LWS Granted Two Patents for PoleEnforcer SRS® and AVR Adjustable Vault Reinforcement®

January 2nd, 2018

LWS is proud to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued patent number 9,777,500 for the PoleEnforcer SRS® spliced reinforcement system and patent number 9,822,530 for the AVR Adjustable Vault Reinforcement® system.

The PoleEnforcer SRS® is a multi-sectioned steel system that can reinforce poles in soft soil, high decay, car break, burned and excavated conditions. The AVR Adjustable Vault Reinforcement® system allows utilities to reinforce the deteriorating ceilings of underground vaults and restore the strength to H20 loading capacity. Using the AVR saves a significant amount of money when compared to ceiling rebuilds or complete vault replacement.
