2.1 PACKING, SIT REQUIREMENT AND UNLODING

1. Column sections are co-axially packed inside each other for ease of handing in transport
2. The fixed bracket assembly and accessories are packet in separate containers.
3. The winch is supplied mounted on its mounting bracket ready for bolting into the mast.
4. The equipment required at site will be :
a. A mobile crane of sufficient capacity and lift height.
b. Suitable slings.
c. A quantity of wedges and timber for packing, to suit the number of column section
d. Two pull lift devices with a minimum capacity of 4 tonnes
e. A crowbar, a sledge hammer...
f. A quantity of rubber based grey paint or linseed oil to suit the number of joints.
g. A crew of 4 men are normally required to carry out the assembly and erection, in
addition to the crane crew.
5. Unload the column sections onto the packing on the ground in order of assembly and in line
so that the center of gravity will be adjaccent to the column foundation when assembled,
making due allowance for the joint overlap. This will minimise crane handling when erecting
the column (Figure 2.1).

compatible with the base plate and the fixed bracket dimentions so that both will be clear of
the ground when assembled.
2. Make sure that the base plate is wedge to prevent rotation.
3. Check that the packing under the arranged sections is a minimum of 300mm clear of the end
of the slip joint length ( L ) (Figure 2.2) to allow for column during assembly.

(figure 2.2)

4. Lubrication for the slip joints is provided by rubber based paint or linseed oil applied to the
column sections to be joined as follows (Figure 2.3)
a. The external suface of the lower column section is coated for approximatetely 75% of
the slip joint length from the end of the section.The minimum length of the slip joint is
marked on the male section of the column joint, with red coloured paint.
b. The internal surface of the upper column section is coated for approximately 75% of the
slip joint length leaving the first 25 % of slip joint length clear.

5. To facilitate, the internal surface can be coated while the section is resting on the packing,
prior to slinging to the required assembly height.
6. Do not use oil or grease for assembly lubrication as this may lead to a detrimental appearance
if runs or drips are formed.
7. Sling the section for assembly at its centre of gravity and engage the sections, making sure
that the centre line of the column is correctly aligned in the horizontal and vertical planes.
8. While installing the pull winchs into 2 sides of the column under the close supervision pull
winch will move unanimously to ensure column sections to be fitted synchronously according
to the column axis.(figure 2.4)

(Figure 2.4)

9. During operation perform step. 8 the external surface of the slip joint can be hammered
using a wooden block and a sledge hammer, to assist in achieving a good joint. Do not
hammer directly on the galvanised surface. The length of the slip joint “L” according to
design.
10. Misalignment of the sections for any reason may lead to jamming, which will prevent good
telescoping of the joint any may be difficult to rectify.
11. Compare of theoretical slip joint length with the actual slip joint length, and if necessary
continue to apply pressure as describel in 9 above until at least the minimum nominated
dimension is obtained.
12. Continue assembly process of column step. 3. Always check straight level of the column
sections.
13. When the final section of the column is in plate, the packing must be arrange so that there is
at least 1300mm to enable fitting of the fixed bracket at a later stage.

Part V – ERECTION

5.1 COLUMN FOUNDATIONS

5.2 PROCEDURE FOR ERECTION

5.3 BOLT TORQUE TABLE

5.1 COLUMN FOUNDATIONS

1. The column foundation, supplied by others, must be designed by competent civil engineers to
suit the soil conditions at the location of the column.
2. Before pouring concrete for the foundation it is recommended that templates be used to
ensure that’s the bolts will be correctly centred and vertical. The protruding portion of the
bolts should be coated with grease and protected by a cap.
5.2 PROCEDURE FOR ERECTION

1. Thread nuts over all the anchor bolts so that they will be under the column base plate and
clear of the top of the concrete by approximately 15-20mm.
2. Adjust two pairs of nuts diametrically opposite at 90 degrees so that thay are 15-20mm higher
than the remainder and level with each other. These four nuts will provide a means of
obtaining vertical alignment by adjustment (Figure 5.1)

160
15-20
15-20

(Figure 5.1)

3. The fifting point will be several metres further up the column than the centre of gravity. At
the lifting point a suiteble sling is applied from which two “Pull-lift” or similar divices, one
each side of the column, are arranged with the lower end anchored at the base plate. These
“Pull-Lift” devices are tensioned to avoid a possible seperation of slip joint, and to prevent
the sling from slipping up the column (Figure 5.2)
4. Before lifting the column, mark the base plate and foundation to ensure that the fixed bracket
assembly and lighting array are correctly aligned.
5. If necessary, rotate the column on the packing prior to lifting to facilitate the alignment.

19
(Figure 5.2)
6. When the column is located over the bolts, fit washers and nuts to the anchor bolts. Adjust the
4 nuts on the underside of the base plate which are apaced at 90 degrees and are 15-20mm
above the others, using the weight of the column to facilitate its vertical adjustment
7. When the column is vertically aligned tighten all the nuts under the base plate and the
corresponding nuts above. Apply lock nuts to all bolts. Keep the mast suppended on the crane
until this operation is completed. Tension the nuts as specified on the bolt torque table Page
27.
