More about Pole Reinforcement


As a wood pole ages, it can suffer from deterioration and/or damage. For this reason, electricity network poles are required be inspected at intervals no greater than 5 years to ensure adequate safety standards (see PFA inspection services). Where poles are identified to suffer from excessive deterioration at or below ground line, PFA’s MultiTube or MultiRib can be used to bring the pole back up to serviceability standards.
Ground line deterioration weakens a pole and can end in pole failure, whilst high winds or storm events can expedite failure of a weakened pole.

A fallen pole represents extreme danger by exposing people, assets, stock, and surrounding areas to catastrophic risks such as fire or electrocution. It’s not just the power that goes out!
