Geotek adds H-frame crossarms and braces to PUPI fiberglass utility products
By Anthony Capkun
June 5, 2013 – Geotek, the producer of PUPI (pron. “puppy”) fiberglass utility products, introduced a full line of fiberglass H-frame crossarms and braces, adding to the company’s line of PUPI brand electrical distribution and transmission products. PUPI fiberglass H-frame crossarms and braces are now available in standard system lengths of 22 ft, 26 ft and 32 ft, in both tangent and deadend configurations. Custom transmission arms in virtually any length are also available, says the company, with its engineers able to design transmission systems based on customer specs. PUPI H-frame crossarms and braces can be used with all pole materials, including wood. The H-frame systems feature patent-pending EZE-Fit adjustable brace end fittings, which adjust to any angle and allow up to 10 in. of length adjustability to facilitate re-fitting to existing poles. SunGUARD UV-resistant coating is thermally bonded to the surface, forming a protective layer that stays smooth and protects the fiberglass from intense sunlight for 60+ years. Finally, TorqueGUARD bushings reinforce holes for added strength and prevent any possibility of damage during hardware installation.
