Introduction of FRP road light pole.

2023-09-25

Light weight and high strength:

The specific strength of FRP material is equivalent to that of advanced 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 same specifications of the light pole, the weight of the FRP light pole is about 1/3 of the steel pole, based on this feature, the FRP light pole is particularly suitable for Bridges and other bearing requirements.


Corrosion resistance:

FRP is a good corrosion resistant material, and has good resistance to atmospheric, water and general concentrations of acids, alkalis, salts, and a variety of oils and solvents. Therefore, FRP light poles can be well adapted to the humid and rainy south and coastal cities with high salt content in the air. During the whole service life cycle of the lamp pole, there will be no significant changes in appearance and interior. This point is incomparable to ordinary steel rods.


Good insulation performance:

Fiberglass is a good insulating material and can be used to make insulators. Therefore, there will be no electric shock caused by leakage during the use of FRP light poles. Although the metal light pole is installed with a grounding protection device, it can not avoid foolproof after all. Therefore, FRP light poles have certain advantages in places with high safety requirements (such as sidewalks, parks).

Maintenance free:

Because of its corrosion resistance, the FRP light pole does not require maintenance during the entire life cycle, and its surface is specially sprayed with materials to ensure that there will be no obvious fading for ten years. In the case of the relative shortage of street lamp maintenance funds, it highlights our advantages.


Smooth and beautiful surface:

The surface of the FRP light pole has a good affinity with the outer coating material, so the surface of the formed light pole is very smooth, and it is more beautiful than the ordinary steel pole.


Low installation cost:

FRP light pole because of its light weight, so the installation does not need a crane, in the installation is simple and fast, the impact on traffic is small. In the street lamp project, the labor cost accounts for about 20% to 30% of the total cost, if the use of FRP light poles can effectively reduce the cost of this area.


Strong wind resistance:

FRP material has a slight elasticity, FRP light pole in the typhoon, will produce about 10% amplitude, but this is plastic deformation, after the typhoon, it will still bounce back to the original position, its wind resistance principle is similar to bamboo.
