Steel Poles

Steel poles are the most common used today because of low cost, strength and available finishes.

Steel Poles are cost-effective, ideal for higher mounting heights and easier to modify for unique applications. 60% of poles currently sold in the U.S. are steel.

Steel Poles are manufactured from hot rolled commercial carbon steel and are available in a variety of cross sections and heights.

Aluminum Poles

Aluminum poles are the perfect solution for a corrosive environment e.g. ocean salt spray, winter roadway ice control chemicals, etc.

Aluminum poles are made from 6061 or 6063, aluminum alloy seamless extruded tubes. They are heat treated after welding to produce a T6 temper. Aluminum poles are lightweight, low maintenance and corrosion-resistant. They are available for both anchor base and direct burial installation.

Ideal for lower mounting height applications such as parking lots, walkways, etc.

Fiberglass Poles

Fiberglass poles are non-conductive, lightweight and easy to install. Fiberglass is colorfast throughout the pole so you won’t have to worry about touching up the paint in high-pedestrian areas – no rust!

Fiberglass poles can be manufactured in either round or square profiles. The round fiberglass pole will either be manufactured by a filament winding process or centrifugally cast. Square fiberglass poles are manufactured using a pultrusion method. Fiberglass is corrosion-resistant.

Concrete Poles

Concrete poles are very utilitarian and are used in areas where high winds and corrosive atmospheres are a concern. Concrete poles are ideal for applications where limited deflection is required e.g. highway cameras, parking lot security cameras, sports lighting, etc.

Concrete poles are pre-stressed and available in centrifugally spun, round-tapered and/or square-tapered static cast. Concrete poles are strong and low maintenance. 

Wood Poles

Laminated wood poles are lightweight, easy-to-install and environmentally “green”. Wood poles are treated for protection from decay and insect damage with no chemicals to harm the environment. They are the perfect complement for parks, pedestrian walkways, recreational trails and other rustic settings.

Laminated wood poles are manufactured from kiln-dried, West Coast Douglas Fir.

Steel Arms

Aluminum Arms

Aluminum arms, bullhorns and tenons provide a wide variety of mounting options for attaching light fixtures to aluminum poles.

Steel Pole Finishes

Steel poles are the most common used today because of strength, flexibility- of-installation and available finishes. Steel poles are cost-effective, ideal for higher mounting heights and easier to modify for unique applications. 60% of poles currently sold in the U.S. are steel.

Steel poles are available in a wide variety of finishes. See below for various option.
