Slip Base Poles

Slip Base Poles

An innovation in industrial design, this type of special purpose Street Lighting Pole addresses the universal problem of high-speed road accidents (over 60km/h) involving roadside collisions with freeway poles. Due to the optimal safety applications in their use, these poles need to be designed, evaluated and certified by the relevant authorities to meet Australian Standards specifications (AS/NZS 1158.1.3).

Slip Base Poles differ in design which features the two base plates bolted together with the facility of freely coming apart if a crash occurs. This separation lessens resistance and mitigates the overall effects of the impact (any subsequent damage to the vehicle or injury to its occupants).

SLIP BASE (FRANGIBLE) FREEWAY POLES

Slip Base Poles differ in design which features the two base plates bolted together with the facility of freely coming apart if a crash occurs. This separation lessens resistance and mitigates the overall effects of the impact (any subsequent damage to the vehicle or injury to its occupants).

Because Slip Base Poles are intended to dislodge and fall during an accident, their use is restricted to those areas where the likelihood of a resultant secondary incident is reasonably low and passing vehicles or pedestrians are not likely to be implicated
