your Phillystran. Do you put steel guy at the bottom? Are you worried about
brush fires or vandals?
Yes, yes and yes to all the potential problems. Phillystran under
tension is easily cut by a razor knife and a lighter can ignite the PVC jacket
- both really bad ideas.
The other reason to use EHS to the anchor is so that you can use a
Loos tension gauge to put the proper tension on the guy. The Loos won't work
on the oversize Phillystran jacket.
