What is a steel tower?

A steel tower is a tall structure made of steel, typically used for communication or observation purposes. Steel towers are used for a variety of purposes, including as the main support for antennas used in telecommunications, as observation towers, and as transmission towers for electrical power. Steel towers are typically made of steel lattice frameworks or trusses, and they can be freestanding or guyed, meaning they are supported by cables anchored to the ground. Steel towers can be very tall, with some reaching heights of over 1,000 feet. They are often used in place of other materials, such as wood or concrete, due to their strength and durability.
