Prestressed Concrete Poles

Busck first started manufacturing concrete power poles over 40 years ago.  In 1999 Busck updated our pole designs to meet the then draft standard AS/NZS4065.

Our current pole sizes range from 7.5m up to 18.5m long. All poles are fitted with equipotential bonding points, which meet the requirements of the EEA’s guide for working on de-energised lines. Busck poles can be supplied with or without the added safety option of paint and reflectors before leaving the factory. Busck poles are prefitted with six digit uniquely numbered asset id.

All Busck poles are manufactured to AS/NZS 4065, AS/NZS7000 and are tested to AS/NZS 4676.

Busck pole ratings are based on ultimate limit state strength across line and most have an along line rating of at least 30% of the across line rating. This feature exceeds that required in AS/NZS4065 and along with the poles flexibility, assist to limit cascade failure. All rates are ultimate limit state. Busck poles are used at voltages from 230V up to 110kV lines across New Zealand, from the winterless north to heavy snow and frost areas of the South.
