  • Wooden poles are another alternative, however, these are more commonly used for utility poles to support electrical transformers, power lines, antennas for cell communication and wifi routers, etc.

What protective measures prevent damage to light poles?

To extend the lifespan of a light pole, there are a couple of methods that can be used. A powder coat creates a thicker, more durable finish and lasts longer than conventional paint or a bare steel pole. Additionally, on steel poles exclusively, powder coated galvanized finish options are available to help protect steel poles from corrosion.

What is the recommended height for a lighting pole?

This depends on the purpose or the function of the light pole, also known as lighting applications. A street light pole can range from 12 to 25 feet – depending on the size of the road it sits on and how many lanes it has are determining factors. Whereas light poles installed on highways usually require high mast light poles that stand over 50 feet tall. The recommended height for a parking lot light pole is 20-30 feet to ensure that enough area light covers the parking lot and makes it easy for employees, customers, etc. to navigate to and from the parking lot.

What light poles are best for safety?

Security camera light poles are one of the best outdoor lighting solutions, which offers added protection and general surveillance at schools, commercial businesses, hospitals, etc. These light poles can be installed in any parking lot with a security camera mounted to the top. This will ultimately help to ensure the safety of employees, staff, visitors, students, customers, and any other individual arriving or leaving the premises.

Additionally, when it comes to street light poles and best safety practices, transformer base aluminum light poles – also known as breakaway poles – are designed with breakaway points to fall upon impact, such as a car hitting a pole.

What is the most economical light pole choice?

When it comes to finding light poles at affordable prices, steel light poles are the best option. Steel is a cost effective material that can support any size lighting project at the right price.
