Structural Strength & Reliability

Power substations are the backbone of utility systems, and there’s no room for downtime or failure. These steel structures are our bread and butter. Supported by stellar service, our design and manufacture of steel substation components—from folded plate tapered tubular structures, lattice, and standard shapes—deliver the durability and extended service life your grid relies on.

What Our Partners Say

"DIS-TRAN Steel always follows through with getting my orders shipped out on time. Their communication is top-notch. Whenever there are issues, they handle it quickly and get it resolved the first time. This is critical, our steel orders are very specific in design, strength. If the steel isn’t fabricated correctly and doesn’t meet the specifications, it can’t be used.”

Common Substation Types

  • Switch Stand - function by disconnecting or isolating the current/voltage throughout a circuit.

  • Metering Support - measures voltage or current that passes through the circuit.

  • Box Bay Structure - distribute current to different circuits leaving the substation
