Telecommunications towers are radio masts and towers built primarily to hold telecommunications antennas. As such antennas often have a large area and must be precisely pointed out, such towers have to be built so, that they do not much swing in the wind. So very stable structure types like low lattice towers and towers built of reinforced concrete are used in most cases, although also guyed masts are used.
Different types of towers may be built based on requirements. These could be:
- Lattice type (as mentioned above) - where a large number of antennas need to be mounted
- Guyed towers - designed for ease of use and to provide versatility
- Monopole towers - where space, zoning, or weather restrictions apply
- Camouflage towers - where the visual impact of the tower needs to be reduced
- Self-support towers - most flexible and usable for most wireless applications
- Mobile cell towers - used for temporary requirements.
