What are Composite Utility Poles?

Composite utility poles are a synthetic man-made material engineered and manufactured. The product is very strong and durable, achieving the same structural strength as a Class 2 Wood pole.

Composite wood poles have many advantages including the following:

  • Lightweight: they are 20% the weight of steel and 40% that of treated timber making them easy to handle and install.
  • Strength: Extremely high strength-to-weight ratio
  • Stable: Composite poles are chemically inert
  • Environmentally stable: extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Longevity: does not rust or rot. Unlike wood, composite poles do not rot, warp, or require regular treatment for pests or weather resistance.
  • Safety: non-conductive
  • Installation: quick and easy
  • UV Resistant
  • Corrosion: composite poles do not corrode like steel, making them more durable in coastal or harsh weather areas.
  • Lower shipping charges: you can fit many more of these poles on a long bed truck, and it rarely requires heavy equipment to offload them.

How are Composite Utility Poles Made?

These poles are made by composite utility pole manufacturers using a specialized process under strict controls and quality guidelines. A combination of resin and fibers is molded together under extreme heat and pressure to form the basis of the pole. The poles are hollow and the main reason why they weigh significantly less than their wood, metal, and concrete counterparts. Yet they are incredibly strong and compete favorably against wood, concrete, and steel in terms of what they can handle and hold.

Where Can I Buy Composite Utility Poles?

How is Composite Utility Poles Stress Rated?

Each pole is designated a class, which is an ANSI designation of strength and durability. Typically speaking, the lower the class number, the stronger the pole.
