Galvanized  Steel  Distribution  Poles  Thumb

The steel utility pole is a highly engineered product. It is designed to American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) criteria, National Electric Safety Code (NESC) minimum load requirements, and uses material and manufacturing to ASTM International specifications and welding to American Welding Society (AWS) specifications. The result is an extremely strong and reliable product with uniform dimensions and strength, but without twists, knots, splits or bows. Through design, steel is a lighter product opposed to other construction methods, which reduces the cost of transportation, handling and constructions. It also allows it to be versatile within a variety of different locations and climates.
