Tower Erection

Communication tower erection services build communication towers, set up satellite dishes, and install related telecom equipment. They also provide design engineering, structural analysis, and line testing services.
 

APPLICATIONS:

 

Site surveys and evaluations

 

Tower reinforcing and painting

 

Radio frequency (RF) mapping

 

Antenna and line sweeps

 

Our analysis involves the selection of tower styles and materials of construction. Site surveys identify potential tower locations and evaluate the impact of regulatory requirements. Tower reinforcement may involve the replacement of round tension rods with angled components that can increase a tower's loading capabilities. Antenna and line sweeps verify the proper functioning of an antenna and its line feeds. RF mapping identifies places on or around the tower in which personnel may be exposed to excessive levels of RF radiation. Tower painting can prevent corrosion and improve a tower's appearance

Types

Communication tower erection services build many different types of towers

 

Concealed towers are attractive, unobtrusive antenna support structures that are used to provide wireless coverage. Some resemble clock towers or flagpoles

 

Mobile towers may include a telescoping tower that tilts up or folds down. They are suitable for emergency communications, two-way radio, remote base stations, and cell-on-wheels (COW) applications.

 

Communication tower erection services also build roof top towers, self-supporting towers, and telescoping or crank-up towers.

Some communication tower erection services perform acquisition, acceptance, extreme load, and additional load inspections.

Communication tower erection services may also inspect anchor alignments, bolt torques, and tower shaft materials as part of an acceptance inspection. Extreme load inspections are performed after a tower is subjected to extreme loading due to high winds or extreme weather.

Additional load inspections are used to determine whether an existing tower can handle an additional load. Later, communication tower erection services perform periodic inspections to comply with state and local regulations.
