Pole Reinstatement

Our propriety RFD Pole Reinstatement System™ is an environmentally friendly and lower cost alternative to pole replacement. It employs a “positive bolted system” of ferrules and bolts to reinstate a pole’s optimum strength. This innovative system can extend pole life for up to twenty years and is easily installed in the most inaccessible of terrains.

Continuous innovation has led Spotless brand UAM (Utility Asset Management) to design and manufacture the BRFD non-invasive Band-Plate process, which allows safe and cost effective reinstatement of damaged or substandard poles. The BRFD System offers full structural support for defective poles with no sound wood at or below ground level. In addition, it eliminates the requirements to attach the nail through the pole with bolts and screws.

Both our RFD and BRFD Pole Reinstatement Systems are based on sound engineering design calculations and have been tested to industry standards by independent advisors.
