Transmission and distribution power lines in suburban and rural areas need poles that can withstand harsh environments, inclement weather and vandalism, in order to ensure the continuous supply of electricity. Rocla’s spun concrete transmission and distribution poles are well suited for the exacting requirements of electrical distribution line construction.
The durable, maintenance free spun concrete poles are exceptionally strong through 360 degrees, whereas normal cast concrete poles have a major and minor load axis. The unique centrifugal manufacturing process gives a uniform densely compacted concrete along the whole length of the pole. This gives the Rocla spun concrete pole extra strength properties, not found in cast concrete poles.
Spun concrete transmission and distribution poles offer a cost-effective solution due to small servitude requirements, simple and economic funding methods and a quicker installation turnaround time. They offer a durable, long-term solution with minimal maintenance. Rocla spun concrete poles systems are ESKOM approved and have been tested at Eskom’s Rosherville Testing Station.
A bonus for the farming community as a result of the systems small servitude requirements is that is well suited to intensive farming on high-value land.
Rocla offers a variety of pole lengths in single, jointed and double pole solutions, and Rocla’s engineering technical team are able to customize spun concrete pole solutions to meet specific customer sizing requirements as well as design and manufacture products for non- standard applications.
