Insulated Booms for Utilities Distribution
Consumers rely on the most uninterrupted operation of electrical service possible. Utility companies require the proper tools to safely and quickly maintain and repair electricity distribution lines and equipment. Insulated booms on aerial lift devices help ensure the safety of linemen exposed to energized lines. Even with extensive skill and training, proper insulation is a vital part of mitigating the always-present risks of live line work.

Function In A Range Of Solutions
Your customer needs confidence that their employees will be safe. Fiberglass booms manufactured at Waco Boom for distribution applications, such as our insulated booms electricity distribution and Class C insulated booms, are designed and tested for a minimum Category C rating per ANSI A92.2. These booms provide necessary, secondary insulation for voltages up to 46 kV. Waco Boom works with customers developing man lifts on trucks, vans, trailers, rails, and track-mounted units. These aerial work platforms include specially made jibs and upper and lower booms for articulating and telescopic devices. In addition to the dielectric properties, Waco Boom is typically designed to a 7:1 Factor of Safety based on customer usage and load requirements.
Tens of thousands of booms over three decades demonstrate Waco Boom’s track record that lift manufacturers and users regularly depend on.
Waco Boom manufactures with a specific focus on insulating booms for the aerial work industry and has been held as the industry standard for nearly 30 years. Since 1998, our engineering staff has maintained a presence helping inform and understand industry standards for domestic and international applications.
Waco Boom uses a filament winding process and unique molding techniques, unmatched by any other process. This ensures the highest resin-to-fiber ratio and heightened consistency, which translates to better stiffness and durability, prevention of air and moisture gaps, lighter weight, and superior aesthetics. When designing to customers’ needs for safety of life and property, choose the boom that is backed by the best quality, expertise, and service.
All progress and development at Waco Boom reflect back to manufacturing the best filament wound booms. The quality assurance program is built on the premise of continual improvement. This improvement is pursued in production efficiencies, new tooling and part designs, enhanced quality checks, and engineering research.
Waco Boom performs onsite destructive break testing and dielectric tests. This focus and attention are unparalleled and new challenges are welcome to help drive a safer, lighter, stronger, and unique product for the aerial lift industry.
Based on performance requirements, Waco Boom can help recommend and develop the proper boom for your application. Tooling can be machined to create a unique, proprietary component for your design. In addition, on the back, you will find a chart with readily available common boom sizes.
