The Free Standing 3 Legged Lattice Towers FSLT is easily built manually with a ginpole due to the truss design of the legs. Heights are limited to up to 30m, the tower can have mid level and top level platforms if required.
Designed for difficult location installation in mind and as such, can be installed manually with a gin pole and winch or with the use of a crane.
The suitability of this tower in cyclonic regions is dependent on the wind loading of the installed equipment.
Bracing: K Brace

Australian Radio Towers | Masts and Towers
Australian Radio Towers is one of the only true end to end services providers in this country. Every aspect of the projects we undertake are carried out by true ART employees, not contractors, this includes:
Design (certifcation done by third party), Manufacture (towers, mast, huts and much more), Civil (site pre, foundations, fencing etc etc), Installation (green feild, brown feild, your products and our products), Commissioning & hand over, Maintenance, Installation of guyed lattice masts, free standing towers and all associated equipment, Wind monitoring equipment design, supply and installation, Mast supply and suitability assessment, Periodic maintenance advice and supervision
Maintenance contracts, Structural safety and engineering reports, Tender and price assessment, Sub-contract coordination, On-site contract supervision, Contract variation assessment, Safety inspections and procedure assessment, Accident / incident assessment, Procurement advice
The advantage of this approach is a true end to end service in the Telecommunication space that allows us complete control over everything from design, deployment to HSE. As the managing director/owner of ART, I personally know everyone of our growing workforce and the word ZERO HARM has more meaning to me than just the legal implications, its personal. This means when you engage ART for a project, every person that turns up to you site been employed by me, not some person in the HR department and as the nature of our game is HIGH RISK, I am careful who I employ. The biggest difference between our work and many other industries is that our job is ALWAYS high risk....everyday.
