Guy Wire Inspections & Maintenance
Guy wires are constantly in motion and under considerable stress. These wire ropes are continuously exposed to all external hostile elements throughout their entire service life. This is why all wire rope and bridge strand manufacturers agree that all maintenance programs should include inspection, lubrication, and proper tensioning every 18-24 months.
Flares & Stacks has designed and offers an efficient and safe manner to professionally inspect, service, and evaluate all guy wires with our remotely operated guy wire climber and automatic oiling system. Modeled after NASA’s guy wire climbing machine, our custom, in house built and designed guy wire maintenance machine climbs each guy wire, allowing our light weight, synthetic lubricant to penetrate throughout the innermost guy wire strands helping to preserve and extend their expected life span. This service is offered for both bridgestrand as well as wire rope.
If your guy wires are past their expiration, Flares and Stacks can safely replace your wires and tension them to recommended specifications.
