To see the full specifications for our 18 foot 5 inch round tapered hinged base aluminum light pole - 0.156 inch, please click on the highlighted text. Our aluminum light poles are designed to American Association of State Highway & Transportation Officials (AASHTO) standards and meet all applicable material ASTM standards. All welders are American Welding Society (AWS) certified.
This aluminum light pole has a unique hinged-base design which consists of 2 anchor bolt bases connected with a hinge. Both bases mount on a concrete foundation with anchor bolts (provided with each pole free of charge). When the 2 front anchor bolt nuts are loosened and removed, the pole can be lowered all the way to the ground allowing access to the equipment or light fixtures mounted on top of the pole without the need for ladders or lifts. To secure the pole back to the foundation, simply return it to its upright position and tighten the nuts back to the 2 front anchor bolts. The pole includes a cast aluminum base cover to hide the base plate and anchor bolts.
Anchor Bolts and Handhole Covers
This light pole includes anchor bolts made of galvanized steel (Grade 55 meeting AASHTO M314-90 standard) with a bolt circle diameter of 8.5 inches. A reinforced handhole with cover and stainless steel hex-head screws are also included. For your convenience, anchor bolts can be pre-shipped for a nominal surcharge.
Pole Drilling Options
We can drill our aluminum light poles to your specifications at no extra charge.

Our standard aluminum light pole color is Natural Aluminum finish; however, we provide 5 other colors at no extra charge. Our thermoset powder coat process is in accordance with AAMA 2604 classification and is much superior to AAMA 2603 used by other manufacturers. We provide a color chart of available standard powder-coat finishes here. However, we caution that the colors you see on your screen may not be exactly the way they look on the poles and we cannot guarantee exact color.
We offer an extensive list of OEM accessories for our aluminum light poles ranging from transformer bases and GFI receptacle outlets to vibration dampeners. In addition, we do not charge extra for cutting our poles to custom lengths in case what we offer requires customization.
