Galvanized steel power pole

Galvanized steel poles are meant to provide decades of safe, reliable service when installed correctly. A galvanized steel power pole is a great choice for most applications outside the inner suburb areas. These are by far the most common type of pools used in Sydney.

Advantages of galvanized steel poles

  • Poles made from galvanized steel have been known to last for as long as 15 years, depending on the installation circumstances.
  • Galvanizing steel poles are more aesthetically pleasing and less conspicuous than other types, and they blend well with the surroundings, making it less difficult to keep a view unobstructed. These poles can be painted before installation to match the colour scheme of an existing or new house, and they are highly sturdy due to their zinc coating.
  • Installation of galvanized steel poles is often less expensive than concrete poles, and they may be placed in compact locations without the need for heavy lifting equipment.
  • If you build a pole, it is likely that the one made of galvanized steel will cause less friction with your neighbours and will not intrude as much on the view of the area you hope to retain.
  • As you probably already know, galvanized steel poles cause far fewer problems than wood poles do with your neighbours. The fact that they’re not wood means they don’t attract termites, and they also don’t go through the painful process of ageing as wood poles do.

Disadvantages of Galvanized steel Poles

  • Galvanized steel poles do not have the same service life as wood in certain circumstances, and in coastal areas, salt air accumulates on the pole. It is deposited at the base of the pole, accelerating corrosion at ground level. And here the biggest problem starts.
  • The most frequent galvanized steel poles are smaller than wood; normally, anything larger than a 7.2M pole is more difficult to come by; therefore, if bigger heights are necessary, galvanized steel may not be an option. In this scenario, these poles are more expensive than lumber.
  • The corrosion process will always be more rapid in a galvanized pole at ground level in any installation site. This is the region that is kept wetter because the soil retains moisture long after rainy weather.
  • These poles are achieved by immersing the pole in a bath of the galvanizing solution, known as hot dipping, during which the galvanizing coating is applied to the pole. It is important to remember that the pole’s core is mild galvanized steel, which is susceptible to rust and corrosion. As a result, after the galvanized covering has been worn away, the galvanized steel corrodes quite fast.
  • In the case of galvanized steel private poles, Telstra has a no-climb policy, which means that they do not prefer to use them to support their telecommunications cables. On the other hand, other communications operators are delighted to collaborate with galvanized steel poles and interact with them without any concerns.

Hardwood timber power pole

For more than a century, this pole has been the most widely utilized in the nation. This pole is the perfect solution for electrical and telecommunications projects requiring a certain amount of vertical height. 8m, 9.5m, and 11m are the most typical lengths used in residential construction.

Advantages of hardwood timber power poles

  • Depending on how it’s installed, it may last anywhere from 15 to 25 years.
  • Because they are made of wood, timber poles have a more natural appearance and come in various sizes.
  • Timber poles come in various sizes, although the most typical in residential areas are 8, 9.5, and 11 M in length. “
  • Because of its extended lifetime, which can only be projected at 25-35 years or more in some installation regions due to various circumstances, wood poles are more often utilized as street poles than steel ones.
  • We use a specialized spray booth to clean, etch prime, and paint our titan poles for a smooth, uniform finish.

Disadvantages of Galvanized steel Poles

  • Since wood poles have a greater diameter and a more uneven surface, they must be placed using heavy lifting equipment to reach the region immediately next to the pole’s intended site.
  • We would advise that even if the groundwater or moisture level is higher than usual in some areas, it is not recommended to place wood poles in these regions since the timber may rapidly dry out above ground. Also, if it is kept wet or moist for an extended time, the timber will be prone to early decay and corrosion.

Titan Composite power poles

The Titan Pole is a ground-breaking innovation reshaping Australian power pole installations. The Titan Pole is resistant to rust, rot, termites, and bush fires, making it a Your Power Pole for the Rest of Your Life. It’s the pinnacle of pole construction.

Titan Poles are unique in their design, boasting a wide range of advantages over conventional wooden poles. The manufacturing process uses an advanced polymer material that is stronger than steel for tensile strength. And while they are lighter than traditional wooden poles, this engineered product contains significantly more aluminium than its counterparts, providing increased strength and durability.

Advantages of Titan Composite power poles

  • Enjoy a lifetime Warranty with these ultimate titan composite power poles.
  • Rust Proof and Corrosion resistant, making them very durable in harsh conditions.
  • Termite Proof, so they last longer than timber poles
  • The titan composite power pole is rot proof as it is made up of high-quality materials like fibreglass and polyester resin.
  • Bush Fire Proof
  • Non-Conductive, which makes them safer for use around high voltage lines.
  • It can be shortened to meet the height requirements of various installation situations.
  • It is possible to route wires internally through a hollow building, boosting safety and security.
  • To make continuing identification and maintenance easier, an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device) is placed in the pole during the manufacturing process.
  • It is available in single-piece configurations in sizes ranging from 7.2 to 12.5 metres, and preassembled two-piece configurations in lengths ranging from 14 to 23 metres are also available.
  • Low cost of installation over a long period
  • It is possible to drill and screw into them.
  • Lighter than wood and concrete that makes it so easier to handle and transport
  • Suitable for use in maritime environments or on salty ground conditions.
  • They are also UV Proof which eliminates the cost of maintenance.
  • These poles comply with AS/NZS 4676.
  • These poles have the lowest carbon footprint.
  • There will be no chemical treatments.
  • Maintenance-free – no more painting or re-treating required.

Disadvantages of Titan Composite power poles

  • The Titan Poles have a bigger diameter at the tip of the pole, which is 160mm, and a smaller diameter at the base of the pole, which is 240mm.
