  • Discover Today's Modern Crossarms

    Watch the new video from detailing the history and benefits of today's modern, wood crossarms.


    Douglas fir crossarms come from sustainable forests that are managed to meet the social, economic, and ecological needs of present and future generations. Treated douglas fir wood remains the most cost effective material in terms of initial costs as well as total lifecycle costs.


    BROOKS is committed to producing the highest quality crossarms available in the industry. Our products are available in a wide variety of sizes and applications and meet all industry standards.


    For over 60 years Brooks Manufacturing Co. has been designing and manufacturing quality wood transmission products for the electric utlility industry. These products are available as individual components or as complete structure kits up to 345 kV. Transmission framing products are available with Extenda-Life® coating and end plates.


    Brooks has a wide variety of engineered hardware items and components which form an integral part of our structure designs and assembled wood products. We provide complete structure framing kits and project packages.


    On average, Brooks Manufacturing sequesters 15 million pounds of carbon per year. In addition, all the leftover wood scraps are used on-site to power a portion of our machinery.


    By eliminating the traditional, multiple mounting points for crossarms, the easily mounted braceless bracket installs in less time than traditional braces.
