All Bethea Boards are proof tested to 1½ times the rated safe working load.
Running Boards are fabricated from A-36 Structural Steel with high elongation for maximum ductility to resist impact loads.
The running boards are finished with rust inhibitive red enamel for corrosion protection and to make the running boards highly visible for spotting during the pulling operation.
Dead weight tail sections are designed with stops to retard upward motion above the conductors. This restraint avoids the weights coming in contact with the line hardware or insulators. By retaining the weights below the conductors, the possibility of them crossing over and laying on top of the conductors is eliminated.
