Communications towers are critical to your business and are an integral part of your company’s assets. Maintaining the structural integrity of your towers is essential to protecting your investment.
The greatest threat to the safety and longevity of a guyed tower is the underground corrosion of the anchors. Understanding and addressing the corrosion risk for each tower guy anchor can maximize its life expectancy and prevent tower failure.
The corrosion risk for each tower can vary based on a variety of factors. Guy anchor steel shafts that are in direct contact with soil need to be assessed on the age of the tower, soil resistivity, soil moisture content, and soil pH.
VIKOR performs a series of specific tests to assess the corrosion risk for each of your towers and develops a plan to protect those towers from the greatest risk with a specialized corrosion management plan.
Once a corrosion assessment is complete and a course of action established, our team installs, high-quality AnchorGuard protection and retrofit or upgrades the anchor protection. AnchorGuard is a pre-engineered solution that allows us to monitor what can’t be seen beneath the soil and proactively monitor the safety of the tower guy anchors.
