Overhead Clearances

According to OSHA, nearly 30% of all crane-related accidents result in fatalities due to electric shock or fire from the boom and crane’s contact with energized power lines. Through the use of 3D laser scanning, measuring overhead obstructions is quick, safe, and accurate. Our technicians can calculate the overhead clearance from the ground and do not have to worry about coming into contact with energized power lines. Furthermore, laser technology is more accurate than traditional methods because it looks at thousands of points along the clearance plane, not just a few sample points.
