StressCrete Pole Wins!

    Monday, August 1st, 2016 - 8:00 AM

Some amateur video was recorded in Mississauga, Ontario atop the Absolute Towers showing a high speed police chase. During the chase, the fugitive driving a black sedan, collides with a StressCrete spun concrete pole.

The car's impact with the pole occurs a little after one minute into the video. As you will see by clicking the link below, it was a substantial collision yet it does not affect the concrete pole nor the multiple electrical circuits attached to it.

Imagine if it was a weaker wood pole and it fell down possibly cascading to other poles down the line at a major intersection. It could have resulted in injuries and/or loss of life, power outages, and costly damage to the utility's distribution grid. StressCrete concrete poles withstand the test of time including direct impacts with automobiles!
