We design, fabricate and install bespoke radar towers for a number of customers across the UK, primarily those operating within the defence, meteorological and civil aviation sectors.

From initial conception through site surveys to final design, fabrication and installation, as well as ongoing maintenance, we provide a full turnkey service. What’s more, we don’t rely on ‘off the shelf’ solutions. We work closely with our customers to understand what they need, ensuring that our radar towers are designed and manufactured to their precise requirements.

We have designed, fabricated and installed a number of bespoke radar towers across the UK. Our most recent contract was for a 30m 4-leg tube and angle structure with an internal staircase and a working platform on all four sides at the top of the tower. This unique design can also be adapted to suit 10m, 15m and 20m versions. The top section of the towers will support a cabin where all the electrical components are housed.

We have experienced teams of designers, project managers, steel fabricators, civils and installation teams who will look after every aspect of the project from start to finish, meaning you have greater control from the very start of any project, knowing that you will be working with one supplier for that turnkey solution.

Uses of Radar Towers

Our radar towers offer flexibility in terms of design and allow for upgrades as required. They are hot dip galvanised, a factory controlled metallurgical combination of zinc and steel which provides corrosion resistance in a wide variety of environments. This is particularly important given the extreme weather conditions to which many of these radar towers are subjected.

They also offer excellent stability, wind resistance and ease of access for maintenance, servicing and structural upgrades with, as always, safety of paramount importance when considering the final design.

LARS radar towers support radar systems for air traffic control, search and rescue, weather forecasting, sea and ground surveillance and moving target indication.
