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.
There are many reasons why you should choose FRP as a building material for utility projects. For example:
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:
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.
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.
Our STORM STRONG® crossarms are engineered for high reliability. They are RUS approved and National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) compliant. Our deadend crossarms are available in 3-5/8” x 4-5/8” and 4” x 6” rectangular sections, while our tangent crossarms are available in 3-1/2” x 4-1/2”, 3-5/8” x 4-5/8”, and 4” x 6” rectangular cross-sections.
