Structural Resiliency Solution

2.28.22 Upgrade and Extra Header1

Upgrade Wood Pole Capacity

Thousands of poles in service today, although adequate at the time of installation, can no longer safely carry the loads they are required to support. The addition of new distribution lines, telecommunications equipment, and broadband infrastructure has increased loads beyond the capabilities originally intended, compromising the structural resiliencyTM, reliability, and safety of poles across North America.  

Upgrade and Restore Wood Poles

When bending loads are applied to a reinforced pole, they are transferred to the truss. The truss allows the bending loads to effectively bypass the decayed or damaged groundline area of the pole, transferring the loads to a sound wood foundation below ground.
