Overhead power lines are the crux of the UK’s National Grid system. Though they form the back bone of one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive power distribution networks, overhead line materials need to be manufactured and constructed with incredible care and attention to detail in order to adhere to recent strict safety standards and best engineering practices.

There are plenty of practical considerations to bear in mind when ordering overhead line equipment. Depending on their eventual application, overhead lines must be strong, robust and designed to withstand even the harshest of conditions to ensure maximum performance throughout all seasons. They need to be easy to install and maintain to keep labour costs low, but most importantly, they need to boast a long shelf life in order to be cost-effective.

Unrivalled Distribution Solutions from OTDS

OTDS makes use of the latest overhead line materials and techniques that have emerged from some of the world’s leading designers and engineers to develop products that are guaranteed to go the distance. Contemporary overhead line equipment is much less cumbersome than latter-day counterparts – in fact, modern overhead lines tend to be constructed from small, lightweight components, reducing their visual impact on the surrounding environment.
