The pole shaft shall be a one section design fabriacted from standard 11 gauge (0.1196") or 7 gauge (0.1793") steel. Each section shall be fabricated from high strength low alloy steel conforming to ASTM A500 Grade B, with minimum yield strength of 46,000 psi for non-tapered poles and 50,000 psi for tapered poles. Each pole will have a full length longitudinal weld and will be square in cross section. Tapered poles will have a uniform taper of 0.11 inches per foot of length.
The base plate is fabricated form 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" 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 exceed minimum yield strength of 55,000 psi. Anchor bolts are sized according to each pole design and re furnished with 2 galvanized heavy hex nuts and 2 galvanized flat washers. Anchor bolts shall be galvanzied a minimum of 4" on the threaded end in accordance with ASTM A-153. Anchor bolts will ship with the poles unless otherwise specified.
