Slip-splicing several monopole segments together is a common practice used to achieve required tower heights.

Prior to assembling slip joints, it is important to perform a proper inspection of critical components.  This PAN provides procedural material on assembling joints while maintaining ANSI/ASSP A10.48 & ANSI/TIA-322 compliance. Specifically, this PAN explores the following topics:

  • What is a slip splice?
  • Proper sequencing when slip splicing monopole segments
  • Assembly of slip joints
  • What is jacking and why is it necessary?
