Strength and Resiliency Come Standard
Water, salt, coastal air, fog, mist, erosion, high winds, hot or corrosive soils, swampy environments and fire are just a few of the conditions that wreak havoc on most transmission poles—but not spun concrete. It stands up to nearly any conditions—including cold weather. When spinning and pre-stressing are combined, you get concrete poles with the highest density, lowest weight and best strength-to-weight ratio available.
Our attention to design and manufacturing details, matched with the inherent benefits of concrete, are helping utilities around the world discover the undisputed value of our spun concrete poles. With spun concrete poles from Valmont Utility, you get:
- Unsurpassed Durability—With virtually no degradation in even the most severe environments, you can expect your spun concrete poles to enhance the longevity of the power delivery line.
- Strength from Centrifugal Casting—The controlled spinning compacts and increases the already substantial strength of concrete. Pre-stressed strands significantly increase strength and cracking resistance, providing ultimate moment capacities far beyond those found in non-pre-stressed, static-cast alternatives.
- Low Lifetime Costs—Direct burial is used extensively, significantly reducing installation costs. There is no rusting or rotting to monitor, replacements and patches are not needed.
- Patented Splice Joints—They allow us to offer spun concrete poles over 200 feet in height, providing easier installation between pole sections than traditional flange splices.
