We Can provide You with Low Priced Tower or Mast Structures for the Radio Amateur and Radio Astronomer Community
Towers and Mast for Radio Enthusiast
A range of freestanding communication towers are available, ranging from small stubs of 3m all the way to 187m. Towers we manufacture are 3 legged, lattice, 4 legged lattice, monopoles, tubular street works, disguised towers like flag poles, etc. See further data sheets for the individual family. For the European market, we utilise Eurocode with the addition of national annex. Other design codes such as TIA can be provided on demand. We perform the structural calculation of towers in-house, or collaborate with recognised external engineers with years of experience in the field of structural tower calculation for offshore and onshore environment.
For many years we have also gained massive experience in structural calculation of towers for demanding environments, such as extremely low temperatures, strong winds, ice thickness and dynamically impacted structures subject to seismic activity.
Most self-supporting communication towers are assembled on the ground and lifted into place in one action using a mobile crane which is a unique feature, saving cost of crane hire. A second, smaller crane/fork-lift or tele-handler, is usually used to off-load the mast from the delivery lorry and to manoeuvre the sections and tower parts in place during assembly. Guy-wire masts can be erected a section at a time with the help of a crane or by using a ‘jib stick’ to hoist the sections into place by aid of a ground based winch. And why not use one of our recommended novel winch systems by LIMPET. Direct mast to LIMPET mechanical interface is available from LIMPET.
