Reinforced vibrated concrete poles (HV)

HV reinforced vibrated concrete poles have a truncated pyramid exterior geometry with an I type section. The two first metres from the crux are the rectangular section with there being reinforcement every 50 cm along the pole, which makes sections also be rectangular at these points.

Adhorna manufactures all its poles with a 2.25 UNE 207016 compliant flexural strength.

The HV poles are set by their total length and for their useful load; for example:

HV 250 R 11 "Vibrated Concrete post, 250 kg useful load, Reinforced, 11 m total length."

For quick identification of posts on the top part, they will be painted with an identifying colour based on their useful load: 160 kg, orange, 250 kg, black, 400 kg, blue, 630 kg, red, 800 kg, yellow, 1,000 kg, 1,600 kg green and white.

Reinforced vibrated hollow concrete poles (HVH)

Reinforced vibrated hollow concrete poles (HVH)

The distinguishing features of this type of post over traditional reinforced vibrated HV type concrete are:

  • Increased resistance to iso-resistant torsion
  • Highest useful loads
  • Iso-resistant structure independent of the post face

Poles are in a truncated pyramid shape, squared section, octagonal hollow shape interior.

The safety factor for flexural strength is 2.25 as required by UNE 207016 regulation.

HVH poles are set by their total length and for their useful load; for example:

HVH 3500 N 17 "Vibrated Concrete post, 3500 kg useful load, Reinforced, 17 m total length."

For quick identification of posts on the top part, they will be painted with an identifying colour based on their useful load: 1,000 kg, yellow, 1,600 kg, white, 2,000 kg, orange, 2,500 kg, black, 3,000 kg, blue, 3,500 kg, 4,500 kg, green.
