Please note that FixMaster Online calculations assume that your site is not more than half way up a steep hill or in a town and bordered by open space, nor surrounded by tall buildings. A slope is considered to form a steep hill if the land rises or falls by more than 50m over 1km, i.e. has more than 5% gradient. Tall buildings would include tower blocks, clock towers in the town, cooling towers etc. within 500m. Bordered by open space in a town means your site in the town is bordered by more than 20m of open land on any side. If any of these conditions apply please contact Redland Technical Solutions.
