C-AFRICA’s designers and construction experts recognise the benefits of adhering to the site grounding and electrical industry standards developed by major manufacturers like Harris and Motorola. We also recognise 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 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 secure transmitter sites and buildings by following these steps;
We pay attention to details at the sites focusing on cable layout, strict quality control in the installation of equipment and interconnecting cabling. We encase tower anchors and bases with heavy steel to prevent the possibility of vital cables being either damaged or cut.
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.
