The CMS Pole Storage System was custom-designed for the utility industry to provide more effective pole yard management. It is a method for storing poles that provides more efficient pre-staging for planned work activity with minimal crew size, saving man-hours and money. The CMS system is an easily assembled component pole rack that provides greater adaptability for your ever-changing pole yard needs without sacrificing the strength and durability of cumbersome, in-line units.
The CMS portable utility pole rack is a portable system with the loading capacity of a permanent poured in place rack. Once it is assembled, it is a modular system giving you greater flexibility in moving the racks to accommodate changes in skid layouts, establishing temporary remote yards, or even moving the whole yard to a new location. Plus there are of the benefits of easier accessibility for loading, the reduced potential worker injury with a more stable pole pile, and the more orderly aesthetic appeal that our racks provide to the surrounding community.
Eliminate Disorganized Skids. The CMS storage system enables crews to get onsite faster by not having to waste time searching for the right polls. Polls that are properly stored and graded are easier to find and maintain.
Easier Access. Better pole rack placement and improved yard design creates better traffic flow and allows quicker pole retrieval.
Safety. CMS Pole Racks are design to be safe, providing the proper height to work with the poles and providing a more stable pole pile, reducing the risk of a pole handeling accident.
Durable. Composed of high strength components which can support a variety of pole sizes and materials.
CMS has four different models of racks to help you to improve your yard efficiency.
CMS 32-16-4 Pole Rack
The CMS 32-16-4 Is our full-size rack, 32’-0” long with four (4) bases. It can store a large number of poles and when outfitted with our intermediate stops can be used to store combined pole classes and sizes where quantities and budgets dictate. Of course, this unit is fully portable if it becomes necessary to move it. Just remove the middle splice bar and you pick out the two halves with a small forklift and relocate them without having to completely disassemble or reconstruct it, saving you labor time.
CMS 16-16-2 Pole Rack
The CMS 16-16-2 is 16’-0” long with two (2) bases. It is a more economical answer to your storage problems where your yard space is limited and your pole classes and lengths are varied.
CMS 24-24-3 Pole Rack
The CMS 24-24-3 is 24’-0” long with three (3) bases. This is our answer to pole storage requirements that don’t fit into our previous two rack systems
CMS 16-16-3 Heavy Duty Pole Rack
The CMS16-16-3 HD is 16’-0” long with three (3) bases. This is our heavy-duty model that can be used to store concrete poles or a combination of concrete and wood poles.
All four models can be outfitted with intermediate stops that can be repositioned along the rack to enable you to combine pole sizes and classes on a pole skid where you don’t need individual skids for each classification
CMS has an experienced crew that is available to assemble your CMS Pole Rack System quickly and efficiently. We will also provide technical assistance should you wish to perform the installation with your own crew.
All of the above models can be customized to meet your individual yard requirements. Since we do our own engineering, all we need from you is your pole storage criteria (quantities, sizes and classes) and a basic layout of your yard. We can then figure out your loading requirements and using our state-of-the-art CAD system we can draw your pole yard layout providing you with clear picture of your new investment.
