Wood Pole Inspection
Roadsafe technicians use a resistograph drilling machine to assess the internal condition of wood poles,
posts, and structural members by locating and sizing pockets of decay. Roadsafe's wood pole inspection procedure consists of
visual, sounding, and density measuring techniques in order to estimate a wood poles overall ability to continue service.
the picture below we demonstrate how our tool can be used to identify internal voids via simulated defects. In this example,
the measuring tool was used to drill through the side of a wooden guardrail post to identify the size and location of a pre drilled
