Round Straight Steel Embedded Poles

The lighting standards listed here are designed for direct-burial applications. Standards mounted on structures require factory consultation — contact our Project Management team for exact catalog numbers and pricing of such poles.

Pole Shaft Specifications

The pole shaft is one-piece construction — fabricated from a weldable-grade carbon steel structural tubing with uniform wall thickness. The pole shaft material shall conform to ASTM A-500 Grade B with a minimum yield strength of 46,000 psi. It has a full-length longitudinal resistance weld and is uniformly round in cross section.

Direct Burial

An optional alkali-resistant coal tar epoxy can be applied to the burial portion of embedded poles. Our direct burial poles are supplied complete with a 2×4″ wiring slot below grade.
