GRP lighting and utility poles
Glass reinforced polyester poles are manufactured with polyester resins and fiberglass reinforcement with filament winding production lines. GRP represents the ideal solution for utility and lighting poles, because they combine corrosion resistance, reduced weight and long life span.
Brief production process description
The Technobell discontinuous filament winding line is the best solution for manufacturing advanced GRP poles.
This machine, equipped with up-to-date software, is the most important special-purpose equipment in our GRP production line, and it is used for winding the structural layer at predetermined angles.
Our automated machine enables the user to achieve accurate winding parameters, will guarantee high winding speed, reduce raw materials waste and ensure long lasting mechanical strength of the produced poles.
The key properties that contribute the advantages of GRP poles can be summarised as follows:
- High ultimate strength
- Corrosion resistance
- Long virtually infinite life span
- Workability of the finished product on site
- No major traffic diversion during installation
- Flame and UV resistance
- Environmentally friendly
- Elevated safety levels in case of collision
