Our reinforcement program uses American made, high quality steel trusses for all sizes of distribution and transmission poles to ensure the right fit for the job without compromising strength. Reinforcement is a relatively inexpensive option to extend the life of your pole, rather than replacing the entire structure.
“A number of handheld units can take field notes, mark global positioning system locations, store photos and upload the information through central servers to create customer specific records. Few handheld units, however, can analyze multiple drill profiles using a mechanized serviceability algorithm.”
