Efficient Transportation

The RS pole’s nesting modules mean even the longest RS poles only require standard length trailers and they eliminate the need for slow and expensive long load permits.

See the Truckload Quantity Comparison chart below to review the significant shipping efficiencies that can be realized with RS poles. Depending on pole size, RS modules can also be shipped and stored in 20 ft. [6.1 m] or 40 ft. [12.2 m] intermodal containers for international deliveries and quick deployment after natural disaster damage to the grid. Lightweight RS poles have been air freighted in bulk quantities in emergencies.

Note: The RS pole selector is based on CSA Grade 2 construction with a maximum AGH deflection limit of 22% at class load for tangent and self supporting poles with line angles ≤3°. The M5/6 is not shown in the module tree as it is a base only module that stacks under the M4. The AGH shown is based on a standard embedment assumption of 10% of the pole height plus 2 ft. [0.61m] for poles 40 ft. [12.2m] and over and 10% plus 2.5 ft. [0.76m] for poles less than 40 ft. [12.2m]. The RS pole selector is for demonstration purposes only. Contact RS to confirm the correct pole for your application.
