Utilities

At Creative Composites Group, we design and manufacture fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP) structures for various utility applications, such as utility poles, light poles, and crossarms. Compared to those made from traditional materials (e.g., wood, steel, concrete), they offer better resiliency and easier maintenance, both of which make for a superior long-term investment.

Advantages of Using FRP for Utility Projects

There are many reasons why you should choose FRP as a building material for utility projects. For example:

  • It is safe. The material exhibits high dielectric strength, which improves worker safety while enhancing protections again short circuiting. Additionally, it is chemical-free and fire retardant.
  • It is lightweight. The material’s lighter weight compared to traditional building materials makes it cheaper to transport and easier and safer to handle. Additionally, it helps reduce the amount of wear experienced by the finished structure over time.
  • It is available in many designs. The material comes in numerous shapes, sizes, and colors, so project managers can tailor their material orders to the unique specifications of the project.
  • It is pre-engineered to industry standards. The material is manufactured to high quality standards so users can be assured of its performance in their applications.
  • It is easy to maintain. The material resists rotting and damage from termites, woodpeckers, and vermin, making it easy to maintain over time.
  • It is fast to produce and install. The material can be produced up to 15 days faster and installed up to 5 days sooner than precast concrete.
  • It is cost-effective. The material’s shorter production and installation timelines and easier maintenance requirements make it a cost-effective option for long-term utility projects.

Utility Structures

Due to its many advantages, FRP finds use as a building material in many structural applications. At Creative Composites Group, we provide the following FRP utility product solutions:

Utility Product Lines:

Utility Poles

Long-Island-RR-001

STORM STRONG® pultruded composite utility poles are custom designed manufactured to our customers’ unique strength and stiffness requirements. Our FRP distribution poles are available in Classes 1 to 10 and lengths up to 80 feet, while our FRP transmission poles are available in Classes 1 to H6 and various lengths. All StormStrong products are classified as ANSI 05.1 wood equivalent poles and recognized as having the same reliability as steel poles.

Light Poles

Light Poles

We manufacture direct burial light poles for National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard electrical boxes. The poles are manufactured from a toughened polyester resin reinforced with high-strength electrical-grade fiberglass. They can be backfilled with concrete, pole set foam, or gravel. Surface-mounted National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) approved break away and standard bases are available for customers who need surface-mounted poles.
