Application Guidelines

Aveng Infraset concrete poles and masts are manufactured in ISO 9001-2008 accredited factories in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Northern Cape. They are available in a wide range of strengths and sizes designed to fill most MV and LV line requirements, and comply with Eskom DTC 0106 and various SABS and Transnet specifi cations.

Application and installation guidelines must be followed to ensure that poles and applications are properly matched.
