TIA is a structural standard that defines requirements for antenna support structures to ensure they meet the needs of modern communications systems in a variety of environments. The standard has been in existence for over 60 years and is relied upon by some organizations, including communication service providers, utilities, construction firms, and all levels of government.

It is also relied upon by other standards. and regulatory organizations, such as the International Building Code and OSHA TIA tower inspections are vital to ensure that maintenance and condition assessments are performed at least once every three years for towers with suspended towers and once every five years for self-supporting towers. 

Towers used for important utilities or those that pose an increased risk in the event of failure (Class III structures), towers in coastal areas or corrosive environments, or towers subject to frequent vandalism require a more frequent evaluation and maintenance. Towers should also be evaluated after severe seismic events, wind, and/or ice storms.

The TIA Albul Engineering inspection covers the analysis, design, and criteria of tools and techniques associated with the construction, installation, modification, and maintenance of communications facilities, including measuring tower stresses, turns, and plumpness, as well as providing maintenance recommendations in case of problems.

Inspection crews always perform maintenance and other tasks on site. Such as:

  • Basic repair
  • Rust treatment and prevention
  • Cable tensioning
  • Hardware revision
  • Coaxial cable mapping
  • Fastener mapping
  • Additional special projects

Our team is experienced, equipped, and ready to provide the customized report needed to ensure compliance and proper occupancy for maintenance, from regulatory and third-party audits to facility-wide analysis, from lighting troubleshooting to complete tower mapping.
