Thought some of you might be interested in the following Quote from the
"Valmont Safety and Installation Guidelines". Valmont manufactures Rohn
compatible 25 and 45 series tower sections and is owned by PiRod:
The "who owns whom" is the other way around. Valmont, who acquired tower
component/accessory operation Microflect in 1995 also acquired PiRod in 2001.
Valomont now calls the Microflect/PiRod group Specialty Structures/Engineered
Structures, under the Valmont umbrella of course.
>8) "Do not climb the structure under any circumstances. The structure is
not designed to support a man. Climbing the structure may result in death
serious injury. Climbing the structure will void the warranty".
Aint it wonderful what product liability claims have done to the industry?
