Mobile Hot Stick Testing

We bring our laboratory to you!

Powertech Labs’ on-site mobile hot stick facility is an extension of our fixed laboratories. It is a reliable, efficient, on-site safety service shop that provides testing, inspection and maintenance of your tools directly at your location – meaning you can keep your tools in service while ensuring they are safe and well maintained. The mobile facility is stocked with the equipment and personnel  appropriate for your job, ensuring quality, convenience, and compliance to all customers.
Our mobile testing facility means that you do not need to part with your hot stick for a lengthy time – it helps to save line crew time as we will bring the lab to you! Preserving the dielectic and mechanical integrity of your safety tools maximizes the protection of your workers. The testing service includes both field and shop testing.
