Ecofibra FRP poles. Resistance and safety in road lighting.

FRP poles are perfect for installation on highways, mainly because of their light weight and high strength. In the event of a vehicle colliding with the poles, the risks to life are much lower than with concrete poles.

Installing FRP poles is also much simpler when compared to traditional poles.  FRP’s low weight substantially facilitates the poles’ transport and installation. And best of all: there is no need to use munck trucks for installation logistics.

Immune to corrosion

Fiberglass poles are completely inert and immune to any type of chemical corrosion (salt water, H2S), generic, galvanic, intergranular or graphitic corrosion that affect metal and concrete poles.

Low maintenance requirement

The external finishing surface is composed of a thermosetting resin-based layer with a UV-A and UV-B inhibitor and anti-flame protection, which gives poles excellent resistance to aging.

Easy transport and installation logistics

As FRP poles are 10 times lighter than concrete poles, this substantially simplifies logistics and installation, making them ideal for coastal regions and hard-to-reach areas.

Lower risk of electrical accidents

Fiberglass has low electrical conductivity. Hence, even if it contains wires with insulation problems, a pole made with this material does not cause electric shock. Even if a car crashes into a FRP pole, the damage to the vehicle and passengers will be significantly lower.

Lightweight and extremely durable

FRP poles are 10 times lighter than concrete poles, are a quarter the weight of steel, and are 25% lighter than aluminum. In terms of life cycle, composites can last more than 50 years.
