LWS Introduces New Horizontal Switch Structure Kits

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

LWS has developed a new two-pole horizontal switch structure package that includes a steel switch platform that can accommodate horizontal gang-operated switches.

This new design was developed in cooperation with LWS representatives and their associated utilities in the northeast US. The utility’s switch manufacturer preferred not to design or supply the mounting platform, only the switches.

In response to this request LWS engineers were able to design a complete two-pole structure that can be used in tangent, angle, guyed, un-guyed or dead-end applications through 345kV.

This structure design includes E-LAM® Never-Twist® laminated wood poles and an easy-to-assemble tubular frame with dead-end capabilities. Click HERE to download the Horizontal Switch Structure brochure.
