1-TWA-10-02 45 ft Air Guyed Tower Kit
Southwest Windpower 1-TWA-10-02 45 ft Air Guyed Tower Kit
The Air Breeze 45 ft. Air Guyed Tower kits are Professional Engineer Certified (PE Certified). Each 1-TWA-10-02 tower kit comes with all hardware necessary to install a tower, except guy supports, pipe and cement. All parts bolt or clamp together and no welding is required. Purchase 1-7/8 in. steel tubing from chain link fence supplier. Roof mounts include vibration isolators, wall brace clamps and a safety leash, but do not include pole or lag screws.
In general, the taller the tower, the greater the wind speed and ultimately power production. However, towers are expensive and can easily exceed the cost of the turbine. Safety must be the primary concern when selecting the mounting location. Install Air Breeze so there is no possibility of accidental contact with rotating blades even if it requires installing the wind turbine in a less than ideal location. Safety has precedence over efficiency.
