FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions


Agents in other states

Do you have agents in other states?

Unfortunately we do not have agents in other states.  However, due to our continued relationship with large national freight forwarders, we are able to ship to almost any destination in Australia at a very competitive rate.


Foundations

What is the difference between a pile and a slab foundation?

- Pile foundations are the standard option offered by most pole manufacturers.  They are narrow, deep and the easiest way to install a pole foundation.

- Slab foundations are used mainly when a pile foundation cannot.  This may be because of rock formations or a high water table which impede the drilling of the pile foundation hole.  For this reason slab foundations are wider and shallower.


Galvanizing

What is Hot Dipped Galvanizing?

It is the process of immersing fabricated steel in a bath of molten zinc.  Once this layer of molten zinc solidifies, it provides a layer of protection against corrosion.

Are the poles Hot Dipped Galvanized?

Yes, all of our poles and accessories are Hot Dipped Galvanized.
