Wood Transmission Braces
BROOKS has a complete line of engineered and tested Transmission Braces for developing the economic advantages of wood framed construction through 345kV. Our diversity in design and manufacturing facilities insures that we can furnish the proper brace to interchange with your existing systems and inventory, or meet your new framing requirements.
A variety of standard design types and sizes of braces is available to meet the unique applications of individual utility power transmission systems. Brace types include Face Mounted, Knee, Vee, Tension, Combination, and X-Brace. Designs other than those shown in the catalog are available for specific applications. We welcome the opportunity to review your bracing requirements.
All BROOKS wood Transmission Braces are manufactured from select coast region Douglas fir. The braces are pressure treated after fabrication with pentachlorophenol unless otherwise specified. End fittings are made from steel that equals or exceeds the strength ratings of ASTM A-36, are tapped to insure tightness, and are hot dipped galvanized. Assembly bolts meet the requirements of ANSI C135.l.
Catalog numbers are developed from codes, which indicate the variables for specific applications. These codes are shown for each brace group along with examples of developed catalog numbers. Braces may be ordered by the developed catalog number, or by indicating the brace type and Series number along with appropriate descriptive information such as span or spacing, drop, MHC (C/C holes), end fitting angles, and mounting hole sizes.
