Depending on the extended height of a mast, guy ropes are frequently employed for stabilisation. The size, shape and weight of the head load to be mounted on the mast also play a determining role in the mast’s stability when subjected to windage. Once we have obtained the required information about the items to be mounted on a mast and the anticipated wind speeds, we are able to provide a deflection chart that will show exactly what amount of movement can be expected. Not all masts require guy ropes, as they are strong enough as a stand-alone structure. We can also fit rotating guying collars to the mast, which allows the guy ropes to remain static as the mast turns. The optimum angle for guy ropes is 60°, and in some instances (for taller masts) a second and third level of guys may be required. This information is identified for each mast in our technical data sheets.
