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?
