The Stronger the Base, the Better the Pole
The ability to “set it and forget it” is a significant driver in the pole purchase decision. And while, large tubular steel poles can support multiple high-voltage lines, these poles can, in turn, require large base plates. To meet the robust material standards required by the industry, conventional base plates with sufficient thickness and widths are difficult to acquire. Which is why forged ring base plates are fast becoming the industry’s preferred alternative to conventional steel base plate construction.
SteelCOR® base plates meet your demands for strength and durability while mitigating the risk of unpredictable supply from traditional steel mills. SteelCOR® yields greater strength and reduces lead time through the advanced engineering techniques provided by Valmont Utility.
