Towers for telecommunication or antennas can be stabilized using FibreMax lightweight precision guy cables; ease of handling, non corrosive properties and the lack of electrical conduction make them ideal for these applications. Antenna guy cables from FibreMax are mainly produced with aramid fibres. Aramid fibres have excellent dielectric properties and very low-to-zero creep properties which make them an ideal solution for telecommunication tower guys. Aramid guy cables have a low weight compared to steel (up to 90% less) which creates less tension in the supported tower thus enabling the use of more transmitters.
Problems associated with steel wire rope will be eliminated:
- Signal suppression
- No electromagnetic interference (EMI)
- Radio frequency interference (RFI
- Corrosion; aramid guy cables are maintenance free
- Easy installation
- Lack of construction stretch eliminates re-tensioning
