Transmission Poles

AZZ Galvanizing - transmission poles

Proven Protection for Power Transmission


Transmission poles are among an electrical utility’s largest and most important commercial assets. However, once the corrosion of a galvanized transmission pole occurs, it advances quickly. More critically, as the corrosion of the pole accelerates, so too can the cost of time, labor and materials required.

Galvanizing has experienced common use in the power industry for over 55 years. The strong, durable coating will stand strong against the rigors of constant exposure to wind, rain and sun, keeping the transmission poles standing strong and corrosion-free. Thousands of hot-dip galvanized transmission poles are installed every year and have proven to be a reliable, durable and cost-effective way to transmit power.
