Beatty is no longer around (and haven't been for many years). I think they
got their start making windmill towers a long time ago. As I understand it
they were purchased by L&R (LeBlanc and Royal). But they are still
somewhat common to find secondhand in commercial tower yards etc. I have
part of a Beatty tower handbook that shows info on their 10" and 20"
sections, both of which I have had some practical experience.
The 10" stuff requires a lot of guying (every 20' for most situations) but
that could be increased somewhat if it was just used as a radiator.
Anyway, you won't find what you need new, but I sure would be surprised if
there wasn't some available used closer to you. Check out tower
installers "used piles" etc etc. It's not all that rare out here.
