GFRP Lighting Poles


Recently Glass Fiber Reinforced (GFRP) Poles have gained popularity in making a lighting infrastructure increasingly efficient. Incorporated with smart internet operated technology based accessories, GFRP Poles could create an intelligent, networked public lighting infrastructure that can change the face of future cities by providing a safe, beautiful and durable structure.

GFRP Poles with its features and benefits could be a good solution to meet Indian government's Smart City initiatives to promote LED and Solar based street lighting.

Aesthetically pleasing, GFRP Poles are manufactured based on the needs from polyester or epoxy resin systems and fiberglass woven rovings. Having good stiffness and axial strength, these poles bring features of non- conductive and non corrosive with more than 65% of the reinforcing fiberglass in the axial vertical plane.

Smart internet operated technology based accessories could also be incorporated. GFRP Poles could complement an intelligent, networked public lighting infrastructure and could contribute to enhancing the "livability" of cities.


  • NON-CORROSIVE – Corrosion resistance to salty climates or alkali /acidic soil conditions, above and below the ground.
  • HIGH STRENGTH: Pound for pound, glass fibers are stronger than steel. GFRP materials gain their strength when fibers are set within a resin matrix. Fibers carry the load while the resin spreads the load imposed on the GFRP composite.
  • LOW MAINTENANCE - Non corrosive and ability to pre pigmented reduces overall cost to maintain
  • LIGHT WEIGHT & COST EFFECTIVE - The lightweight of these poles saves handling, transport and erection costs during installation.
  • NON-CONDUCTIVE – The property of electrical insulation from the material helps prevent accidental electrocution by faulty wiring.
