Tower / Structure Types
   Structure / Mount Types:       
   Your choices are...         
   Concealed / Stealth Structure       Low-impact, attractive antenna support structures used to provide consistent quality wireless coverage without disturbing neighborhood aesthetics.  The antenna structures are concealed and the antenna and support blend into the neighborhood surroundings.  The concealed structures have the outward appearance of a clock tower, cross, flagpole, etc. 
   Fold-over Tower       Fold-over towers bend or articulate at 10-foot level or other interval to allow easier access for the maintenance of meteorological atmospherics, security cameras, lights or other equipment mounted on top of the tower.   
   Guyed Tower       Tower structures using guy wires for support.  Guyed towers are used to support antennas and communication equipment for telecommunications, radio transmissions, cellular applications, PCS, and wireless internet applications 
   Mast / Extender       Masts are often mounted on another tower or building to extend height or for horizontal extension from a tower or pole.  
   Mobile / Tower Trailer       Mobile towers are sometimes available in a tower trailer form, and they often use a telescoping tower that tilts up or folds down.  Mobile towers provide solutions for emergency communications, two-way radio, remote base stations, cell-on-wheels (COW), and other mobile or temporary applications.  
   Monopole       Poles or monopoles are free-standing masts typically with solid cylindrical supports.  Monopoles provide a free-standing tower for lighting, traffic or communication antenna applications.  
   Platform Tower       Towers designed to support a platform for surveillance (military, forest fire towers), recreation (diving, fishing, boat platforms), support of equipment, construction (scaffolds), or operator access.  
   Roof Top Tower       Small mounts or towers designed for attachment to building rooftops. 
   Rotating Towers       Rotating towers or turntables are often used in EMC Compliance testing antennas, with directional antennas and radar antennas. 
   Self-supporting Tower       Self-supporting (free-standing) towers are constructed, welded or frame-bolted structures with a wide base that tapers to the peak.  Self-supporting towers are designed as a universal free-standing solution to a wide range of demanding applications such as standard microware antennas, wireless internet, cellular radio antenna platforms, mobile or LPTV antennas or PCS / GSM radio towers.  
   Telescoping / Crank-up       Telescoping towers are also known as crank-up masts or lift towers.  Telescoping towers provide solutions to emergency communications, two-way radio, remote base stations, and other mobile or temporary applications.  Lift towers also have the ability to elevate a load. 
   Other       Other tower or support structures not listed.

   Your choices are...         
   Communications / Antenna Support       Towers or other support structures for antennas used for AM Broadcast, Two-way, Cellular, CATV, Microwave, FM and TV Broadcast, Wireless Networks or other communication systems. 
   Electrical Power Line / Utility       Tower used to support electrical distribution or transmission power lines. 
   Government / Military       Antennas designed to meet government or military specifications for communications, surveillance, radar or other applications. 
   Lighting       Towers to support illumination lighting for highway, public area, and construction site or airport applications. 
   Lifting       Provide lifting or crane-like material handling capability. 
   Meteorology / Instrument / Sensor       Towers, mounts or stands for support of sensors and instruments for a variety of applications.  One of the largest applications is weather or meteorological measurements such as wind speed, wind direction, temperature, precipitation or humidity. 
   Navigation / Aviation / Traffic       Towers for mounting navigation, direction or lighting aids for aircraft, ships, trucks or automobiles.  Frangibility or ability to collapse or break away on impact can be an important consideration in these tower applications.  Beacon and Loran (Long Range Navigation system) towers are an example of navigation towers. 
   Off-Shore / Oil       Towers for offshore oil platforms or other oil extraction applications.  High durability towers are typically required to withstand hurricane or storm wind loads at sea. 
   Recreational       Towers for diving platforms, ski snow generators, theatrical / concert applications, amusement rides (bungee cord jump stands) or towers (arches, half-towers, T-tops, masts) for recreational or fishing boats. 
   Signage       Towers to support signs for internal plant applications as well as commercial advertising and public information applications. 
   Storage / Water Tank / Silo       Towers used to support storage containers such as water tanks or bulk material silos.  The elevation provides pressure and the ability to distribute the stored material on demand. 
   Surveillance / Camera       Tower or support structure for camera, microphones or other sensors for surveillance purposes by organizations such the CIA, police, plant security, prison guards or forest rangers (fire towers). 
   Wind Turbine       Tower or support structure for wind-driven propellers or turbines. The generated mechanical energy is used to run electrical generators or water pumps in remote regions.  For large wind turbines, a very heavy-duty tower or support is required in order to withstand peak wind loads. 
   Other       Other applications not listed.

   Height / Length Required:       Height of the assembled and erected tower or support structure or the length of a tower section. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum alloys provide high toughness at moderate strength levels, with very good corrosion resistance and less-than-half the density of steel.  With the addition of copper, aluminum alloys can be heat-treated for higher hardness and strength levels. The strength-to-weight ratio, weldability and corrosion resistance makes aluminum alloys a commonly selected material for aircraft and marine applications.  Most aluminum alloys have good availability.  
   Steel - Stainless       Alloys of iron, chrome and nickel and other alloying elements. Stainless is too expensive for most tower applications, but the high corrosion resistance may find application for extensions / masts, mounting hardware, pedestals, tripods or small towers for marine applications.   
   Steel       Carbon and alloy steels have high toughness, strength, and good weldability.  Plain carbon and low-alloy steels have good availability and moderate cost. The structure should be painted or coated to prevent degradation by rust or corrosion.  
   Composite / Plastic       Plastic and pultruded fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials provide an alternative to the more commonly applied materials.  The dielectric and nonreflective nature of some plastics and composites provide an advantage over metal structures in certain antenna applications. Their good electrical insulation characteristics make them safer when used for mounting brackets or cross arms on power line poles or towers.  While more costly, fiberglass reinforced plastics can provide superior strength compared to wood, and reduced maintenance costs compared to wood and some metals. Plastics without reinforcements typically will not have the strength for large tower applications, but they may be suitable for smaller mounts, masts / extensions or stealth-structure facings.  
   Wood       Pressure-treated wood for structural / building applications.  Often used for utility poles or lighting applications. 
   Other       Other materials not listed.
