Rapidly deployable antenna masts
13 June 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Webb Industries’ Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) is a typically single-user site solution which does not require concrete or any excavation and has a very low environmental impact. “The main advantage of the RDS is the speed with which it can be installed. It takes only 1 to 4 days to erect depending on the size,” says Webb Masts and Towers general manager, Dave Beeming.

The RDS takes only 1 to 4 days to erect, depending on the size, and can be reused, relocated and erected on almost any site, both urban and rural.

He adds that the RDS, designed by Webb’s in-house engineers, can be reused, relocated and erected on almost any site, both urban and rural. “While there are competitive products, ours is unique in terms of its flexibility, user-friendliness and cost-effectiveness,” Beeming claims.

The applications for the RDS are wide and varied. They are used wherever speed is the main requirement and users include GSM operators, the South African Police Services and event organisers for concerts, sports tournaments, political rallies and the like. The structures take up a site footprint no larger than 6 x 6 m, and a crane is not needed to erect them.

Beeming adds that for GSM operators the RDS serves a vital role in giving them time while they wait for a more permanent solution. “A permanent site solution can take months while the bureaucratic administration is completed. This delay can be very costly for the operators. Webb’s RDS, not requiring the same complex licensing procedure, acts as a vital stopgap in a period that the operator would otherwise not be making any revenue,” he says. “Furthermore, it gives an operator a marketing edge in specific locations because of its ability to be fully operational even while waiting for the permanent solution.”

Webb Masts and Towers supplies a wide range of products made to the highest standards. These include tapered and parallel tubular/angle lattice towers, guyed lattice towers, rooftop solutions (penetrating and non-penetrating) and, of course, rapid deployment structures. “We also specialise in custom designing towers and solutions,” concludes Beeming.
