Crash-friendly aluminium poles
Even at low speeds, a car crashing into a tree can be fatal. Crashing into an aluminium light pole from Hydro, is a very different matter.
Aluminium saves lives
Hydro's crash-friendly aluminium poles reduce the risk of personal injuries after a collision, thus increasing road safety.
To develop the safest constructions for our roads, we have conducted crash tests on our aluminium pole products since the 1970s. The knowledge we have gained from these tests, has led to a range of safe, secure and sustainable aluminium solutions that meet all your lighting needs, while being crash-friendly and reducing the risk of personal injuries after a collision.
Crash-friendly poles make roads safer
Depending on your needs, we offer passive safe poles, such as:
- Light poles
- Traffic signal poles
- Sign posts
- CCTV poles
We can offer a complete range of passive safe products (HE, LE, NE). The poles are tested according to EN 12767, and are certified according to EN 40/EN 12899. The NE-B (formerly NE3) and HE-C (formerly HE3) poles have special built-in constructions. No special foundation is required.
Expertise in passive safety
Expertise and years of experience in the execution of crash tests have contributed to the creation of a Whitepaper about passive safe light poles and support structures. We are happy to share our knowledge with you.
