Stainless designs, engineers, details and fabricates communication towers of all types and sizes including guyed towers and self supporting towers for the Broadcast and Communication industries. Since opening our doors 63 years ago, we have been able to combine the industry’s best engineering minds with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities to produce quality, cost effective towers that meet the delivery needs of our customers worldwide. In fact, Stainless has built more than 7,500 towers in over 100 countries.
Often times the first step in changing equipment on a tall tower, is a structural analysis. Stainless has the most significant level of structural engineering expertise in the industry. By providing timely structural analysis, we often help our customers select the most cost effective alternative regarding various loading scenarios for wireless infrastructure.
The Tower is the most conspicuous component in a broadcast transmitter facility and requires more engineering, both civil and structural, than any other element in the supply chain. Stainless engineering draws on decades of real-world experience working with towers in almost every conceivable environment. Our designers use state of the art computer-aided design technology that results in tower designs that perform as expected, without costly delays in deployment.
The professional staff at Stainless applies current engineering standards to ensure that our designs meet customers’ needs. Our engineers continuously review and update our tower designs to meet the most current standards of the American National Standards Institution (ANSI), Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), Electronic Industry Association (EIA) and American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
Our world-class manufacturing facilities, which are certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the American Welding Society (AWS), feature custom-design and computer-controlled equipment dedicated exclusively to the manufacture of communication towers and associated components. Quality control is the key element in Stainless fabrication processes. Careful metallurgical analysis, highly trained certified welders and rigorous testing guarantee our customers the finest quality product.
Doty-Moore Tower Services
Founded by Don Doty and Patrick Moore, Doty Moore has helped pioneer the construction, installation and maintenance of tall towers for the last 18 years. This experience is a powerful advantage in successful completion of large-scale, complex projects such as broadcast towers. As a founding member of the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE), Doty Moore helped establish many of the safety protocols and standards in use today.
Doty Moore has employed more tall tower crews in the United States than any other company. Over half the digital TV antenna systems broadcasting today were installed by Doty Moore Crews. Our accomplishments include work on the most significant broadcast platforms in North America, such as the Empire State Building and the Mt. Sutro Tower in San Francisco, customer care, and industry-leading technical skill in design, engineering, fabrication, construction, installation, maintenance, analysis and modification are at the forefront of what we do. We build the tallest structures in the world under the most difficult conditions imaginable.
Our construction services for tower facilities include staging, tower rigging, foundation construction, transmitter building and utility infrastructure. We maintain specialized hoist, rigging and heavy lift equipment to ensure full range project capability, from the simplest to the most complex.
Our construction and RF specialists will ensure proper installation, compliance and safety. In addition to broadcast services, Doty Moore provides turnkey installation services for microwave and wireless antenna systems, transmission line, waveguides and ice shields.
In some cases, modification of an existing tower is a better solution than building a new one. Strengthening an existing tower is a highly specialized skill and Doty Moore is the industry leader. We maintain more tall tower crews than any other company. Knowledge, scale and capability are what maintain our position as the market leader.
Tower structures are complex engineering projects with demanding maintenance needs. Doty Moore technical services include: tower vertical alignments, antenna inspection/maintenance, antenna electrical inspections, tower inspection, complete lighting systems services, guy wire tensioning, elevator repair and refurbishment and emergency repair.
