Safety first through GRP
They all have one thing in common. With their lightweight construction employing fibreglass-reinforced plastic (FRP), they meet the stringent requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and guarantee a high level of passive safety. Thus, in accordance with frangibility requirements, predetermined break points ensure that the masts break without sparking if an aircraft collides with them.
Another protective effect is provided by the slender FRP masts as a result of the manufacturing process: a cavity is created in the pole core for routing of the cables for the technical systems. Almost all poles can be optionally fitted with tilting baseplates to facilitate preventive and corrective maintenance.
This is what GRP masts and towers around the airport look like
