Commercial & Industrial Concrete Light Poles.
If you are an architect, lighting design specialist, or civil engineer in charge of proposing a parking lot lighting system, consider the many benefits the concrete light poles can equip you to pass on to your clients. Contrary to the preconceived ideas that many individuals in the general public may have in regards to the viability of concrete as a viable material source for a lighting pole, the reality is that concrete lighting poles are some of the most reliable, versatile, safe, maintenance free, and rugged street, decorative, or sports lighting poles you can propose in a bid.
This is due to a number of key features that make concrete lighting poles unique in terms of both performance and competitive advantage. One of the most important advantages they give to time-sensitive projects is versatility and ease of installation. Concrete lighting poles can either be affixed to a concrete pole base or buried in the ground. This offers a clear advantage to any contractor bidding outdoor for a client that has a parking lot next to a park or manicured, custom landscape. In such an instance, the client can choose from any number of Easy Rack decorative pole designs, and the same concrete poles can be installed both throughout the park area and throughout the appropriate sections of the parking lot. This unites function, aesthetic, human engineering, and Nature into a more harmonious presentation, and can often tip the scales in your favor in a tight, competitive bidding situation. One point you may want to emphasize if you find yourself in such a situation is that concrete poles, contrary to what many assume, actually offer more decorative options than standard metal lighting poles provide. If it comes down to a tight race between the three closest bids, show your client all the Easy Rack models in decorative concrete poles, and give them more options than your competitor’s proposal can deliver.
Your clients will also save money in the future if they accept your proposal of concrete lighting poles now. Concrete does not corrode the way metal eventually does, and lighting poles made from concrete are normally made from compacted concrete that is cast around a high-tensile steel core that can adds compression to the concrete as it cools and makes the pole more flexible and sturdy at the same time. Generally speaking, concrete light poles of any design or height will offer greater resistance to high wind speeds and reduce the financial setbacks of any attempts at sabotage or vandalism—simply because they are very difficult to damage even if someone deliberately attempts to deface them.
Concrete built by the Romans still stands in places 1,500 years after the Empire fell, and even though no one has ever rebuilt it, no one has ever torn it down.
Because Easy Rack concrete lighting poles are manufactured with a highly efficient process at minimal overhead, concrete poles are often sold at a lower price point than many decorative metal pole equivalents. This represents a fantastic opportunity to pass savings on to your client in the form of superior equipment that costs less money to make and takes less time to install in either soil or base-plate concrete mounts. Equally important, concrete is environmentally friendly because it produces no toxic by products that can harm wildlife, humans, plants, gardens, or trees.
Last, but certainly not least, the law mandates that poles over 50 feet high be made from concrete. Metal, no matter how sturdy, simply cannot guarantee sufficient wind resistance to be completely safe at this height. This is why so many sports arenas, stadiums, civic centers, and even municipalities come to Easy Rack for concrete lighting poles that will elevate fixtures to the desired height in full compliance with AASHTO, ACI, ASTM and UBC loading requirements.

We are here to empower the contractor to offer them as a value added option to any client, anywhere in the country.
