Why we use the aerial lashing system

A lot of inexperienced aerial installers use something called an SSB (self support bracket, or commonly referred to in the trade as a knock-on), as this describes how the bracket attaches to the chimney, but this is an insecure installation as they can fall down over time (see image below), often with the bricks still attached to the bracket. At Aerial and Sky Services we only use what is known as a lashing system this is basically a multi-strand wire cable that fits securely around all four corners of the stack where as a 'knock-on' system are simply two pins that are hammered into the mortar line and tightened up.

Insurance companies frown on SSB installs, and if they come down and cause damage to the room, some insurers will not cover damage caused.

L.T.E (Long Term Evolution)

The pictures above show two aerials, one a old type group CD aerial (picture 1) and (picture 2) shows a modern LTE type aerial.

 

The goverment and manufacturers agreed on the colour white to identify a fully digital LTE era compatible aerials. This is identifiable to the customer with the aerial having a white cap on the end of the boom as shown in picture 2 above.


WHATS IS THE DIFFERENCES?

The old group type have a green cap on the aerial boom where as the new types have white caps on the boom. This is to display the aerial is LTE filtered. A CD group aerial is tuned to recieve UHF signals up to channel RF 69 but this is now where the 4G signals are broadcasted, meaning CD aerials are prone to mobile phone interferance. The white cap LTE aerials are tuned not to receieve above RF channel 60. UK DTT (Digital Terrestrial Transmissions) finish at channel RF 59. 4G band is 62 to 69. All our aerials are LTE type.
