ROHN BPC55G Plate for Concrete Pier Tower Placement
The BPC55G uses a 3/4" x 12" pier pin to align the plate to the slab (Separate Item). This Rohn Base Plate allows the ROHN 55G Tower to be Mounted onto an existing or new Concrete Pier, but Cannot be Used as a Self Supporting Base Plate (none exists for the 55G, see R-SB55G). This Tower Base uses double bolted joints which are proven to be the best method of joining tower sections for sturdiness and dependability. The 55G tower can be used guyed, self-supporting or bracketed configurations according to specifications in the ROHN catalog. As a guyed structure, it can rise to a maximum of 400 feet. Self-supporting and bracketed heights depend on loading and are also specified in the ROHN catalog (see Footer links below).
The Pier Pin as utilized with this Concrete Base Plate is not really a structural load member, but simply a means of fixating the position of the base Plate as to prevent lateral movement during and after Tower Installation. Consult an Engineer for various substitution options. Hole appearing in corner of plate can be utilized for Ground Rod Location.
