We're currently working with Britten Studios on their BannerSaver product, which allows for reduced load on light poles that have mounted banners. Within CPM, an opportunity exists to build a model and method of calculation to quantify the reduced load on a light pole over a range of banner sizes, wind speeds, and deflections in order to provide municipalities and agencies the information they need to correctly specify which BannerSaver hardware is right for the application. It's our hope to understand the reduced loads through testing and computational fluids modeling so that Britten Studios can better market their products to their customers.
