Elevated Structures

Elevated StructuresElevated Structures

Our unequaled experience in the electric transmission structure industry has proven PUM's ability to safely work on complicated, elevated structures, under very difficult conditions. This experience, and the abilities we have demonstrated over the past 18 years, clearly shows our skills in surface preparation and coating application under the stringent requirements associated with corrosion control on bridges and overhead structures. Our SSPC QP1 and QP2 certifications further confirm that PUM can provide a safe, successful painting project to these critical, high visibility structures.

Our crews are trained and experienced in configuring and installing climbing and rigging equipment to ensure safe access to these complex structures and have the proven ability to perform all manner of surface preparation and coating application. These structures often present unique logistical constraints and safety issues (i.e. third rail, railroad safety). As the coatings work on these structures often requires compliance with mandated regulations, our ISO 9001: 2015 and QS1 Quality Management Process certifications have provided PUM with the tools to fulfill these requirements.

Even though we are not required by law or specifications, we carry a $10,000,000 Pollution Liability Insurance policy to protect our customers.
