Questions About Structural Analysis?

The Telecommunications Industry Association’s Structural Standard for Antenna Supporting Structures and Antennas (TIA-222-G) requires that a communication structure be analyzed prior to any modification to the equipment mounted on the structure. These standards are constantly evolving, so consulting with expert telecom structural analysts that are fully up-to-date on all regulations is imperative. Does your tower meet the current structural standards?

If you own a building that supports antenna structures you need to ensure the design takes into account TIA-222 loading in accordance with your state code adoption regulations.
