Responding to requests for work platforms capable of providing electrical insulation at voltages up to 765 kV, Diversified Products introduces the IWP-765kV Insulated Work Platform. Designed to enhance worker productivity and increase job functions performed with hydraulic telescoping cranes and digger derricks, the platform permits bare-hand work and de-energized line construction, and reduces lineman fatigue by eliminating the need to climb towers.

Featuring a tried-and-proven design, the IWP-765kV provides electrical insulation to personnel working on live transmission lines and equipment at voltages up to 765 kV. The insulated jib consists of a main structural fiberglass member, which is filament wound with computer-controlled, continuous-roving epoxy/anhydride resin. It's also sealed with bulkhead covers to minimize maintenance and protect from contaminants that may reduce insulation properties. A desiccant canister detects any moisture within the sealed jib and is visible from the ground when the jib is in a stowed or un-stowed position. In addition, a high-performance, sharp-edge corona ring reduces current leakage and is rated up to 765 kV.
