The new Shakespeare capabilities brochure for outdoor composite light poles and accessories is available for download. This 8-page document provides an excellent overview of Shakespeare's broad line of fiberglass-reinforced composite light poles and lamp posts for street & area lighting and other outdoor lighting projects.
Shakespeare Tuff-Pole® outdoor light pole products start with a specially engineered filament winding process, utilizing manufacturing equipment developed, built and engineered in house. Strands of fiberglass are impregnated with pigmented resin and spirally wound onto a rotating, heated mandrel. The winding is precision applied under continuous, uniform tension, and computer controlled for precision and repeatability - a Shakespeare innovation.
The result is a super-strong, one-piece, composite pole with a uniform surface. The poles contain a minimum of 65 percent fiberglass - maximum 35 percent resin - by weight. Shakespeare formulates UV-inhibitors into the resin itself, as part of a thorough, systematic approach to UV protection.
