Broadcasting

Phillystran has over 45 years’ experience of supplying high performance fiber guying systems for AM, FM and communications towers up to 2,000 feet high, operating at powers as high as 2 megawatts. As broadcast towers and antennae technology has been deployed to ever more challenging environments, Phillystran’s non-metallic guying systems provide a clear engineering advantage over traditional steel wire systems.

Phillystran High Performance Tower Guys (HPTG-I) are made from stranded aramid fi bers with up to 1.7 million pounds breaking strength. They eliminate transmission problems associated with EHS (extra high strength) and bridge strand steel wire guying such as Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI), Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), Signal Suppression Array Directional Irregularities Zapping and White-Noise Arcing.

Phillystran HPTG-I guying systems are in use in every climate, from the deserts of Oman to the tundra regions of Greenland. On top of the One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower), HPTG-I guy assemblies are used to support the 400 ft transmission mast - the tallest in the Western Hemisphere and home to a wide variety of broadcast and communications antennas serving the greater New York City area.

Why Phillystran?

PHILLYSTRAN IS AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE CORDAGE INSTITUTE
Phillystran is an active member of the Cordage Institute, and works on the development of international standards, guidelines, test methods and other technical documents for rope and cordage products.
PHILLYSTRAN IS FULLY CERTIFIED ACCORDING TO ISO 9001:2015
Phillystran product quality and customer service are second to none. Phillystran is fully certified according to ISO 9001:2015. Our commitment to innovation is matched by our drive to continually improve quality across the business by controlling product design, inspecting all raw materials, monitoring key elements of the manufacturing process, and conducting final product testing and inspection.
Phillystran guying systems are designed to last for many years
The aramid fiber guy line is protected by a co-polymer polyurethane extruded jacket with excellent weathering and dielectric properties and blended with carbon black pigmentation for maximum UV resistance. The outer jacket sheds moisture thus assuring consistent dielectric properties regardless of the season or climate. With an expected life of 25 years or more, many Phillystran guy line systems have been in place since the early 1970s.

PHILLYSTRAN HPTG-I ARAMID FIBER GUYING SYSTEMS FOR BROADCAST TOWERS AND ANTENNAS

Phillystran High Performance Tower Guys (HPTG-I) aramid fiber guying systems are the results of many years of experience with AM, FM, TV and communications towers up to 2,000 feet high, operating at powers as high as 2 megawatts. HPTG-I is in use in every climate from the deserts of Saudi Arabia to the tundra regions of Greenland. Phillystran HPTG-I guy assemblies are installed atop One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower) to support the 400 ft mast. That structure is the tallest in the Western Hemisphere and will be home to a wide variety of broadcast and communications antennas serving the great New York City area.

HTPG-I aramid fiber guying systems eliminate problems associated with EHS(2) and BS(2) steel guy cables such as:


• ElectroMagnetic Interference (EMI)
• Radio Frequency Interference (RFI)
• Signal Suppression
• Array Directional Irregularities
• Zapping and White-Noise Arcing (associated with ceramic insulators)
