Maintenance and Repair of Wireless Communication Towers, Monopoles

 

MATCO provides expert repair for guyed, lattice and tubular communication towers to ensure the safety and reliability of these critical assets. Communication structures are at risk from above and below-grade hazards such as corrosive soils, atmospheric corrosion, installation damage and poor coatings.  

Typical indicators of accelerated corrosion include the appearance of red rust staining, pitting or metal loss and coatings failure.  In addition, below grade guy anchors may be subject to extensive corrosion with no visible indicators.  MATCO offers a comprehensive analysis and repair portfolio to extend the life of your structures.

Our trained technicians are experienced in baroscopic inspections and electrochemical corrosion testing.  Towers can be structurally analyzed and retrofitted with replacement tubes or angle, welded or reinforced plates or even new guy anchors.  Customized cathodic protection solutions can stop the corrosion process and provide additional years of service to your assets.  In addition, MATCO offers custom coating solutions to protect and extend the life of damaged or existing structures.  All repair procedures are performed by NACE certified technicians that have undergone extensive training in steel utility pole, lattice, tower and anchor rod corrosion assessment and mitigation techniques.  MATCO only performs welds to AWS and CWB certifications.  All tower climbing is performed in accordance with OSHA and local regulations.  Non-destructive testing is performed by certified ASNT professionals.
