Section IV


Strength Requirements for All Classes of Lines


45.1       Special Provisions


Where it is impossible to obtain the required transverse strength except by the use of side guys or special structures and it is physically impossible to install them at the location of the transversely weak support, the strength may be supplied by side guying the line at each side of, and as near as practicable to, such weak support with a distance not in excess of 800 feet between the supports so guyed provided that the section of line between the transversely strong structures is weak in regard to transverse loads only, that it is in a straight line and that the strength of the side guyed supports is calculated on the transverse loading of the entire section of line between them.
