Light weight and high strength: The specific strength of FRP material is equivalent to that of high alloy steel and its density is 1.5-2.0, which is 1/4-1/5 of carbon steel, and its tensile strength is equivalent. Therefore, the weight of the same size FRP Lighting Pole is about 1/3 of that of the steel pole. Based on this characteristic, the Fiberglass Lamp Pole is especially suitable for the use of bridges and other places with bearing requirements.
Corrosion resistance: FRP is a good corrosion resistant material, which has good resistance to atmosphere, water and general concentration of acid, alkali, salt, oil and solvents. Therefore, FRP Lamp Poles can be well adapted to wet and rainy south and coastal cities with high salinity in the air. During the whole life cycle of the FRP Utility Pole, there will be no obvious change in appearance and interior. This point is incomparable with ordinary steel poles.
Good insulation performance: FRP is a good insulating material, which can be used to manufacture insulators. Therefore, electric shock accidents caused by leakage of FRP Lamp Pole will not occur in the use process. Although the metal lamp pole is equipped with grounding protection device, it can’t be avoided in the end. Therefore, FRP lamp poles have certain advantages in places with high safety requirements, such as sidewalks, parks and so on.
Maintenance-free: Fiberglass Lamp Pole, because of its corrosion resistance, does not need to be maintained in the whole service life, and its surface uses special spraying materials, which can ensure that there will be no obvious fading for ten years. In the case of relatively scarce funds for street lamp maintenance, our advantages are highlighted.
Smooth and beautiful surface: The surface of Fiberglass Utility Pole has good affinity with the outer spraying material, so the surface of the formed lamp pole is very smooth and more beautiful than that of ordinary steel pole.
Installation cost is low: because of its light weight, Fiberglass Lighting Pole does not need a crane when it is installed. It is simple and fast in installation and has little impact on traffic. In street lighting project, the labor cost accounts for about 20%~30% of the total cost. If the FRP lamp pole is used, the cost expenditure can be effectively reduced.
Strong wind resistance: FRP material has slight elasticity. When typhoon comes, FRP lamp pole will produce about 10% amplitude, but this is plastic deformation. After typhoon, it will still rebound to its original position. Its wind resistance principle is similar to that of bamboo.
