Radio mast from Rädlinger Stahlbau for Europoles in Baden Württemberg

The structural steelwork department of the Rädlinger Group secured a special order for itself. Europoles GmbH & Co KG placed an order with Rädlinger for the production of a radio mast. Following completion, the radio mast is 42.5 metres high and has a total weight of around 24 tonnes.

It consists of 6 individual parts, the so-called sections. The sections are each 5.7 to 9.0 metres long and were not assembled to form a tower until they reached their actual location. The individual pieces were fixed together at the ends of the sections with flanged rings. The conically shaped tower tapers from the bottom upwards, i.e. the diameter reduces from 1.60 metres at the ground to 0.95 metres at the tip.  Due to its subsequent function as a radio mast, the dimensional accuracy requirements for the tower were very high.

Work on the order began at the beginning of August. Within less than one month, the tower was completed and then the individual components were delivered at the end of August.

Europoles carried out the assembly work, which had to be done with the help of a helicopter due to the size of the parts.
