Wooden Utility Pole Repair
Woodpeckers, hunters, run-away cars... many different things cause damage to utility poles. When the damage is structurally dangerous, the pole either has to be replaced at a huge expense, or a practical field repair must be devised. Aquawrap® has become a very viable solution to this problem.
Although many laboratories and customers have test Aquawrap® in almost every conceivable way, the pole manufacturer had to have hard data on the performance when applied to old, weathered, treated wood poles. The tests showed that a severely damaged pole can be rebuilt in the field, using Aquawrap® and when subjected to enough bending load, the pole would always break somewhere out in the "good wood" areas, away from the repair.
Logistics has worked with the customer and now produces exclusive,
custom-designed material that provide field workers with just the right
amount of material to repair the pole as needed. This material is tinted
to match the color of the wooden pole, thus saving labor on expensive
paints and coatings.
Aquawrap® is the simplest, most cost-effective repair you can find.
