Hand finishing of poles at Vicpole Galv Finishing Section – THE VICPOLE WAY – ATTENTION TO DETAIL.
A Vicpole pole is not just a pole. Our commitment to the highest standards of quality is reflected in the finish of our products. Vicpole hand finishes every pole and uses the best non-carcinogenic coating system approved by the industry. Our Acrathane painting system formulated by Dulux, is a graffiti resistant protective coating which ensures longevity in any environment and maintains the pole aesthetic for years to come.
Structural integrity is a part of any Vicpole pole design. All ornamental transitions are structurally welded ensuring a long life and minimizing the possibility of pole ingress by moisture, dust and bugs.
A Site layout in AutoCAD format is all that’s required to get the ball rolling. In providing luminaire analysis, we include spacing tables for a range of road widths, isolux diagrams to given scales and mounting heights, completing the lighting design package.
