US Patent #9,546,497 B2

Benefits of Link-Plate (US Patent #9,546,497 B2)

• Very low-profile at plate components make installations more aesthetic
• High strength Grade 65 plates provide high component capacity
• Bolt-on solution – eliminates costly and dangerous field welding
• Boltless splice eliminates costly drilling of hundreds of holes at installation
• Boltless splice reduces bolt quantities by the hundreds on typical installations
• Can be used on multi-sided tapered poles and round pipe stepped poles
• Base termination transfers Link-Plate loads directly to foundation – avoiding questionable load transfer through pole shaft or existing base plate
• Intermittent stitch bolting can use designer’s preferred bolt product – (Ajax, Hollo Bolts, Box Bolts, etc..)
• Link-Plate modifications can be easily designed using any commercially available software
• Link-Plate Solution is scalable – can be easily modified or extended on subsequent augmentations
• The Link-Plate Solution is not a proof of concept – it has been used on hundreds of sites

Link-Plate Fabrication


Tower Engineering Solutions can provide Engineering Design Services as needed. The Link-Plate products are also available for direct purchase from our fabricator. With minimal training, internal Engineering Teams can easily design around the Link-Plate product.
