Street lighting poles are anchored to concrete foundations using large, galvanized anchor bolts. Many of these projects are federally funded, requiring the anchor bolts, nuts, washers, and plates to be 100% domestically manufactured.
Kailey Tillman has created Portland Bolt’s newest microsite, www.lightpoleanchorbolts.com. This website provides technical information regarding the application, configuration, specifications, and hot-dip galvanized coating required for these specialized anchor bolts.
Portland Bolt’s 85,000 square foot manufacturing facility is designed to produce domestic light pole anchor bolts with short lead times and outstanding quality. Does your project require galvanized anchor bolts for lighting poles? If so, call Kailey or one of our other experienced estimators.
