An Overview of 5 Important Aerial Equipment
Aerial equipment is undeniably necessary to the installation process of overhead cables or wires. While different types of aerial equipment are needed for different projects depending on the specifications of that project, there are a number of popular equipment known to most people.
Today, we discuss a number of important aerial equipment and what function they serve in the installation process.
1. Aerial lift
Lifts help the installer move around and over obstacles quickly and safely. There are different types of lifts depending on your needs, such as scissor, boom, and vertical lifts. Scissor lifts has great lifting ability and larger platforms, and can extend up to about 50 feet high. They are unique due to their ability to bend. A boom lift, on the other hand, can reach as high as 126 feet but cannot bend. Lastly, a vertical personnel lift is used to lift workers and is typically smaller, reaching up to only 50 feet.
2. Pole brackets
Brackets help improve the integrity of overhead structures and provide stable support so that other components can be attached. High-quality and durable aerial equipment are absolutely essential. Our pole brackets can come with ratcheting straps, making it easy to set up and offering the tightest fits.
3. Hydraulic tensile pullers
Hydraulic tensile pullers are specifically designed to aid in installing overhead cables and pulling them to the correct relaxed tension for optimal performance and cost efficiency. We also provide accessories for these pullers, including specialized electronic meters and more.
4. Overhead sheaves
Overhead sheaves are made for overhead power and cable line installation. They can be made to suit various conductor dimensions. They also come with different specifications for different pulley diameters.
5. Corner blocks
Corner blocks are used to help prevent accidents that may occur during or after cable installation. They can help improve stability, increase the lifetime of overhead infrastructure, and reduce the amount of maintenance costs needed over the lifespan of a cable.
