Distribution Poles

Steel poles are becoming more popular with utility companies to replace old wood pole distribution lines.  NELLO now offers a class of “light duty” poles or “wood pole equivalent” structures to meet the growing demand in today’s utility industry.

Some of the advantages of steel poles over wood poles are as follows:
  • Lighter - steel poles are significantly lighter than wood poles
  • More consistent - steel poles do not vary in dimension
  • Longer service life – steel poles are not vulnerable to insects, woodpeckers or other wildlife
  • Cost competitive – steel poles are becoming much more affordable as an alternative to wood
  • Recyclable – steel poles are recyclable after their service life
  • Different appearances - steel poles are available painted, with a traditional galvanized finish, or in weathering steel
With the advantages of steel, utility companies continue to rely on steel distribution poles in place of wood. At NELLO, we offer a full line of standard class poles (click here for our online catalog) for our customers to choose from. Whether you have a small project requiring just a few poles or you have a large project that requires hundreds of structures, NELLO is available to fulfill your needs.
