Only Composite Utility Pole Data Released by PLS
CALGARY, April 15 /CNW/ - Resin Systems Inc. ("RS") (RS - TSX), a
technology innovator and manufacturer of advanced composite products for
infrastructure markets, announced today that the official RStandard(TM)
modular composite pole library file is now available for Power Line Systems
Inc.'s (PLS) industry-leading transmission and distribution line design
software suite, PLS-POLE and PLS-CADD.
The PLS-POLE software is now extended to allow analysis of composite
poles and PLS-CADD has been updated to optimize pole selection using RS's
unique modular utility pole, and utility engineers are now able to select and
design their grids with the officially approved and verified material library
"The transmission line design staff at POWER Engineers has used RS
composite poles on several projects at distribution and transmission voltages.
We have found them to be a very useful and viable product," said Peter
Catchpole, Senior Project Manager, POWER Engineers, Inc. "The absence of a PLS
library of this product line for use in PLS-CADD has been a hindrance to
efficient engineering and exploration of their value to a project. This will
change with this new RStandard PLS library file for use with PLS-POLE."
"The PLS listing of our highly robust and versatile RStandard composite
poles combined with our new 41-year warranty and lifetime guarantee, gives us
a competitive strategic advantage that should only enhance our sales and
marketing efforts moving forward," said Paul Giannelia, RS president and chief
executive officer. "We are proud to be the manufacturers of the first
composite poles available to the PLS community."
