Field Operations: Tower Inspection

Yearly tower inspections can make all the difference in finding small issues before they become larger, more-expensive problems. At Stainless, we recognize that our customers’ broadcast towers are often their single largest investment. We take pride in helping customers protect their tower investments with comprehensive TIA-based visual tower inspection reports. Our team has decades of experience carefully assessing every aspect of tower structures and reporting any observed issues in detail. We are also pleased to lend our expertise in helping customers understand our inspection findings.

Tower Inspection Safety

Stainless focuses on safety in all of our field operations, and tower inspections are no different. We start with detailed planning before any personnel reach the site. We assess past inspection reports and tower drawings to create a safe, rigorous inspection plan. We also take special care to create an RF safety plan to ensure our inspectors know exactly where on the tower might exceed safe RF energy exposure levels. When inspecting primary RF emitters, timing is key, and we coordinate these inspections carefully with the client to minimize downtime or other negative impact.
