Creative Composites Group provides pultruded composite utility poles, custom fabricated to meet your strength and stiffness requirements. They 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. StormStrong poles play a vital 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.
Most customers choose the StormStrong poles over wood, steel or concrete poles for applications where lightweight, limited access and corrosion resistance are important. The Powertrusion fiberglass composite distribution and transmission poles will not rot, rust, spall or succumb to termites or woodpeckers. The fiberglass poles will not leach chemicals into the environment, nor do they contain chemicals or additives (like Penta) that could be detrimental to human contact.
Although much newer than wood FRP utility poles are a mature product well beyond first-generation technology, backed by more than three decades of data on its success and reliability. FRP poles are more available than wood utility poles and should be considered right alongside wood as a suitable material for utility poles. StormStrong utility poles offer superior strength and resiliency as well as the ability to be produced sustainably on-demand with shorter delivery times.
