Miscellaneous Attachments

There is a range of paraphernalia relating to towers and in particular dealing with issues that concern RF and other equipment mounted to telecommunication towers. This includes lighting protection systems, special footings, guy wires, brackets and other mounting hardware, tower camouflage/disguises, aircraft warning features etc.

Because masts and towers are located in every imaginable location on earth's surface they experience conditions such as extreme cold and heat, salt spray and high altitudes, destructive winds and lighting strikes, seismic activity like earthquakes, remote deserts to heavily developed CBDs tower attachments must be suited to the same conditions as the towers themselves. Designers are faced with a myriad of challenges that they must overcome to ensure the performance of RF equipment from simple mounting clamps and outdoor boxes to RF shields.
