What is a lattice steel structure?
Lattice steel structures, or steel structures with a lattice type design are freestanding framework towers, that consist of bolted connections, main structural members and bracing systems. Uses of lattice type steel structures include radio towers, observation towers, electricity transmission towers, pylons, monuments, lighthouses, wind turbines and more. The Eiffel tower is a popular example of a lattice type steel structures, clearly portraying the structural characteristics of a lattice structure. Some advantages of lattice steel structures include:
- Simple formulae are used to determine the capacity of latticed tower members and connections
- Design and construction is relatively easy
- Once the structure is designed, lattice structures using angle sections are very easy to fabricate, offering a quick factory setup
- The ability to adjust the configuration of lattice steel structures, allow the structures to accommodate a number of electric circuits and different types of conductor configurations
- The transparent design of lattice steel structures lessens the visual effect on the landscape and environment
- Steel is 100% recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly construction option
- Steel sections are easy to transport
- Many tasks during the construction phase can be performed parallel, offering quick and flexible erection of the steel structure
- Efficient use of steel material and fast construction times make lattice steel structures cost-effective.
