MATCO Provides Sports Lighting Repair and Maintenance Services

 

Sports lighting poles, as with any man-made structure, require periodic inspection and maintenance during their service life. Without proper maintenance, the deteriorating effects of the environment over time can reduce the functional life of a sports pole and in some cases, cause pole collapse. Corrosion, an unusually strong wind event, metal fatigue due to prolonged, wind-induced vibrations, or an overloading of the structure may damage a pole and lead to a catastrophic failure. The most common forms of damage include weld failures, concrete foundation cracking and coatings deterioration.

The methods used for repair include baseplate weld repair, adequate draining source installation, fitting of steel repair plates and welding of new plate to existing shafts.  Foundation repair and concrete analysis is available.  Customized cathodic protection solutions can stop the corrosion process and provide additional years of service to your sports lighting poles.  In addition, MATCO offers custom coating solutions to protect and extend the life of damaged or existing structures.  All repair procedures are performed by NACE certified technicians that have undergone extensive training with sports lighting structures and their related corrosion assessment and mitigation techniques.  All welding is performed by AWS and CWB certified professionals.  Non-destructive testing is performed by certified ASNT professionals.
