Self Supporting Antenna Towers

Aluminum telescoping masts without the need for guy wires 

weofferyouaSelf 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 Tower Company, Inc. has developed simple, cost-effective designs.  We offer unguyed towers as an affordable solution when guy wires are simply not an option.

Testing the Aluminum Telescopic Mast

Eglin Air Force Base Test and Evaluation has raised and lowered our unguyed slide bar tower over 5000 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 100 ft 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.
