PoleMax MP3 Channel Reinforcement
This monopole is located in Morgantown, WV and provides cell coverage for the greater Philadelphia area. This project focused on providing a non-welded shaft solution as well as a base plate upgrade for the modification and placement of new antennas.
Aero Solutions Role:
Aero Solutions provided a design/build solution to bring the tower into TIA compliance with the new antenna loading using non-welded reinforcing elements. Due to the new wind area of the antennas, sections of the monopole were overstressed and required reinforcement using the PoleMax® MP3 channels. Bolted channels were installed symmetrically around the pole from 0 – 109 feet. The base plate upgrade consisted of the installation of 3 new anchor rods with brackets, gussets, foot pads as well as transition stiffeners with bearing plates. Aero Solutions managed the engineering, drawings, material fabrication, installation and closeout of the project.
