The pole shaft is a seamless 6063-T6 aluminum alloy extrusion having a uniform wall thickness of 0.250", 0.188", 0.156" or 0.125". The sides of the shaft may be drilled for mounting luminaire fixtures.
All aluminum alloys shall comply with metallurgical and mechanical properties set forth in the Aluminum Association Standards.
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.
The anchor base is cast from A356 alloy aluminum. 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 D1.2, latest edition.
An oval reinforced gasketed handhole, having a nominal 2" x 4" or 3" x 5" inside opening, located 1"-6" above base, is standard on all poles. A grounding provision is located inside the handhole ring.
All exterior metal surfaces are mechanically cleaned to remove all oxides and contaminants prior to coating. 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.
