Portable Rumble Strip

RoadQuake is a highly engineered transverse portable rumble strip that is placed perpendicular to the direction of travel with the purpose of increasing driver awareness to oncoming changes in the road, such as work zones. As drivers’ vehicles travel over the PSS rumble strips, they will hear and feel the vibrations of RoadQuake.

Tri-Clamp for Lineworkers

The Tri-Clamp is a patented, multi-plane clamp that securely cradles bolts in accordance with NEMA spacing, then clasps itself to the mounting pad of a connecting jumper line. The resulting bolt stability creates a process efficiency that cuts connecting times by as much as 65%. A starter socket holds a nut, lock washer and washer in alignment, enabling lineworkers to safely seat all three onto their corresponding bolt in one motion, thereby eliminating dropped washers and facilitating faster, more systematic connections. This tool reduces lineworker exposure and makes an otherwise hazardous...
