Distribution systems worldwide face a range of challenges dependant on the local environment and the traditional design which may have been in use for many decades.
Overhead lines are still a common feature except in very sophisticated systems and where high loads make undergrounding economical. The range of pole type used includes omni directional (round) and rectangular shapes in materials ranging from softwoods, hardwoods, steel, concrete and fibre reinforced polymers.
The Titan pole combines many of the strong features of these pole types and overcomes common problems such as current leakage, rot, rust, fire weight and termite attack. It also allows drilling and other rework after installation so future system development is enhanced.
The Titan range for Distribution and Transmission includes poles from 9m to 21.5m in strengths from 3kN to 40kN. Special pole designs are readily produced to allow for unusual demands (talk to us about requirements for custom poles).

Some rural sites have restricted access and large trucks cannot be used. Special multi part pole designs can be supplied to allow designers to specify standard pole heights and strengths whilst installers are able to bring poles and equipment to site with short tray vehicles.
Poles meeting standard lengths and strengths can be designed and built to meet special installation needs after discussion with the manufacturers.
In other areas, helicopters are often the only practical means of inserting poles and equipment. In these cases the light weight of the Titan pole makes helicopter selection easier.
