Utility Solutions Inc. has created a new telescopic hot stick for live-line work. Unlike standard telescopic hot sticks, the BLUE STRIPE Take-Apart Hot Stick features removable sections and a stronger torque value.
Today's lineworkers build and maintain complex distribution networks that offer diverse challenges. A lineworker will operate switches and equipment from the ground, bucket and pole itself, all relying on a fiberglass stick for safety. From replacing fuses to occasional tree trimming, lineworkers may carry several different styles of hot sticks on their truck to ensure they have the right tool for the job. Utility Solutions’ Take-Apart Hot Stick was created to be stronger, easier to use and more versatile than standard hot sticks. A lineworker can simply remove two to three sections and adjust the length as needed.
The BLUE STRIPE line uses a unique non-woven fiberglass design created in Utility Solutions’ Hickory, N.C., facility.
