Abstract

A tower assembly (200) for use with a modular tower (102) is provided. The tower assembly includes a plurality of assembly panels (202) each including a pair of opposing circumferential edges (206, 208), and, a plurality of connectors (214) for use in coupling adjacent assembly panels of the plurality of assembly panels to one another, each connector of the plurality of connectors including an outer flange (302), an inner flange (304), and a spacer (306) extending therebetween, the outer flange is spaced a distance from the inner flange such that a first slot (308) and a second slot (310) are defined between the outer and inner flanges, each of the first and the second slots is sized to receive one of the assembly panel circumferential edges therein to enable the adjacent assembly panels to be coupled to one another.
