ENTRUST Solutions Group provides a comprehensive assessment to eliminate guesswork and provide the foundation for an accurate cost analysis along with the ability to include pole loading as a part of third-party attachments applications as required by several electric utilities.

Given the varying standards among utilities and municipalities, it is crucial to secure a partner that can deliver reliable information with a quick turnaround. Telecommunication companies have the reassurance that an accurate and precise pole loading analysis will be submitted to the governing authorities for approval which in turn will prevent delays in receiving their notice to proceed for their attachment. ENTRUST will also offer remedies for failing poles and will suggest alternate design routes to alleviate costly pole replacements. We use the most current pole loading software that analyzes the pole based on latest NESC requirements and can provide our clients with PE-sealed reporting.
