Our portfolio includes a wide variety of guy wire strengths and coatings that achieve the highest performance in any environment or utility application. These applications include power and telecommunication lines, railway signals, towers, radio masts and wind turbines.
Guy wire has several names, including guy strand cable, guy strand wire, power line guy wire, guy rope, guy line and guy. All these titles refer to a tensioned, steel wire that stabilizes many of the largest man-made structures, including:
Guy strand wires function the same way regardless of their application by creating an angle between the vertical structure and the ground. One end connects to a high point on the structure and the other attaches to the ground with an anchor.
Guy wire's high strength-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for securing large structures to the ground or surrounding area. These wires create an angle between the tower and the ground, so they take up space but are more cost-effective when considering initial cost, transportation and installation.
Bekaert manufactures sturdy guy wire that can secure various free-standing structures. These structures include utility poles, radio masts and, in the telecommunications industry, telephone poles.
Steel guy wire comes in a variety of strengths, lengths and wires per strand for use in several applications, including telecommunications and electrical service guy wire. At Bekaert, we offer single-wire strands as well as manufacture guy strand with three, seven or 19 wires per cable.
Stranded steel guy wire is most often used in applications that require high-level strength and stability. Adding more strands to a guy wire increases the strength and stability, so our 19-strand wire is the most robust option.
Bekaert manufactures a wider range of guy strands than any other supplier in North American power utility and telecom markets. Our clients determine specifications like:
Beyond these specifications, you'll want to consider factors like:
Environmental factors will influence the types of coatings you need, while elements like diameter and steel grade will reflect strength requirements. At Bekaert, we take a turnkey approach to your guy wire needs to develop a product that meets your longevity and sustainability requirements.
Besides advanced safety and quality, there are several benefits to securing your utility structures with Bekaert guy wire, including:
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.
