ET-Truss: Pole Strengthening System

Innovation to Upgrade Pole Strength

In-service wood poles may need additional capacity due to overloading or the need to storm-harden a system. The ET-TrussTM is "extended and tapered", and engineered to increase bending capacity of in-service wood poles, while costing a third or less of replacement costs.

Increase Capacity by Three or More Classes

By installing the ET-Truss, bending capacity of a wood pole can increase by one, two, three or even more classes. This provides a cost-saving option that can help you manage system reliability and cost.

Tested and Evaluated Nationwide

The ET-Truss has been tested by Osmose and evaluated by pole owners nationwide for practicality and strength. Individual components and features have also been tested at the Osmose testing faciltiy.  


Efficient Turnkey Installation

Osmose can identify overloaded conditions, specify the correct ET-Truss to meet your strength requirements and provide installation, usually with no disruption to services. The structural durability of your lines is increased at a fraction of the cost for pole replacement.
