Like other cement based products, Titan poles and piles are naturally resistant to deterioration and no preservative chemicals are needed to ensure long life. Leaching of chemicals used to preserve timber poles against rot can be an unwanted risk for farmers and land holders of all types. The Titan pole eliminates the risk and the replacement of steel reinforcing by inert glass fibre even removes pollution by rust products.
A common problem faced by the whole world is the risk of global warming and the carbon footprint of all products is a modern concern. The power poles used in Australian electricity distribution systems were considered by an external analyst and the resultant report is here.
The Titan pole is a wise decision for utilities seeking to reduce their carbon footprint due to the expected long life span.
