Corrosion testing of public lighting poles

The fall of support for public lighting is almost always caused by corrosion. These events are more common than one may think, and they can have extremely serious consequences for the institution that takes care of the management. Cases of human lives’ loss caused by this phenomenon happened recently in some Italian and foreign cities:

Centrotest Srl has been active for more than 20 years in this field, with a total of more than 1.000.000 supports controlled so far, and an experience that puts us as a leading company in Italy. The techniques that we use for the measurement of corrosive phenomenon are the following:

In addition to the support of public lighting, we also perform checks on:

  • Towers pods for public lighting
  • Poles support cables
  • Flagpoles, traffic light poles, road signs
  • Reinforcing bars of reinforced concrete
  • Uprights of lattices for transporting electricity or to support antennas for telecommunications
  • Supports the power cables of the railway networks
  • Fixing bolts of towers pods
