The TOWER WRAP is designed for guyed towers that are severely overstressed. In the past, most tower owners have opted to take down these towers and put up new ones, but with zoning issues and relocating carriers the costs add up quickly. That is where the TOWER WRAP comes in, because it is a reinforcement, the zoning and permitting costs will be minimal compared to those for a new tower. The major benefit of the system is that the tower fits around existing antennas, so there will be no money wasted on taking down lines and antennas only to put them right back up.
