About Creative Composites Group
Creative Composites Group (CCG)supplies innovative Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite products for major infrastructure markets including utilities. We offer FRP composite distribution poles ranging from Class 10 through 1, up to 80 feet in length, and FRP transmission poles from class 1 through H6, in various lengths. The poles are classified as ANSI O5.1 wood equivalent poles. CCG’s combined team of engineers and technicians have been developing lightweight, resilient and cost-effective FRP products for more than 50 years.
Our StormStrong® FRP poles play avital role in storm hardening strategies where high winds demand grid resilience. Unlike wood poles, the StormStrong poles are an engineered product with a low coefficient of variation. Pultruded utility poles feature high reliability when compared to traditionally treated wood poles. In fact, the National Electric Safety Code (NESC 2012) recognizes FRP composite distribution poles as having the same reliability as steel poles.
FireStrong™ FRP utility poles are engineered to last up 75 years in some of the harshest environments with little to no maintenance. Many utility providers are adding fire-resistant poles to harden their grid in fire-prone areas. FireStrong poles are less susceptible to damage and degradation caused by the heat from a fire.
