Pole & EPA Assistance

We’ll help you leverage several important factors to find a suitable pole for any installation. View the steps below or download the guide.

Prior to selecting a pole, view fixture pages to determine your desired fixture and its available mounting options. For best results, consider all aspects of your project, including:

  • Environment
  • Structural Supports
  • EPA Ratings
  • Geographical Location of Jobsite
  • Size, Shape & Weight of Fixtures

Step 1

Determine EPA rating for fixtures and mounting methods using the EPA Rating calculator or the drop downs below. (For Direct to Pole configurations see Mount Direct to Pole chart)

Make Selections for Projected EPA Rating

Find the necessary EPA ratings for your installation using the calculator below. Installers are advised to work with an engineering firm to determine suitable pole and EPA load for every installation as regional soil conditions and wind speeds vary.

Note: To find multiple EPA ratings, simply refresh the page in between calculations.

Step 2

Find the geographic wind zone for your jobsite using the Maximum Wind Zone Map
maximum wind zone map
The Maximum Wind Zone Map is included only for reference. Soil conditions can vary substantially within an area. Installers are advised to work with an engineering firm to determine suitable poles and EPA loadings for every installation.

Step 3

Based on the jobsite’s wind zone, select a pole from the Pole EPA Ratings & Product Selection chart that has an EPA greater than or equal to the Fixture & Mounting EPA. This will help to determine the pole height and SKU that is right for your application.

Additional Information for included accessories, shipping, warranty and return policies & more.

Ordering

Regional soil conditions and wind speeds vary - find the necessary EPA ratings for your installation using the calculator below. Installers are advised to work with an engineering firm to determine suitable poles and EPA loadings for every installation.

Pole and Bullhorn Shipping

Freight charges are not included in the price of all e-conolight poles and bullhorns. A complete shipping address must be provided at the time of order (No PO Boxes). Expedited orders cannot be accepted. Because poles and fixtures ship from different locations, e-conolight cannot guarantee arrival of fixtures and poles on the same day. Anchor bolts shipping in advance will incur additional freight charges. Shipping to the continental US only. Customer is responsible for the off loading of product. Please ensure that the ship-to address can accommodate a large truck delivery.

Returns / Restocking and Order Changes

Poles and bullhorns are custom manufactured specifically for each order. They are considered special and CANNOT be modified or canceled once your order has been placed. Once the custom order is placed, it cannot be stopped, and it cannot be refused upon delivery. Pole and bullhorn shipments with damage must be signed for as damaged, and accepted. Contact Customer Service at 1-888-243-9445 after acceptance to resolve any issue. Credit will not be offered on refused shipments.

Anchor Bolts

Partially galvanized anchor bolts and hardware are furnished with each pole. The bolts are made from carbon steel bar conforming to AASHTO and ASTM Grade-55 requirements. Advance shipment of bolts is available for an additional freight charge and must be requested when pole order is placed. Bolts must ship to the same address as the accompanying pole.

Handhole

A rectangular shaped handhole is furnished and includes a steel cover and attachment bar with machine screw. The handhole is located 18-inches above the pole base.

Electrical Ground

A ground lug is provided near the handhole and includes a hex-head bolt and nut.

Base Cover

A standard, full base cover is included with each steel pole and is made from ABS plastic. Its two-piece construction is secured together with two plastic, hand push rivets. Round Tapered Aluminum poles are supplied with nut covers.

Pole Caps

A removable pole cap is included with each pole configured for fixture side mounting or no drill. Poles with tenon top configuration do not include a pole cap.

Paint Finish

All e-conolight poles are mechanically cleaned and coated with an electrostatically applied, baked-on powder topcoat to provide years of worry-free service in the field. All e-conolight poles and bullhorns are painted in dark-bronze to closely match fixtures and mounting options.

Warranty

e-conolight warrants its poles to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period one year from the date of delivery. e-conolight will, at its discretion, repair or replace without charge any returned defective part (FOB factory). The warranty specifically excludes fatigue failure, or similar phenomena, resulting from induced vibration, harmonic oscillation or resonance associated with movement of air currents around the pole.

The above warranties are given in lieu of all other warranties expressed or implied, including and without limitation, the warranty of merchantability and the warranty of suitability for a particular purpose. It is expressly stated that e-conolight assumes no liability for consequential or liquidated damages arising out of a breach of the sale, including any warranties arising therefrom and buyer's remedy shall be limited to repair or replacement of defective parts as described above.

NOTE: EPA ratings for e-conolight poles are rated for use with e-conolight fixtures only. It is the sole responsibility of the customer to carefully select poles based upon the proper mounting configuration and the wind loading of the area where the installation will occur.
