 At my last QTH I had a 125' tower located at the edge of the woods . I built a 
set of Anti climb panels.  I Went to the local duct AC Fab shop and had then 
cut me Three 8' X 15" Galvanized 18 ga panels. I then proceeded to drill 1/2 
holes along the 8' length  every 24". on the panels.  I  then cut  three 
Alunimum U channels.  1 in wide 3/4 web if I remember . Two panels were secured 
just with the black UV res, wire ties and the one had the removable panel with 
the channels resting on the cross braces and only secured with 4 a side wire 
 I have also see a ham who used pressure treated 1/2 plywood.  On  two sides he 
 use hose clamps on the Z bar to secure them and the access side his plywood 
was cut wider the Rohn 25 and use double nutted U bolts with saddles on the 
tower and  washers with wing nuts on the out side of the plywood.  There are  
many other alternatives I am sure.
