The designs of ReliaPoles meet the customer requirements as well as the local regulations and standards. Our target design shall be perfect combination of structural reliability, lifecycle cost economy and aesthetics by considering environment surrounding, material availability, manufacturability, handling, transportation, maintenance with tools of DFMA( Design for Manufacturing and assembling).
International design standards and manuals for pole structures:
AASHTO LRFD LTS-1: LRFD specifications for Structural Supports for highway signs, Luminaries and Traffic Signals
ASCE/SEI 48-11: Design of Steel Transmission Pole Structures
ASCE Manual 113#: Substation Structure Design Guide
ANSI/TIA-222-G: Structural Standard for Antenna Supporting Structures and Antennas
Chinese design standards and manuals for pole structures:
Code for design of high-rising structures(GB 50135-2006)
Standard for design of steel structures(GB 50017-2017)
Technical regulation for design of steel transmission pole(DL/T 5130-2001)
Technical specification for steel communication monopole (CECS 236:2008)
technical requirements for high-mast lighting (CJ/T 457-2014)
Code for acceptance of construction quality of high-rising structures (GB 51203-2016)
Project Consulting:
China has enormous manufacturing capacity especially on the infrastructure construction and most companies are willing to enter the international market. ReliaPoles can help Chinese enterprises to adapt the international standards and specifications. Also we can help the enterprises out of China to find the proper manufacturing resource.
Research and study:
Even though there are a lot of successful engineering practice and experience in the pole industry, we are still need do more theoretical research and study in particular topics like slip splice, flange connection, wind induced vibration on tubular elements, etc. We had done some studies and would like do more and have the achievements applying on certain projects.
New product development:
Infrastructure construction is an everlasting market. Different industries are changing with different speed. As we see, the trend for pole structures will be characteristic, integrated and environmental friendly. More pole structures will be joint used, aesthetic and smart linked.
