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: high energy absorbing (HE) poles, low energy absorbing (LE) poles, and non energy absorbing (NE) poles. The poles are tested according to EN 12767, and are certified according to EN 40/EN 12899. 

Expertise in passive safety

Our expertise and years of experience in the execution of crash tests have led us to produce a whitepaper about passive safe light poles and support structures. We are happy to share our knowledge with you.
