Impact Absorbing

Street Lighting

    Impact Absorbing

    INGAL EPS has been the largest supplier of street lighting poles to Australian road, power, and council organisations and their contractors for over 40 years. Often being the original designer of the Impact Absorbing poles they now refer to as their own.

    INGAL EPS have been designing and manufacturing Impact Absorbing poles since 1979, and were the first to have the designs tested to the relevant standard (AS/NZS 1158.1.3) for both 60km/h and 110km/h zones. Under design criteria and circumstances, the poles will stop a vehicle and minimise the force on the vehicle’s occupants. The pole remains attached to the base structure and absorbs impact energy progressively, entrapping the impacting vehicle as the pole deforms. An impact absorbing pole looks similar to a normal rigid pole, but features innovative vertical slots at the base to create a cushioning effect if the pole is hit by a vehicle. Standard height and outreach lengths vary according to relevant authority specifications.
