Telecommunication towers, mainly used for GSM purposes, are steel structures, which support telecommunication antennas. Structural designs are made according to the most recent American and European (EIA, EN) standards as well as other requested standards. All steel materials are corrosion protected by hot-dip galvanized coating.
Telecommunication towers are designed and manufactured mainly in 3 categories;
- Self Supporting Towers are used for all telecommunication applications, and comply with almost all types of customer demands. The standard self-supporting towers are angular or tubular with 3 or 4 legs, or monopole towers. Angular towers are mainly 4 leg towers manufactured from Angular profiles. Triangular towers are mainly fabricated with tubular 60° angular or polygonal leg members and angular or tubular bracing members. Monopole Towers are designed in polygonal and circular cross section as a single piece up to 12 meters in length and as multiple pieces.
- Guyed Towers, which mostly require tailor-made solutions, are tall, thin, vertical structures that depend on guy line for stability. The body of the tower can either be a pole, or a lattice structure with 3 or 4 legs, which are generally designed as modules as per loading requirements.
- Roof Top Towers and Poles are usually installed on buildings in dense areas. They are supplied in triangular or square form as penetrating and non-penetrating type rooftop lattice towers varying from 3m to 21 m in height, or poles ranging from 2m to 12m in height. They can be fixed directly to the roof by means of chemical anchoring system, or anchors embedded in a rooftop foundation. Towers can also be designed with supports or as guyed masts.
All towers are delivered with the respective accessories such as ladders, safety climbing systems, platforms, lightning protection and grounding materials, aircraft warning lambs, red-white paint, or as factory painted.
