Insulatus in the USA is adding a 5 US ton load insulator to its product range. This will become the smallest unit in the range and will be available from September 2011.

Insulatus said its technical team worked to ensure the unit becomes available before the change in law on 8 November 2011, which will mandate the use of insulating links when working close to live power lines.

In other news, Insulatus announced the appointment of Hanes Supply Inc. as a dealer for the Tag Line Insulator and Load Insulator products.

Hanes Supply is a manufacturer and distributor of lifting products serving construction, government agencies, industry, municipalities and utility markets. They operate primarily in the upper eastern seaboard in the United States, but have a national and worldwide distribution network.
