Effective and Long-Lasting Alternatives to Wood

Union Metal steel transmission and distribution poles provide an excellent alternative to wood poles with a number of significant advantages and efficiencies. Chief among these is the ability to outperform wood in harsh and even catastrophic weather conditions.

Inclement weather of all types can seriously impact the performance of transmission and distribution lines. Snow and ice add weight. Winds can toss trees onto lines — and in certain conditions, even bring the lines down completely. The strength and durability of steel poles provide a dependable and cost-effective defense against these weather-related threats to an electric utility’s ability to deliver power to its customers.

Additional advantages of steel distribution poles include:

• Uniform metal strength: Provides more consistent and predictable long-term performance

• Corrosion and damage-resistance: Treated and finished steel stands up to the elements and other environmental factors

• Sturdier stance: Steel poles are direct-embedded for most standard applications

• Ecological efficiency: Conform to EPA regulations, eliminate deforestation concerns, and are fully reusable and recyclable.

• Financial Benefits: Lower handling and installation costs with a longer life expectancy and lower life cycle costs.

• Maintenance Reduction: No retightening of hardware is necessary due to pole material shrinkage and poles are not prone to rot or insect and woodpecker damage.
