Square Tapered Steel Poles
Pole Shaft
The pole shaft is one or two section design, each section being fabricated from standard 11 gauge (0.1196"), 7 gauge (0.1793"), or 3 gauge (0.2391") steel. The pole shaft material is a weldable grade hot rolled commercial quality carbon steel with a guaranteed minimum yield strength of 55,000 psi after fabrication. Each section is one-piece construction with a full length longitudinal weld and is square in cross-section having a uniform taper of 0.10 inches of diameter change per foot of length.
Base Plate
The anchor base is fabricated from structural quality hot rolled carbon steel plate that meets or exceeds a minimum yield strength of 36,000 psi. The anchor base telescopes the pole shaft and is circumferentially welded top and bottom. All welds are performed in accordance with the American Welding Society specification AWS D1.1, latest edition.
Anchor Bolts
Anchor bolts are fabricated from commercial quality hot rolled carbon steel bar that meets or exceeds a minimum yield strength of 55,000 psi. Four properly sized anchor bolts, each with two regular hex nuts and washers, are furnished and shipped with all poles unless otherwise specified. Anchor bolts shall have the threaded end galvanized a minimum of 8 inches in accordance with ASTM A153. Fully galvanized anchor bolts are available upon request.
An oval reinforced gasketed handhole, having a nominal 3" x 5" or 4" x 6-1/2" inside opening, located 1'-6" above base, is standard on all poles. Optional 5" x 8" and 4" x 10" handholes are available (see options). A grounding provision is located inside the handhole ring.
The Standard Finish is a polyester thermosetting powder coating applied to the surface of the substrate to a minimum of 3 mils for all color finishes. Hot dip Galvanized finish to a ASTM A123 specification or primed finish is also available. For optional finishes, see K-KLAD and
K-KLAD Over Galvanizing.
