underground2-300x224More and more people are demanding to convert their overhead electrical systems to underground, and Vaughn Industries has helped many industrial and commercial customers make the switch. Underground systems have many advantages – less chance of losing electricity due to power outages and no more hassle of trimming tree branches to avoid power-lines. Vaughn Industries has always prided itself in staying up to date with the industry’s recent technological developments, and underground systems are no different. We are here to meet our customer’s demands with top quality work and professional technicians, while always meeting budget requirements.
We can construct brand-new underground systems, both trenchless and open-trench, installing all of the cables and pipes necessary. We have experience in the maintenance of already existing underground systems, able to replace or repair any malfunctioning components. We have installed street lighting systems as well as airport lighting, and we can even construct confined space entry systems, allowing our customers to easily access areas with constricted spaces. Even high voltage cable installation presents no trouble for us – we can easily work with cabling up to 138 kilovolts.
