Basic Math – How To Find Guy Wire Length

What is a “guy wire”?

It is metal wire that supports the pole or structure on hard angles, dead-ends or whatever the spec calls for! Now how do I find how long the guy wire needs to be, from place on the pole to the anchor point?

This is normally a guess game, we typically will just step it out and cut it super long! (better to much than not enough). 

But you can use math to figure it out! Use the Pythagorean & Theorem: A Squared + B Squared + C Squared to really figure out the length you need!  

Watch this video where I explain and show how this is used out in the field 👇🏼
