The Operating pole kit is suitable for applying a range of isolation earth leads to designated earth points and overhead cables. Operating poles are manufactured from a lightweight resin-impregnated, electrical insulation grade fibre glass. A number of intermediate poles can be selected to make up longer length poles. The precision snap action joints and tight tolerances minimize flexure of the pole assembly. The lower pole can be supplied with a non-slip grip to provide a guaranteed grip and a rain shield can also be fitted to keep this section dry. Plugs or bungs can be fitted to the bottom of the pole to prevent the ingress of mud and dirt.
