Conbit has developed a unique tower reinforcement solution for lattice towers: Latics.

This add-on reinforcement structure provides a 35% increase in load-bearing capacity to existing telecom towers.

 

The Latics consists of 4 elements: bottom connection, middle connection, tension bars and top connection.

 

Using Latics for tower reinforcement has the following benefits:

  • Building a new tower is not necessary.
  • There is no network downtime.
  • Lead and assembly times are minimal.
  • No welding is necessary, because all components are clamped and bolted.
  • The space for new antennas and radio technologies is considerably increased.
  • Due to low costs and high rental yield, using Latics is economically attractive.
  • Because no crane is needed and assembly is manual, roadblocks are avoided.
  • The Latics telecom tower reinforcement is barely visible. The design is so elegant that the additional structures are hardly noticeable
