Standards

standards australiaG&S Industries’ poless are designed and manufactured in compliance with the following Australian Standards:

AS/NZS 4600 Supp 1:1998 Cold formed steel structures – commentary (supplement to AS/NZS 4600:1996)
The cross-sectional configurations, manufacturing processes and fabrication practices of cold-formed steel structural members differ in several respects from those of hot-rolled steel shapes. For cold-formed steel sections, the forming process is performed at, or near, room temperature by the use of bending brakes, press brakes or roll-forming machines. The standard is intended for the design of cold-formed steel structural members to be used for load-carrying purposes making allowances for dynamic effects.
AS 1798:1992 Lighting poles and bracket arms – preferred dimensions
This Standard specifies preferred dimensions for poles which are designed to support luminaries and ancillary equipment for the lighting of roads and other outdoor public spaces. The dimensions specified also apply to joint-use lighting poles and sections of joint-use mast arms which are designed to support luminaries.
AS 4100:1990 Steel structures
This Standard sets out minimum requirements for the design, fabrication, erection, and modification of steelwork in structures in accordance with the limit states design method. This Standard applies to buildings, structures and cranes constructed of steel.
AS 4100 Supp 1:1999 Steel structures – commentary (supplement to AS 4100 – 1998)
The Standard sets out the minimum requirements for the limit states design, fabrication, erection, and modification of safe, serviceable and durable steel structures.
AS/NZS 1170.2:2002 Structural design actions – wind actions
This Standard sets out procedures for determining wind speeds and resulting wind actions to be used in the structural design of structures subjected to wind actions other than those caused by tornadoes.
AMDT 1:2005-06-03 Structural design actions – wind actions
Amendment 1 to AS/NZS 1170.2:2002 - Structural design actions - Part 2: Wind actions.
AS/NZS 1170.2 Supp 1:2002 Structural design actions – wind actions – commentary (supplement to AS/NZS 1170.2:2002)
Provides background material to the requirements of AS/NZS 1170.2, Wind actions. Clause by clause, it gives the origins of requirements, departures from previous practice and explanations with examples to illustrate their application.
AS/NZS 4676:2000 Structural design requirements for utility services poles.
This Standard sets out general requirements for structural design and minimum design loads applicable to pole structures supporting -
  1. street or floodlighting;
  2. road or railway signaling equipment;
  3. aerial conductors carrying electric power, or communication signals;
  4. equipment for communication through the atmosphere; or
  5. any combination of these.
AS 3995:1994 Design of steel lattice towers and masts
This Standard sets out the procedures for determination of design wind speeds and wind loads, and other appropriate standards to be used in the structural design of steel lattice towers and masts, with or without ancillaries such as antennas, for communication purposes. It also applies to other lattice towers and masts where the predominant load is wind load on the structure. It further sets out the basis for the strength assessment of members and connections of lattice towers and masts.
AS 3678:1990 Structural steel – hot-rolled plates, floor plates and slabs
This Standard specifies requirements for the production and supply of hot-rolled structural steel plates and floor plates for carbon and carbon-manganese mechanically-tested steels, fully-killed analysis-only steels, and low-alloy (weathering) mechanically-tested steels.
AS 1554.1:2004 Structural steel welding – part 1: welding of steel structures
This Standard specifies requirements for the welding of steel structures made up of combinations of steel plate, sheet or sections, including hollow sections and built-up sections, or castings and forgings.
AS 4680:1999 Hot-dip galvanized (zinc) coatings on fabricated ferrous articles
This Standard specifies requirements and tests for hot-dip zinc coatings on fabricated ferrous articles including structural steel, steel reinforcements, steel sheet fabrications, assembled steel products, tubular fabrications, and fabricated wire work, steel forgings, steel stampings, ferrous castings, nails and other small components.
AS 3600 – 2001 Concrete structures
This Standard sets out minimum requirements for the design and construction of concrete structures and members that contain reinforcing steel, or tendons, or both. It also sets out minimum requirements for plain concrete members.
