Self Supporting Welded Towers

Self Supporting Welded (Lattice Poles)

Reduced Visual Impact

Property restrictions, mountainous conditions, or urban applications often require a limited base area structure with minimal visual impact. Machined section connectors insure proper load transfer and “arrow” straight towers. ERI offers self supported towers with solid round, steel legs and inner members. All welded sections are hot-dipped galvanized after fabrication. Transmission line attachment tabs are added as a standard feature to all ERI towers.

ERI’s Self Supporting Welded Towers are recommended where land costs or constraints limit the area available. While self supporting towers typically cost more than guyed towers, the cost differential in land often offsets the added expense.
