Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) or "composite" poles have been in use since the early 1960's, when they were first installed in Hawaii as a solution to wood pole degradation and steel pole corrosion occurring due to the moist salt air environment. Since those early days, significant advances have been made in composite pole technology to the point where today composite poles are increasingly being used in many power distribution, power transmission and lighting applications. With their high… CONTINUE READING
