Pole assemblies must be designed and installed by taking extra precautions to ensure their structural integrity is suitable for the wind conditions in your area. Prior to purchasing and installing any poles, there are a number of steps you need take to guarantee your pole installation adheres to structural, environmental and local practices.
All of Access Fixtures poles and hardware are protected from rust and corrosion with baked-on, polyester powder-coat finishes that help guarantee the ideal hardness and weather resistance. These hassle-free poles are extremely durable, which means years of maintenance-free reliability.
Do you need to color match the poles to match your environment or other fixtures? No problem! Access Fixtures specializes in custom-painted finishes and can custom-color your poles to any RAL color of your choice. If your project has unique mounting requirements, our lighting specialists will help you explore each option to ensure you get an optimal layout and light distribution. Lighting large, open spaces—like basketball courts, soccer fields, rodeo arenas, parking lots, and elsewhere—often requires pole-mounted fixtures.
Access Fixtures offers 4-inch and 5-inch poles in foot, foot, and foot heights and built with steel or fiberglass. Standard poles are stocked and ready to ship, though if your project requires custom poles e.
In any situation, the team at Access Fixtures is prepared to discuss the most reliable, affordable, and reasonable solution for your project. Before deciding on the type and quantity of poles that would be best for you, you should first evaluate the fixture options; they will in most cases have a significant impact on your pole selection. Wind conditions are commonly the greatest concern for pole lighting, and selecting a fixture-and-pole combination that can endure the wind in your location is crucial.
Each luminaire housing has an effective projected area EPAwhich is the exposed surface area of a fixture or bracket, multiplied by its shape factor. Adding multiple fixtures or changing the type of fixture being used will impact the EPA load on the pole; every pole has a maximum EPA rating.
To calculate the total EPA load being placed on a pole, find the product of the EPA measurement for each fixture and the number of fixtures; add it to the product of the mounting hardware EPA and the number of mounting hardware pieces; and add that to the product of the EPA of any wires, signs, or other equipment and the number of those pieces.
Any element that adds weight or surface area to the assembly should be factored into the calculations. By taking these steps, you can be assured that your poles and fixtures will meet or exceed local regulations. More importantly, knowing the data will ensure that your project is safe, secure, and built for longevity. If you are installing poles greater than 25 feet and are in a windy area, take extra caution to ensure the stability of your pole.
Wind-induced vibration is a factor that can affect your poles in certain locations where wind speed is increased. In certain circumstances, it is necessary to take extra precautions to reduce wind-induced vibrations on your light poles, particularly when poles are subjected to high wind speeds.
This can sometimes cause a fracture of the weldtypically between the base plate and pole. If this is a concern, contact an Access Fixtures lighting specialist today.
Burying a steel or fiberglass pole may involve more consideration and planning than you think. Anything buried underground will be subject to a number of corrosive elements that affect the durability of your pole.
These elements include soil types, groundwater, the aqueous phase soil moisturegases, and more. Considerable research and management should be taken into account prior to installing poles.
We recommend contacting a local structural engineer and building inspector, who can carry out an inspection and advise on what can and cannot be done. Factors differ from area to area and your local engineer will know the requirements in relation to the soil conditions and specific codes of your facility. Because these requirements vary so drastically from location to location, Access Fixtures cannot and will not provide specific instructions for below-grade pole installation.
There are a number of variables to consider when selecting the most appropriate poles for your project. Pole height, depth, and diameter are major factors to consider.
The standard pole heights are 20, 25, and 30 feet.Users from our old website: Our apologies for the inconvenience, but if this is your first time visiting our new site you will need to create a new account.

The concrete is reinforced with four 5 vertical and 3 round tie steel reinforcement. They also typically incorporate four galvanized anchor rods and four PVC electrical conduits for mounting and wiring light poles. The big differences are that Pole Base products create savings in time, labor, space, and remedial repairs. Pole Base units are delivered to the job site ready to install and have light poles connected. There is no delay waiting for the bases to be formed, cast, and cured — we all know time is money!
Installation Time: How long does it take to install Pole Base units? Depending upon the soil conditions and equipment, they can typically be installed between 45 and 90 minutes. First, you need to either auger or excavate a hole in the earth. Then, a 6 inch millimeter thick stone foundation is placed at the bottom of the excavation to provide good base support and to fine adjust the final base elevation.
Next, the Pole Base unit is set on the stone foundation, leveled, and backfilled. During the backfilling operation, the site electrical conduit is connected to the embedded conduit in the base. The final step is the backfilling and compaction of the excavation around the Pole Base. Customization is something that Pole Base does best. We build all of our bases to your specification for your particular project.
You are able to specify the concrete finish texture, length 4—12 feet or — millimeterselectrical conduit, anchor rod size and spacing, concrete reinforcement, finished color, etc. Feel free to ask your sales representative if you have a question or suggestion about your specific requirements for your next project.
