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
  • 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. 

*HE = high energy absorbing, LE = low energy absorbing, NE = non energy absorbing

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.
