Our Facilities

In order to produce the highest quality products, we are equipped with modern machinery and equipment.
Fabrication, Testing and Inspection are all conducted stringently in our state of the art factories and laboratories.

Manufacturing Equipment & Machineries

Materials
For our all steel products are manufactured from high quality structural steel conforming to ASTM A6, A 36, A572 and EN10025. The steel material we use comes from reputable steel mills and mill certificates are submitted in all our Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) reports. For Aluminum pole products are manufactured from high quality aluminum alloy of grade 6063 – T6 tempered for the pole body. The high tensile alloy is produced through an extrusion process with profile specially designed for lighting columns purpose.

Fabrication
From cutting, bending, forming, welding, galvanizing and painting process are all performed in house of Alupole’s fabrication plant. Each and every processes are stationed in such that process flow in production to maximize the production capacity while maintaining product quality. Every stations are monitored individually by QC department who work together with production for ongoing in-process inspection and routine test.
Due to most of Alupole products are shipped worldwide, therefore all product maximum length usually are required to comply with standard container size. For huge structures shall come in multiple sections that joined together during site installation. All product joints in an Alupole product are carefully designed to ensure no connection failure. For aluminum poles, parts are all joined by bolts or special connectors conforming to the requirements of Aluminum Extruders Council, USA. There are no unsightly welding joints on an Alupole product. Our welding finish are of superior quality to ensure long product life. And where required, every care is taken to avoid corrosion due to dissimilar materials. Our pole design utilizes slip joints whereas minimal welding are required compared to ordinary flange joints. With reduced weld area, the probability of any weld defect also minimized thus ensuring the product quality.

Finishing
An Alupole pole product can come in a number of finishes. Because of the corrosion-resistant nature of Aluminum for poles, the finished extrusion product can be used “as-is” without further corrosion protection treatment. However, there are other finishes such as anodizing, epoxy powder coating and painting which are readily available in their respective standard color codes. For steel products, hot-dip galvanizing is normally employed. For additional aesthetic value, a galvanized pole can be applied the additional epoxy powder coating to the required color.

Safety
When it comes to safety, an Alupole product surpasses all others as Alupole products are specially designed with safety in mind. Whilst maintaining and strength during normal service, Alupole also possess superb impact energy absorption characteristics for the “street furniture” products, so that an impacting vehicle would tend to suffer less damage and thus protect its occupants.

QA/QC

Laboratory – Steel Material Test
Third party inspection by independent inspection bodies like SGS, TUV or Moody can be arranged upon request.
Our regular practice required all the incoming raw materials to be internally tested accordingly to ensure the mechanical and chemical properties are as per declared in Steel Material Certificates.

Inspection & Testing
All our towers are trial assembled prior to mass production. Where required our poles and towers can be subject to full-scale type testing. Galvanizing tests are carried out on all our galvanized steel products as part of our ISO 9001:2015 procedure. Continuous routine tests are performed during all stages of manufacturing to ensure overall product compliance & quality
Full scale Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) are performed by the end of production with optional witness by the clients.

Design

Design Standard
We are committed to ensure its products meet the relevant international standards. As such, our technical expertise covers standards for EN40, BS 5649, ILE Technical Report No.7, BS 8100, AS/NZS 1664, AS 4100, AASHTO, ASCE 10-97, ASCE Manual No.72, TIA/EIA-222-F, NSCP 5th Edition, IS 875, and BNBC to name a few. Any other international standards may be considered in the design upon request.

Design Software
Our engineering design utilized among the most dependable design software in this industry such as Staad Pro, Ms-Tower, AutoCAD & also our own internally developed software.
