How Composite Light Poles Are Made
We manufacture fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite light poles made with computer-controlled equipment.
Since this production process allows for precise control of the glass, fiber, and resin required to create the poles, we’re able to make high-quality fiberglass structures built to spec that are meant to last. Whether you prefer the standard tenon top construction or you want poles that are capped and drilled, we can make it happen. As a plus, all tenons and anchor bases are made with durable, corrosion-resistant aluminum.
Types of Finish
You have two options for the kind of finish you’d like on your fiberglass poles: natural or smooth.
Our natural finish is typically more cost-effective since the textured appearance occurs naturally during the manufacturing process. It compares favorably in appearance with other available fiberglass pole options.
The smooth finish tends to be slightly more expensive due to the required extra step of sanding the pole before painting. This option is aesthetically similar to steel and aluminum poles, but more cost-friendly.
Both are finished with a special resin applied at 12-15 mils thick, which provides a superior finish to the normal 3-6 mils of paint. The resin is pigmented and fortified with ultraviolet inhibitors to produce a long-lasting, reliable product.
Why Choose FRP Composite Light Poles?
Impact Resistant – Composite poles are more resistant than other poles to major impacts, like drops.
Low Maintenance – Since these poles are corrosion-resistant, they’ll never rust. Plus, they aren’t affected by the elements or damaging products like road salts, fertilizers, and saltwater. This makes composite poles ideal for just about anywhere, including coastal locations.
Super Durable – They can withstand wind loads up to 180 MPH. That means they’ll be able to weather even a Category 5 hurricane.
Budget-Friendly – Because of the precise manufacturing, customizable options, and superior strength, you may be thinking that composite poles are more expensive than other types of poles. But the price is pretty comparable.
