Street & Area Lighting

Cecil Composites light poles are manufactured within a facility and on equipment that were designed and engineered to address the growing demand for filament-wound composite poles. 

Strands of fiberglass are infused with pigmented resin and spirally wound onto a rotating mandrel to provide the ideal strength for each pole’s application. Every inch of our production process was designed with the end users’ requirements in mind. 

The result is a high-performance structure with an aesthetically pleasing, uniform surface. UV-inhibitors are formulated into the resin and surface finishes as part of our thorough, systematic approach to UV protection. After cooling, the poles are fitted with tenons and other attachments. Depending on the requirements, they may also undergo additional finishing steps such as polishing prior to final coating to the customer specification.
