C-AFRICA’s designers and construction experts recognize the benefits of adhering to the site grounding and electrical industry standards developed by major manufacturers like Harris and Motorola. We also recognize that sites constructed in strict accordance with grounding standards stand a better chance of surviving weather-related problems than those that have not been constructed according to standards.
A thorough adherence to site development standards will guarantee security, We focus on site security and site hardening processes.
Our tower operators take proactive steps to protect Telecom towers, transmitters and transmission wires from both human and environmental threats.
We built a tower to such rigorous standards, which gives the necessary strength to survive the worst that natural disasters during their life cycles.
We encase tower anchors and bases with heavy steel to prevent the possibility of vital cables being either damaged or cut.
We secure transmitter houses installed in two-way radio sites with reinforced, precast concrete.
We use heavy duty cranes to lower the transmitter buildings onto concrete pads.
Shelters are also designed to meet wind load specifications.
We use Dual HVAC systems to ensure that equipment can be maintained in the event of a single HVAC failure.
The transmitter site’s electrical system is equipped with a power-line conditioner to prevent carrier-current transmissions.
The power line conditioner is sealed and inspected regularly.
We recognize the attraction of transmitter houses to theft and we have put in place systems to strengthen security and protect the transmitters from thefts. We have security cameras to reinforce security.
