Mechanical Tests

Testing of poles to determine strength and deflection rating is defined by AS/NZS 4676 and AS/NZS 7000. More than 300 full scale destructive tests have been carried out by Dulhunty Poles to prove design and production of poles  from 9m to 17m in strengths from 3kN to 40 kN.

Other mechanical testing includes pull out testing of various screw and bolt types, Testing of new products and designs is a continuing activity and new tests including proof of suitability for attachment of  Footpath Stays have been carried out in recent weeks.

Dulhunty Poles also offers a load bearing pole cap which accepts 24mm threaded insulator rods and test results demonstrate that it withstands loads of more than 6.4kN.m.
