With increased use of mobile communications worldwide, cell phone towers are expected to support more antennas and heavier loads that exceed their original design capacity. This requires strengthening of the towers. In many cases these towers are located in congested urban areas where the use of guy wires is not an acceptable support option. A compact strengthening system that can be performed in tight spaces is desirable. The technique we have developed allows us to model and analyze each tower based on various loads including wind, seismic, etc. Our engineers determine the degree of strengthening required at various locations along the height of the tower.

The advantages of this system include:

Higher affordability than alternate methods
Continued operation of tower during retrofit
Results exceeding load requirements
Speedy and responsible implementation
