Title Anticorrosion work on pylons - Protection against falls
Original title Korrosionsschutzarbeiten auf Gittermasten - Schutz gegen Absturz [in German]
Bibliographic information 2000, No.2, p.16-18. Illus.
Abstract Pylons for electrical power lines are exposed to inclement weather conditions and have therefore to be periodically protected against corrosion. Workers have to be protected from falls from heights by appropriate arresting devices. This article describes how to safely perform anticorrosion work on different types of pylons. The anchoring system and rope arrangements are described, as well as their correct use.
