 5’ long mast, guy ears on each section, heavy-duty building bracket and tilt base. The Standard-Duty tower is ideal to elevate lightweight antennas, sampling gear, wind speed and direction equipment and any other similar instrumentation. The tower easily tilts to allow antenna work and the rapid collection of samples.
