TIA - TIF WHITE PAPER 001
Wire Rope Climb for Antenna Supporting Structures Guide
|Publication Date:||11 April 2018|
1. Scope and Application
This informative manufacturer white paper is intended to inform the industry on the use of a wire rope safety climb/system in the telecommunications industry. This white paper is only intended to inform and apply to structures that are governed by the ANSI/TIA-222 standard, as adopted by the IBC (International Building Code) and other jurisdictional building codes.
The objective is to provide detailed information applicable to the performance, compatibility testing, installation, inspection, maintenance, and repair of a wire rope safety climb(s) for antenna supporting structures. This document may help provide the structure owner, or the Engineer of Record (EOR), the loading and placement requirements necessary to analyze the wire rope safety climb connection to the structure as well as quantify the number of users who may utilize the wire rope safety climb/system. Information may be provided by the manufacturer in a format defined by this document.
