Overview

The UT20 is a two-section 7-metre tower. The sections are triangular in cross-section and consist of three aluminium tubes braced by continuous aluminium rod welded in a multiple ‘Z’ pattern. This gives a very low overall weight and either tower can be erected by two people.

Technical Description

The standard tower base consists of three coated mild steel legs approximately 1 m long which are designed to be concreted into a hole 60 cm square and 1 m deep. Roof mounting bases are also available (we recommend that roof mounted towers should be guyed). Both come complete with mountings for standard enclosures (ENC 10/12 and ENC 12/14) and a grounding kit. For particularly severe environmental conditions, an optional guying kit is available which includes anchors for the guy ropes. These also need setting in concrete at specified points relative to the tower base. The towers pivot to the ground to allow maintenance.
