The pole shaft is one piece construction, being fabricated from a weldable grade carbon steel structural tubing which
has a uniform wall thickness of 11 gauge (0.1196") or 7 gauge (0.1793"). The pole shaft material shall conform to
ASTM A-500 Grade C with a minimum yield strength of 50,000 psi. The pole shaft has a
full length longitudinal resistance weld and is uniformly cylindrical in cross-section
with round sides and excellent torsional properties.
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 A-153.
Fully galvanized anchor bolts are available upon request.
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.
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.
Galvanizing is available upon request.
