Use this Cell Tower Inspection app to perform initial and recurring tower inspections and maintenance to ensure safety and extend the service life of self-supporting (SST) or guyed towers. Complete inspections after severe wind, ice storms, or other extreme conditions, at the completion of any major installation or maintenance on the tower, and at one-year maximum intervals for Class III structures.

This checklist allows field technicians to survey telecommunications tower components including structural members, conduit, junction boxes, and controllers, paint, antennas and microwave dishes, guy wires, guy wire hardware (turnbuckles, cable thimbles, etc), and more. It’s important that guy wires are clean and clear of debris, and that guy wire tension is measured regularly to note significant changes and take remedial action when needed.
