APT utility pole inspections are handled by highly trained professionals to prevent inaccurate assessments.

Every APT utility pole inspector is equipped to utilize and understand our software and equipment to give you the most accurate readings. .

APT is the industry leader in the use of Non-Destructive IML-RESI powerDrill Pole Inspection Technology. Our device is the most advanced and accurate non-destructive pole testing technology in the industry. 

Our drill is ideal for poles that have undergone multiple intrusive inspection cycles with large hole boring. Even for poles that are encased in concrete or asphalt. APT’s inspection software automatically translates the IML-RESI boring results into industry standard pole strength analysis that is based upon the RUS 1730B-121 Wood Pole and Maintenance Bulletin. The inspection results are combined with customer specific visual inspection components which provide Utilities with all the reporting and accuracy of the traditional pole inspection program.
