Types of telephone poles


Telegraph poles are structures that can be seen everywhere in our daily lives. They strung cables high up to provide us with power and communications.

Types of telephone poles

Telephone poles are not static. Depending on the material and shape, telephone poles can be divided into the following types:

Wooden telegraph pole: This is the earliest type of telegraph pole, using wood as the main material, sometimes with steel wires to pull the auxiliary to prevent collapse. Wooden utility poles are cheap and easy to install, but are susceptible to corrosion, insect infestation and fire and have a short lifespan.

Cement telephone pole: This is currently the most common type of telephone pole, using cement as the main material, with steel bars or steel cables added inside to enhance strength. Cement poles are durable and low-maintenance, but are heavier and require professional equipment to install.

Iron telegraph pole: This is a relatively special type of telegraph pole that uses an iron frame as the main structure and is often found in suburbs or high-voltage power transmission situations. Iron poles have high strength and are not easily affected by the environment, but are more expensive and prone to electromagnetic interference.

Composite material pole: This is a new type of telephone pole that uses composite materials such as glass fiber and carbon fiber as its main components. It has the advantages of lightness, high strength, and corrosion resistance. Composite material poles are suitable for various environments and occasions, but they are more expensive and have higher technical requirements.
