Combining a long history of reliable performance, competitive pricing, and ease of use and installation, steel poles are the sports lighting industry’s preferred support structure and have performed well at most of America’s most popular sporting venues.
Unfortunately, pole collapses in the sports lighting industry (while an infrequent event) have increased significantly in recent years and been featured in host of local and national media outlets. In 2010, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a pole recall, the first of its kind in the industry. With their proximity to areas where the public gathers for sporting events, there is a significant potential for loss of life and injury.
To prevent your facility from experiencing such a catastrophic event, RTS recommends a comprehensive inspection program for all sports lighting structures that's conducted at regular intervals.
With an experienced, diligent staff and comprehensive procedures and practices, RTS can develop and execute these programs on your behalf and provides a variety of services to our sports lighting clients, including:
