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 cylindrical in cross-section having a uniform taper of 0.14 inches of diameter change per foot of length.
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 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 location is provided 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.
