Insulated Booms for Utilities Transmission
Waco Boom supplies manufacturers of aerial units with the highest quality filament wound booms for optimal safety and function. Dependability in the insulated boom is crucial for end-users specializing in the maintenance and repair of energized transmission lines.
Servicing Your Transmission Customer
Waco Boom understands that insulated booms for aerial lift platforms, line lifters and other transmission equipment need to be specially designed for applications with a Category A rating per ANSI A92.2. Surfaces are purposefully prepared and coated with dielectric materials that prevent accrual of debris within the boom section and assist in cleaning. Waco Boom’s manufacturing process provides the most consistent and dense fiber-to-resin ratio, preventing voids and gaps and ensuring dielectric integrity. This attention is important as customers work with transmission and subtransmission line voltages ranging from 69kV to 765kV. Waco Boom is committed to continual improvement and working toward new designs to provide the most rigid, safe and far-reaching booms in the world.
