These prestress cement concrete ( PCC ) poles are also used for maintaining the different electricity distribution needs . These PCC poles are essentially made of concrete which are inevitably less costly and more economically maintainable than the conventional steel poles. They are of two types depending upon the end use of poles-low tensile and high tensile line. The latter is primarily used for transmission/distribution of electricity. These poles come in 8mtr, 9mtr & 11mtr length and 200 kg to 400 kg working load capacity .

Raw material used :

  • High tensile wire
  • Cement
  • Galvanized iron wire
  • Stone aggregate

Manufacturing process :

Prestress cement concrete poles are essentially made of concrete. High tensile wire is inserted into the pre-designed moulds and stretched to reach a certain tension . Galvanized wire is fixed inside the mould for earthing following which a right proportion of concrete mix is poured. Then , the concrete is compacted through vibration to produce high strength concrete poles.
