Four and five-in. diameter tilt-up towers are guyed pipe towers, and come with couplers, end fittings, cables, rigging hardware, turnbuckles, ground anchors, and optional pipe sections. All tower components (except pulleys and zinc-plated bolts, nuts, washers) are hot-dip galvanized. The towers come in heights of 64, 85, 106 and 127 ft. The 4-in. tower accomodates ARE110 and AWP-3.6 wind turbines. The 5-in. tower accomodates Proven’s WT2500, Southwest Windpower’s Whisper 500, and Skystream wind turbines. The appropriate tower makes a significant difference in energy production. In general, towers should be installed at such a height that the turbine’s blade tips (in their lowest position) are 30 ft. above all objects (buildings, trees, silos, and hills) within a 500 ft. radius.
