Bookmark and Share

Conventional wiring poses a high threat and has caused many injuries and fatalities nationwide due to improper pole trajectory, and the electrical and fire hazard caused from exposed wires and sheered off fuses. The fact remains that accident victims, rescue personnel, pedestrians and law enforcement officials are at risk and liabilities increase.

The DOT PLUGTM is a field proven wiring system and is the break-away choice of many departments of transportation throughout the United States. When compared to other conventional cable break away systems, the DOT PLUGTM is simply superior. It is without a doubt the safest and easiest-to-maintain wiring system for roadway poles.
