Geotek offers PUPI fiberglass pole top extension
By Alyssa Dalton
November 7, 2013 – Geotek has introduced a new fiberglass pole top extension, adding to its line of PUPI fiberglass electrical distribution and transmission products.
The PUPI pole extensions are attached to the top of utility poles to add 36 in. to 72 in. of additional height. They are constructed of light weight 5-in. X 5-in. fiberglass beams bolted to a galvanized steel mounting bracket. The mounting bracket can be attached to the top of nearly any pole with a diameter range of 6 in. to 10 in. Available in grey or brown colour, PUPI pole extensions are completely sealed with a rigid closed cell foam that permits field drilling and excludes moisture, says Geotek. According to the company, fiberglass resists insects and woodpeckers, and will never rot and unlike steel, fiberglass is an excellent insulator that will never rust or need re-coating.
