Small Difference in Price. Big Difference in Value.
Because they are considered inexpensive, it’s easy to overlook the fact that wood poles often fall victim to their surroundings (rot, insects, birds, fire), require regular inspections and can’t provide uniform strength. Factors like storms, extreme soil conditions, salt and high humidity mean wood poles aren’t even considered for certain lines. We’d like to offer you an alternative to wood distribution poles—one that offers the low cost but provides much more value.
Static cast concrete poles are made from consistent and natural inert materials (water, sand and cement), which makes them highly resistant to sunlight, animals and insects, chemicals and airborne corrosive elements such as salt and moisture. Concrete structures don’t require additional foundations, which saves time and money on material, labor and anchor base costs. It’s also possible to employ static cast concrete poles in long crossings, and even in places that periodically hold standing water.
For nearly the same cost as wood, static cast concrete offers so much more:
- Cost-savings, requiring little to no maintenance
- Aesthetic designed
- Extreme durable
- Resistance to salt or moisture
- Reduced lead time
- Direct burial with no additional foundation required
- Custom strength design available
- Large range of sizes
- Capacity to complete large projects
- Advanced quality control systems
