Fiberglass Pole Top Extension

GEOTEK introduces a new fiberglass pole top extension, adding to the company’s line of PUPI fiberglass electrical distribution and transmission products.

PUPI pole extensions are attached to the top of utility poles to add 36 inches to
72 inches (914 mm to 1,829 mm) of additional height. They are constructed of lightweight yet extremely strong 5-inch by 5-inch (127-mm by 127-mm) fiberglass beams bolted to a galvanized-steel mounting bracket. The mounting bracket can be attached to the top of nearly any pole with a diameter range of 6 inches to 10 inches (152 mm to 635 mm). PUPI pole extensions are completely sealed with a rigid closed cell foam that permits field drilling and excludes moisture.

Geotek pole-top extensionPUPI fiberglass pole extensions are easy to handle and install, and are constructed of engineered materials, so their strength is consistent. Fiberglass resists insects and woodpeckers, and will never rot. Unlike steel, fiberglass is an excellent insulator, it never rusts or needs re-coating. PUPI pole top extensions are maintenance free, with a service life designed to match or exceed any pole material.

PUPI pole extensions feature SunGUARD UV-resistant coating, which is thermally bonded to the surface, forming a protective layer that stays smooth and is projected to protect the fiberglass from intense sunlight for more than 60 years. Exclusive TorqueGUARD bushings reinforce holes for added strength and prevent any possibility of damage during hardware installation.
