Installation Drawing and Parts List

Anchor Shaft Corrosion Protection Systems

To protect your guyed tower, we recommend an anchor shaft excavation inspection for all guyed towers which are more than a few years old if they have not had a corrosion protection system. (CPS). Since 99% of anchor shaft corrosion & shaft failures normally occurs in the lowest 1′ of the anchor shaft, it is prudent to carefully excavate & inspect the entire length of each anchor shaft. Installing our high quality Cathodic Protection System (CPS) ensures the safety, security & life expectancy to your guy wire tower structures. Our cathodic protection systems have proven they can last over 30 years when used in conjunction with a resilient anchor shaft protective coating.

Guy Anchor Shafts

GUY ANCHOR SHAFTS

- Basic design use installed the base of an anchor shaft in a suitable buried concrete foundation to support the combined tensions of multiple stranded guy wires which in turn supports guy wire type towers.
