Polesaver 20 Years of expertise protecting wood in ground contact

• Are you looking for large scale reductions in maintenance and replacement costs of your power poles?
• Are you looking to improves safety and limit potential liability?
• Are you looking to reduces outages and save on compensation claims?

If you answer ‘yes’ (or even ‘maybe’) to any of the above questions, then please read on.

Power Poles

Typically being made of wood has one major disadvantage: it rots through and breaks off at ground level whilst the rest of the pole is still in good condition. Polesaver ground line barrier sleeves prevent ground line rot. They typically double the life of your poles, saving you time, money and hassle whilst helping you reduce outages and the dangers associated with pole failures. Not to mention potential costly litigation.

Are your poles made of wood?

Wooden power poles are a common feature in power distribution the world over, low in cost, lightweight, and strong they are an excellent means of supporting overhead power lines.

Traditional preservative treatment of wooden power poles imparts uniform protection along the length of the power pole but unfortunately the rate of attack from decaying organisms is anything but uniform. 

At the ground line decay rates are very high and as every linesman knows this is the common point of electricity pole failure. High decay rates and maximum mechanical loading work in unison to break the pole usually in bad weather when you are at full stretch.

And this is a waste of treated wood as the rest of the pole deeper in the ground and above ground are usually still in excellent condition with many years of useful service life left.

Are you doing this now?

Regular power pole maintenance & inspection is a widely practiced method of attempting to spot rotten poles before they fall over. These methods all have one thing in common; they do not show how strong the pole is they just indicate whether the electric pole has suffered from the effects of wood rot.

For instance most of the core of the power pole can be rotted away with minimal effect on the pole strength. Yet virtually undetectable initial decay of the outer layer of the pole can reduce the poles strength by 40% or more. This is a common but often undetected cause of a power poles failure in bad weather.

A common sense solution

The sensible solution to this problem is to apply extra protection against the causes of ground rot where it is really needed; at the vulnerable ground line section of the electricity pole.

Polesaver barrier pole-sleeves will provide you with the extra protection you need to this area of your power pole. They can be quickly and easily applied to new poles or poles already in service significantly reducing the requirement for power pole replacement. Polesaver sleeves are tough, durable and compatible with all normal means of power pole installation.
