The pole shall be a one section design fabricated from standard 11 gauge (0.1196") or 7 gauge (0.1793") steel. Each shall be fabricated form high strength low alloy steel conforming to ASTM A-572 with minimum yield strength of 55,000 psi. Each pole will have a full-length longitudinal weld and will be cylindrical in cross-section, having a uniform taper rate of 0.14" diameter change per foot of length.
The base plate is fabricated from a structural quality hot rolled carbon steel plate that meets or exceeds ASTM A-36 with a minimum yield of strength of 36,000 psi. The base plate telescopes the pole shaft and is circumferential welded top and bottom. The base plate has slotted bolt holes.
A reinforced hand hole, having a nominal 3" x 5" or 4" x 6.5" opening will be installed 18" above the base plate on all poles. A hand hole cover and attaching hardware is included with each hand hole assembly. A ground lug will be welded either on the hand hole frame or on the inside of the pole opposite the hand hole depending on the design.
Anchor bolts are fabricated from a commercial quality hot rolled carbon steel bar that meets or exceeds minimum yield strength of 55,000 psi. Anchor bolts are sized according to each pole design and are furnished with 2 galvanized heavy hex nuts and galvanized flat washers. Anchor bolts shall be galvanized with a minimum of 4" on the threaded end in accordance with ASTM A-153. Anchor bolts will ship with the poles unless otherwise specified.
