Our transformer bases are available in aluminum and steel and meet AASHTO requirements.

ULS’s banner arms are engineered to reduce a banner’s loading on a pole. We offer both bolt-on and banded attachments.

Two-tier adapter plates reduce the labor and time required to fix anchor bolts that are set incorrectly. Also known as “goof plates,” we fabricate the bottom plate of the adapter to accommodate the positioning of the incorrectly set anchor bolts. The top plate provides the correct bolt circle. A custom steel base cover is provided to hide the fix!
