Benefits of wooden poles

Durable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective

Pine trees grow slowly in northern European forests where long winters make the wood especially strong. That is why our wooden poles withstand harsh weather conditions for decades. Benefits of wooden poles include the following:

Storage and transportation
• Low transportation and storage costs, and require a relatively small storage space.
• Wood withstands handling and surface damage.
• No specific packaging is required during transportation. Wood is light and tough. It can also be hauled, even on rugged terrains.

Line requirements, erection
• Wood endures heavy loads. Fewer wood poles than steel or concrete ones are needed per kilometre, which means lower costs.
• Wooden poles can be erected with relatively small-sized equipment.

• Easy to fabricate on site.
• “A” and “H”-shaped models can be constructed on site.

Installation of cables and accessories
• Installation of accessories is easy with screws and bolts.
• Climbing up wooden poles is easily done by professionals.

Electrical properties of wood
• Wood has good insulating properties and is therefore a safer material for poles than steel or concrete.
• Wood may reduce the incidence of electrical breakdowns and power arcs commonly caused by lightning.

Fire resistance of wood
• Creosote-coated poles withstand bush fires without serious loss of strength.

Service life
• Wooden poles have a service life of 40 to 80 years, depending on climate conditions and on an individual pole’s properties.

Dismantling and re-use
• Wooden poles are simple to dismantle and re-use.

Lower impact on the environment
• Our poles come from sustainably managed forests.
• Wood is a renewable raw material.
• Recycling of wooden poles is usually well organized.
