GLIDE PATH TOWER


                                        Applications:

Essential to the Instrument Landing System (ILS) used in aerodromes, you will find Glide Path Antenna Towers. The stiffness requirement of these towers is high to ensure the antennas work properly. Robust steel structures that are not frangible typically fulfill this requirement. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has indicated that frangibility for these structures may be required in the near future.  Exel Composites, a leading manufacturer of products based on composite technology, has developed a unique glass fiber lattice structure. Exel Composites Glide Path Antenna Towers not only meet the demand requirements, but also have many benefits from the features of the composite material.





                                                                                                              Features:

Exel Composites Safety Masts are built out of fiberglass and based on
thorough knowledge of
composite technology. Fiberglass
reinforced composite materials have numerous advantages

compared to conventional materials like metal.


Exel Composites Glide Path Antenna Towers are made according to a
special lattice structure and they have many innovative
technical
details in their construction. 


Even in strong winds and heavy ice loads, there will be
very limited swaying, twisting, or oscillating that could cause
the antenna to fluctuate. The construction strength can
be altered as per requirements.





                                 Advantages:

Composite materials are corrosion-free.

They are neutral to environments that
might be encountered due to geographic location,
such as humidity, salty winds, etc.

Extreme temperatures have no affect, as the antennas perform equally well in tropical climates to the Arctic.
 


There is practically no need for maintenance, as
Exel Composites Glide Path Towers have excellent fatigue resistance properties due to their ingenious design. Therefore, Exel Composites Glide Path Towers are the smart choice when long service lifetime is required.
