Guy Wire for Telephone Pole Support
Guy wire has several names, including guy strand, guy rope, guy line and
guy. Various industries use guy wire to secure free-standing systems as
this wire stabilizes many of the world's largest human-made structures.
Those structures include radio towers, windmills and, in the
telecommunications industry, telephone poles.
Most formations require at least three guy strands to secure the object properly. On a telephone pole, each guy wire creates an angle between the vertical pole and the ground. While guyed structures need a larger area for their foundation, they are more cost-effective than most self-supporting structures.
Steel Guy Wire Specifications for Telecommunications
Guy wire must meet your needs for utility pole support, which is why Bekaert
manufactures steel guy wire to your exact specifications. Our production
facilities have incredible flexibility. We can manufacture steel wire in
any shape, with any composition and mechanical characteristics. In an
industry where creating guy wire for telephone poles means a customized
order, we can create a solution strong enough to keep utility poles in
place even during high winds.
Various aspects of your guy wire can change how it performs. Some
specifications you can make when you order guy strands are:
Wires per strand.
Minimum breaking strength.
Minimum coating weight.
Steel Guy Wire for Telecommunications Use
In the telecommunications industry, guy wires stabilize telephone poles —
one end of the guy strand attaches to high points on the pole, and an
anchor attaches the other end to the ground. There are several types of guy anchors, including dead man, grouted, expanding and screw anchors.
Telephone poles have a large portion of their length buried underground.
Most often, guy wires are necessary on dead-end or anchor poles.
Benefits of Steel Guy Wire for Telecommunications
Steel guy wire has several advantages for telecommunications use. One of
the most notable benefits for power lines is our galvanized steel wire's corrosion resistance. Corrosion is
a degrading process that encourages breakage, and weakened guy wires can
snap in high winds or inclement weather. We coat all steel wires with
quality coatings to prevent oxidation. Each of our coatings provides
impressive longevity in the face of exposure.
Our coating options are Class A, Class B and Class C zinc galvanization. We
also have Bezinal® coating available, a unique alloy that falls outside our
range of zinc coatings. At Bekaert, we put our coatings through a rigorous
testing process to ensure corrosion resistance, especially for guy wires
used to support telephone poles. Bezinal® even performs better than pure
zinc galvanization under various conditions.
