Pepro Introduces Its 100 Foot Articulated Lattice Tower
The new tower eliminates the need for climbing, while providing 100 feet of clearance for demanding environments
Pepro LLC, a leading manufacturer of shielded enclosure systems for stationary and mobile applications, has announced the availability of a new 100-foot Articulated Lattice Platform Tower that combines the easy set up and antenna placement of Pepro’s monopole towers with a lattice design that offers far greater height and support for multiple antennas or dishes.
Because the tower features Pepro’s patented articulated design, it can be deployed section-by-section rather than telescoped to its full height. That means antennas can be attached to any section before the tower is raised, or the tower can be lowered easily with the antennas attached, adjusted as needed and restored to full height. At no point do technicians need to climb the tower. Depending on the site location and configuration, the Pepro Lattice Platform Tower will also save customers 30 to 40 percent of the cost versus standard towers.
“Towers are going up at a brisk pace, and that means increased risk and high demand for technicians,” said Kelly Lander, president of Pepro LLC. “Our unique design lets technicians do their work faster and more safely than possible with traditional towers, while providing the height needed for tree canopy clearance, extended range and placement of several antennas or dishes.”
The 100-Foot Lattice Tower has a footprint of 30 x 34 feet, weighs 22,390 lbs. and complies with the TIA-222-G standard. It comes with 12 leveling jacks and 24 Ufer ground pads. It is intended for use with Pepro’s stationary enclosures measuring 8 x 8 feet to 8 x 16 feet.
Pepro's platform tower design reduces installation time, liability, equipment downtime, and cost while increasing safety. A total site, tower and shelter, can be operational within 2 days of installation. Pepro platform towers are designed to eliminate concerns and simplify operations.
