Composite Poles Provide Wi-Fi Solutions


As utilities and communities race to install Wi-Fi antennas, smart grid and cellular telecommunication technologies, many have turned to Duratel’s composite poles. The Duratel pole offers patented hollow pole design that easily conceals unsightly equipment, while the composite material is virtually transparent to Wi-Fi frequencies.

Duratel utility structures are for siting wireless, cellular, satellite and radio antennas, devices and dishes. The material is engineered to operate seamlessly with wireless and cell signals. Utility poles can now become revenue-generating conduits that provide universal, affordable and attractive access to the Internet.

The small footprint and lightweight design of Duratel composites allows easy access to remote, backyard, wilderness or congested urban areas. Wires, antennas and hardware can be installed internally, eliminating unattractive panels and hardware attachments typically installed on traditional poles and structures while cleaning up cityscapes, skylines and urban areas.

Duratel has conducted extensive third-party testing, verifying compatibility with frequencies up to 5.2 Ghz. The removable top cap allows easy access while providing stealth security for many equipment options.
