How does it function?

  • A degraded wooden pole is identified by means of NDT testing.
  • Depending on the classification and pole size a suitable class stub is selected.
  • The stub is placed perpendicular to the line direction and anchored by means of grouted ground anchors.
  • Once the anchors have been tested to a Proof load (80kN) the stub brackets are mounted and then fastened.
