Lattice Towers

A lattice tower or truss tower is a freestanding framework tower. They can be used as electricity transmission towers especially for voltages above 100 kilovolts, as a radio tower (a self-radiating tower or as a carrier for aerials) or as an observation tower. They are constructed using connected steel members usually galvanized for longer life. They are normally assembled on the ground and set in sections by crane. In really hard to reach areas or places with limited access they will be set with a helicopter. Once the structure has been assembled and set it will then be checked for quality (i.e. correct placement, bolt length, tightness etc.). when all this is accomplished you will have a structure ready for transmission lines, cell or radio antennae or whatever the structure was designed for.

Featured Project!

230-500KV Transmission Line

From Lexington to Dooms, Virginia, we worked with Dominion Energy and Irby Construction to assemble and erect legs and extensions of K-frames and upper K-frames with arms and ground peaks. The towers carried 230 and 500 kV lines. We also completed Back bolting and QC of erected towers, removed foundations, and chopped up old towers for scrap. In total, we worked on 180 towers.

Hurricane Maria PR Restoration

On the island of Puerto Rico, we worked with PREPA to rebuild damaged transmission lines and lattice structures all over the island. We restored 13 lines that were assembled and erected using helicopters to fly in structures and men to the structure location.
