Sandamper

Designed to protect tall towers from structural damage caused by guy galloping, Sandampers protect guy cables from weather-related motion. Gravity pulls on the weight of the Sandamper to move it up and down along the guy cable, interrupting any galloping motion caused by wind conditions or shedding of ice foils.

AR Snubber System

AR Snubber System

Designed for the control of low-frequency galloping of the guy wires used to secure tall broadcast structures, the AR Snubber System diminishes the motion of guy wires and reduces the resulting dramatic structural loading on the tower structure. AR Snubbers have proven highly effective during high winds associated with hurricanes and winter ice storms.
