06 Mar New PUPI® Fiberglass Pole Top Extension Provides Cost-effective Alternative to Pole Replacement
PUPI® introduces a new fiberglass pole top extension, adding to our line-up of leading PUPI® fiberglass electrical distribution and transmission products.
PUPI® pole top extensions are attached to the top of utility poles to add 36 to 72 inches of additional height. They are constructed of light weight, yet extremely strong 5″ X 5″ fiberglass beams bolted to a galvanized steel mounting bracket. The mounting bracket can be attached to the top of nearly any pole with a diameter range of 6 to 10 inches. Available in either gray or brown color, PUPI® pole top extensions are completely sealed with a rigid closed cell foam that permits field drilling and excludes moisture.
PUPI® pole top extensions are a very cost-effective way to increase clearance, add conductors or repair pole tops without the expense of replacing the entire pole. They are extremely durable and can be used to support virtually any type of pole line hardware.
PUPI® fiberglass pole top extensions are lighter weight than wood, so they are easier to handle and install. They are constructed of engineered materials, so their strength is consistent – and it stays that way over time. Fiberglass resists insects and woodpeckers, and will never rot. Unlike steel, fiberglass is an excellent insulator, it never rusts or needs re-coating. PUPI® pole top extensions are truly maintenance free, with a service life designed to match or exceed any pole material.
PUPI® pole top extensions feature exclusive SunGUARD® UV resistant coating which is thermally bonded to the surface, forming a protective layer that stays smooth and protects the fiberglass from intense sunlight for 60+ years. Exclusive TorqueGUARD™bushings reinforce holes for added strength and prevent any possibility of damage during hardware installation.
