high quality fiberglass and resin as its base materials,
the FRP lighting pole is made with patented techniques and
in conformity with ANSI C136.20. -1990.
FRP lighting pole could be used as luminary pole, utility
pole, flagpole and other applications and has distinctive
advantages compared with the traditional material ones,
steel pole, aluminum pole, concrete and wood pole.
Using non-saturated polyester resin as its basal material
and unidirectional fiberglass woven fabrics as its skeleton,
the FRP pole is taken shape by centrifugal process and has
high axial strength and its content of fiberglass is over
50%. Its external surface is smooth and treated with an
environment-tolerant aliphatic polyurethane coating to protect
1)light in weight:
Because of light in weight, it saves time,
manpower and equipment during the installation process.
It can be erected by a crew of only two or three people
without need for crane or hoist and reduce installation
2)Low in maintenance:
In its service life FRP light pole will not
be rusty, not easy to
be scrapped and no need to be painted. Its weather-resistance
is better than those of wood, aluminum, steel and cement
FRP pole would not be deteriorating, rust
or mildew in salt air climates and acid or alkali soil.
AND BEAUTIFUL SURFACE:
Its surface could be made very smooth and
its color could be coordinated with its using environment.
Its surface coating contains anti-ultraviolet matter, which
helps to prevent color fading.
The FRP is an insulator to electricity, so
the pole is good in
FRP lighting poles are engineered to withstand
the specified winds according to the calculation of its
wind load conforming to AASHTO LTS-2 1995.Its low temperature
performance is exceptional; it will get stronger in extreme
with metal and cement ones, the FRP lighting pole need lower
transportation and installation cost and its maintain cost
is near zero and has long service life. Therefore the FRP
lighting pole comprehensive cost is lower. In the long run,
the pole is more economical than wood, metal or cement ones.
exterior surface can be smooth or textured, shall be free
of crack, air bubbles, damage, and any exposed surface fibers
and be uniformly colored.
b.The FRP lighting pole shall be finished with an ultraviolet-resistant
uniform coating equal to the performance characteristics
of aliphatic polyurethane.
c.The pole length shall have a tolerance of not exceeding
0.03m per 10m.
d.The bent strength is over 320Mpa.
to AASHTO LTS.2: 1985, the pole shall not exceed a maximum
deflection of 10% of the length of the pole above the ground
line when subject to the maximum simulated wind loading
and shall not have more than 1% permanent deflection.
specification of the FRP lighting pole
specification should at least have the following
a. Direct--burial shaft; Direct--burial shaft bent arm (single
arm, double arms); Or
b.Anchor-based shaft; Anchor-based shaft bent arm (single
arm, double arms).
