Even at low speeds, a car crashing into a tree can be fatal. Crashing into an aluminum light pole from Hydro, is a very different matter.

Aluminum saves lives

Hydro's crash-friendly aluminum 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 aluminum pole products since the 1970s. The knowledge we have gained from these tests, has led to a range of safe, secure and sustainable aluminum 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

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 NE3 and HE3 poles have special built-in constructions. No special foundation is required.
