Lattice tower
A lattice tower is a framework construction made of steel or aluminum sections. Lattice towers are used for power lines+ of all voltages, and are the most common type for high-voltage transmission lines. Lattice towers are usually made of galvanized steel. Aluminum is used for reduced weight, such as in mountainous areas where structures are placed by helicopter. Aluminum is also used in environments that would be corrosive to steel. The e tra material cost of aluminum towers will be offset by lower installation cost. !esign of aluminum lattice towers is similar to that for steel, but must take into account aluminum"s lower #oung"s modulus+.
