What are telecommunication towers?
Telecommunication towers are mainly constructed of concrete or steel poles (or monopoles) from 15m – 35m (49ft – 115ft); steel lattice towers & guyed masts from 20m – 100m (65ft – 328ft) high.
Where high poles and towers are inappropriate for particular areas and the coverage can be achieved at lower levels, the monopole may be constructed to imitate a palm or gum tree. This is a rare occurrence as the majority of sites a chosen in non-sensitive or industrial areas.
In metropolitan or inner city areas where it may not be aesthetically appropriate to construct monopoles or lattice towers, antennas are placed on commercial or community buildings. In these cases antennas are either colour matched or concealed to minimize the visual impact of the antennas.
