Fiberglass Poles
« on: October 07, 2015, 09:39:01 AM »
Anyone have any idea of supplier in Ireland for fiberglass poles?
Ideally fiberglass scaffolding...3-4m length, 50-60mm outside diameter.
Telescopic fishing poles not an option, need somthing strong enough to carry VHF yagi.

The esb use a red ducting that is approx 50mm and is easilly got trough the trade. ive often thought of filling a section of it with expanding foam to give it extra strenght.
i have some tetra antennas which are approx 3mtr long and are made of 50mm fibreglass.
based in dublin if its any use to you.
see link below.

The 50mm pvc would sag in the enviorment i am considering.
The tube for the colinier looks about right but I be pretty sure wall thickness is very thin as it is more a rigid weather proof case for hardware within it.
What I need is about 2-3m of 50mm with a wall thickness of at least 3mm. The pole is to support a 2m 10 element XY yagi at one end, a 17 element XY yagi for 70cm on the other and a log pereodic in the middle next to rotator. The strength of the pole would need to be close to similar pole in tubular steel.
Thanks for the offer and suggestion,

Why won't you consider acquiring an ex military fibreglass masts like 5.4 meter one or 8 meter one?

But it's costing  €111 plus €65 shipping, a bit on the expencive side.
