Control Towers from Calrose Electric

Calrose's 6'x10' control towers allow operators to be in the right spot to monitor their plant while the equipment is running, whether they are mounted on the plant or installed in a portable control trailer. Our fold down railing system can be set up by one person and provides operators with safe access around the towers.
There are a variety of options available such as wipers and roll shutters for the windows. We also can install the towers in trailers or ship them out to be installed by others.
