Glass fibre poles whip around in the wind...
Due to the unique process of glass filament winding,
standard BEKA Schréder GRP poles are designed to
withstand a wind pressure of 500 Pa on a projected
luminaire area of 0.20m2. Some of our most satisfied
customers are situated in coastal environments subjected
to high winds. All BEKA Schréder GRP poles are designed
and manufactured with a safety factor of 2,5.
Glass fibre poles are deteriorated by sunlight...
The ultraviolet rays in sunlight will deteriorate only
unprotected glass fibre. This has been eliminated by
pigmenting the resin and the application of a polyester
gel coat with UV inhibitors to the surface of the pole
Glass fibre poles cannot support big headloads...
Each BEKA Schréder glass fibre pole is individually
engineered by factoring in the weight, projected area and
windloading requirements of the installation site. The
most demanding installation is easily achieved by a pre-
engineered BEKA Schréder glass fibre pole.
Glass fibre poles are made out of plastic...
BEKA Schréder glass fibre poles are manufactured by the
filament winding process where continuous glass rovings
are fed through a polyester resin bath and wound at
an even tension onto a rotating mandrel, resulting in a
mass glass to resin ratio of 70:30, making full use of the
tensile strength of the glass filament which is more than
that of steel.
