Sabre Tubular Structures offers a light duty line of standard class poles designed to ANSI requirements. These poles satisfy the needs of cooperatives governed by RUS requirements, and investor-owned utilities that specify a “wood-pole equivalent” structure. Concerns regarding severe weather, woodpecker damage, accessibility issues in remote areas, and simple environmental issues have increased the need to replace wood poles with steel versions.
The company also provides an interactive MS Excel-based worksheet that lets users input basic design criteria, such as required height and embedment depth. The software then calculations a design for each pole class ranging from Class 3 to Class H9. In addition, input fields for fixity point below ground and “near pole top” lets users review diameter and moment capacity at each location to determine the pole class best suited to a project.
