Shakespeare Round Tapered Tuff-Pole® products start with a specially engineered filament winding process, utilizing manufacturing equipment developed, built and engineered in house. Strands of fiberglass are impregnated with pigmented resin and spirally wound onto a rotating, heated mandrel. The winding is precision applied under continuous, uniform tension, and computer controlled for precision and repeatability – a Shakespeare innovation.

The result is a super-strong, one-piece, composite pole with a uniform surface. The poles contain a minimum of 65 percent fiberglass – maximum 35 percent polyester resin – by weight. We formulate UV-inhibitors into the resin itself, part of our thorough, systematic approach to UV protection.

Shakespeare Lighting and Distribution poles provide you with a light weight, long life product engineered to perform.  Let us know your needs!  (800) 733-4837

NEW Grounds-Trainer Personal Protective Grounding Simulator 

Utility Solutions, Inc has introduced a new grounding simulator specifically designed for utilities and lineworkers. USI has developed a new desktop trainer called the Grounds-Trainer Personal Protective Grounding Simulator that combines hands-on jumper connections with a powerful computer simulation. Personal protective grounding is a highly complex and often misunderstood subject. Textbooks have difficulty illustrating the effects of a fault on a distribution system. The Grounds-Trainer simulates an overhead distribution system with several variables. Lineworkers can learn the principles of grounding, proper work methods, and simulate the effects of a fault at a work site.
