Strongwell Offers Fiberglass Power Poles for Safer Infrastructures

June 25 2018

Strongwell has designed a proprietary fiberglass power pole to directly replace existing wood, steel, and concrete poles. This lightweight product is constructed from pultruded components, providing low-conductivity and a significantly improved strength-to-weight ratio over both wood and steel. It is roughly 30% lighter than wood and as much as 60% lighter than steel. This combination of mechanical stability and lightness is provided by a matrix of high-performance constituents, from an interior, multi-directional fiberglass fabric to a high-strength resin saturation.

The immediate benefit of this construction methodology is the negation of decay or rust. This radically improves the durability of the transmission array and reduces the risk of accidents due to mechanical failure. Power poles benefit further from the unique material structure of fiberglass due to its outstanding impact resistance. It features an internal foam core designed for impact adsorption, to reduce the danger to drivers in accidental traffic collisions. In several incidents where vehicles have collided with fiberglass power poles, the impact was largely absorbed by the material’s structure, thus avoiding serious injury.

Fiberglass also offers significant benefits for installation and maintenance safety due to its lightweight nature and low-conductivity. Fiberglass power poles can be erected with reduced risk of strain or injury for workers with few special considerations for using the material. As it is low-conductive, it can be grounded similarly to wood power poles, reducing risks relating to unfamiliarity with the material. It can also be drilled for easy installation of critical transmission conductors and transformers.

Strongwell’s fiberglass power poles are designed to withstand lateral and vertical loads, to resist adverse atmospheric conditions and unforeseen impacts.
