Golf netting systems are a key element of opening a golf course. Before golf vourse can open, golf nets must be installed and inspected to ensure errant balls will stay inside the range and won't pose threat to people and property in close proximity.

But before installing a golf pole and netting system, here are some helpful information for designing an effective netting solution:

  • Size and dimension of the golf area
  • Environmental facts which includes weather, wind speed and soil condition. Also, state and local code compliance.
  • What would client prefer on the netting structure: Fixed, retractable or breakaway technology
  • Pole and netting type and height

Since all golf courses have unique specifications, our golf netting solutions made here in Boston, MA meet the distinct needs of course designers. If you have inquiries or specific concerns about golf netting system, contact ElecComm. We are glad to answer your queries.

Golf netting is a specialty service of ElecComm. We design and create sturdy golf barrier structures that will serve as a safety high barricade around your golf range property. This will prevent errant balls from escaping the vicinity and cause damages to neighboring properties.

We custom design every solution because every golf course has different dimension and requirements. Whether its a vast golf range or just a mini public course, you can count on us. Our team has been around in this industry for decades and we have implemented countless golf netting set ups, replacements and repairs across New England. We use premium quality materials that will withstand strikes and weather for years. So expect a very high standard installation of golf poles and netting at your facility that will last.

Golf operators are liable to damages related to errant golf balls. It is their lookout to ensure that their golf field and drive range is a safe place for regular games and tournaments and this includes the safety of nearby communities as well. If you need golf range netting services you can trust, contact ElecComm.

Advantages of Using Underground High Voltage Cable

ElecComm's core business focus is on the installation, removal and maintenance of electric/communications distribution systems. For almost twenty years now, we’ve served municipalities across New England with underground and overhead electrical distribution system installation, maintenance, and removal services. Today we thought we’d share with you why municipalities invest so heavily in underground power distribution systems. Here are other advantages of using underground cables:

  • Appropriate in areas where overhead lines are complicated and not feasible to install
  • Low upkeep required
  • Minimal voltage drops
  • Lower fault incidence
  • Less prone to short circuits because they are less exposed to environmental elements
  • Theft and illegal connection issues are reduced
  • Does not endanger wildlife or low flying aircraft

Looking at these advantages, underground cable power lines offer more safe and secure power solutions for urban environments. To learn more about underground high voltage cable system, contact ElecComm.

Underground Cable Maintenance Procedures

Earlier we blogged about the necessity to systematically maintain underground high-voltage cables. Today we’d like to expand upon that topic and get into the details of what needs to be accomplished within your preventative maintenance program. We’ll also address our approach to corrective maintenance action should cable fault ever strike your underground cable system.

Underground high-voltage preventative cable maintenance includes:

  • Ground connections, cable joints and splices are inspected to verify their integrity and condition.
  • Switchgears, transformers, and other above-ground fixtures are checked for cleanliness and physical condition.
  • Dust and debris are removed from termination joint outer surfaces.
  • Performing several tests such as contact resistance tests on terminations, insulation resistance tests between ground connections and conductors. This is done to unveil any developing damage within the system.
  • Testing for defective electrical contacts and joints with infrared thermal scanning. Joints that appears to have an elevated temperature requires to be cleaned and re-torqued prior to re-testing.

Corrective maintenance is accomplished as a response to faults (e.g. damage resulting from digging, internal damaged wires, overloading, poor handling and installation, etc.). It includes:

  • Inspecting electric cable routes for potential defects following an excavation.
  • Insulation resistance testing to uncover faults between conductors and ground connections.
  • Tracking faulty sections through the use of a sheath tester and a cable fault locator.
  • Damaged electrical cable repairs, re-testing and re-commissioning.

Condition-Based Maintenance involves the inspection of underground power transmission cables and above-ground grid fixtures that have sustained partial defects. Condition-based maintenance services determine the kind of repairs that must be addressed immediately or in the near future. It’s essentially a health check-up for your high-voltage infrastructure.
