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.
