Conbit Towers specializes in towers and stacks for a variety of industries. Services range from design, procurement, construction, installation, and maintenance to demolition. A particularly specialized service we provide is certifying and maintaining guy-wired structures. This datasheet gives an overview of the available services.
Guy-wired structures achieve their stability through pre-tensioned guy wires. The wires must be made of appropriate materials, should be in good condition, and have the correct pre-tension to keep the structures safe.
Often, clients have limited information on their existing guy-wired structures. They are unaware of the necessary pre-tension in the wires. Conbit Towers measures and inspects such structures on-site, structural analyses the available information, and conducts a reverse-engineering study to determine the intended design configuration.
Based on the outcome of this study, Conbit recommends repair, maintenance, and inspection protocols that enable long-term safety standards certification of the structures.
Based on the inspection protocol, regular inspections need to occur. These are done at various intervals, depending on the guy-wire materials used. A typical schedule includes annually or every three or every five-year inspection. They range from visual inspection to full non-destructive testing (NDT) using electromagnetic NDT technology.
Guy wire inspection may reveal that certain parts of the guy-wired structures are damaged or have suffered wear and tear. One aspect of their services is supplying the necessary replacement parts and installing them on site. If parts cannot be replaced, they will be arranged to be repaired in situ.
Guy-wire structures must be frequently maintained. Maintenance tasks include greasing, tensioning, and painting.
Conbit Towers takes care of all the necessary tasks. They take full-service ownership of your guy-wired structures. Conbit Towers schedule and keep you informed of the next steps whenever necessary. In this way, they regularly update your structures' certification so that you can rely on it to be safe.
