Pole & EPA Assistance

Got a pole installation coming up? We’ll help you find the perfect pole. Check out the steps below or download our handy guide.

Before you select a pole, make sure to double-check the fixture you want and its available mounting options. Keep in mind things like:

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

Step 1

Figure out your EPA rating for fixtures and mounting methods using the EPA rating calculator or the drop-down menus below. (If you’re looking for Direct to Pole configurations, please see the Mount Direct to Pole chart below.)

Make Selections for Projected EPA Rating

To find the correct EPA ratings for your installation, use the calculator below. For the most accurate ratings, we recommend working with an engineering firm to determine the best pole and EPA load for each installation, since factors like regional soil conditions and wind speeds can change, depending on the location.

By the way, if you’re planning to do multiple calculations, just refresh the page in between each one.

Step 2

Use the Maximum Wind Zone map below to find the right geographic wind zone for your job site.
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

Once you’ve found your job site’s wind zone, select a pole from the “Pole EPA Ratings & Product Selection” section below. Make sure it has an EPA that’s equal to or greater than your Fixture/Mounting Pole EPA. This will help you figure out the correct pole height and product SKU that’s perfect for your application.

Step 4

Here’s where you’ll find more information about accessories, shipping, warranty, return policies, and more.

Ordering

Before you place an order, we recommend working with an engineering firm, since regional soil conditions and wind speeds vary, to find the best poles and EPA loadings for every install. Follow the steps above and use our EPA calculator, for your convenience.

Pole and Bullhorn Shipping

Freight charges are included in the price of our poles and bullhorns. When you place your order, make sure to provide a full shipping address (no PO Boxes) that has enough room for a large truck delivery. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to expedite orders. Since poles and fixtures ship from different locations, we can’t guarantee that both will arrive on the same day.

Note: Anchor bolts ship with every pole order, but they aren’t included with each bullhorn order. If you request that an anchor bolt ship in advance, please be aware that additional freight charges will apply. We ship to the continental US only. Oh, and once the products arrive, you’re responsible for the off-loading.

Returns / Restocking and Order Changes

Poles and bullhorns are custom-manufactured for each order, which means they can’t be modified or canceled once your order is placed. They also can’t be refused at the time of delivery. If a pole and bullhorn arrives damaged, we ask that you sign for it as “damaged” and then contact customer service at 1-888-243-9445. But, keep in mind, if you refuse a shipment, we’re unable to help with a credit.

Anchor Bolts

Partially galvanized anchor bolts and hardwire are made with each pole. How are the anchor bolts made? From a carbon steel bar conforming to AASHTO and ASTM Grade-55 requirements. If you’d like to ship the bolts in advance, please let us know as soon as you place your order. There’s also an additional freight charge involved. Side note: bolts and their accompanying poles have to be shipped to the same address.

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

We provide a ground lug near the handhole, and it includes a hex-head bolt and nut.

Base Cover

You’ll find a standard full base cover, made from ABS plastic, included with each steel pole. Its two pieces are held together with two plastic, hand push rivets. If you order a Round Tapered Aluminum pole, it’ll come with a nut cover.

Pole Caps

Each pole comes with a removable pole cap for fixture side mounting or no drill. If you buy a pole with a tenon top configuration, those don’t include a pole cap.

Paint Finish

All of our poles are mechanically cleaned and coated with a baked-on powder topcoat (electrostatically applied, mind you) that’ll give you years of worry-free operation. Since we like things to match, all of our poles and bullhorns are painted in dark bronze, to match our fixtures and mounting options.

Warranty

This is the best part, so we saved it for last. All of our poles are under warranty and guaranteed to be free of defects, in materials and workmanship, for one year after the date of delivery. If you think you do have a defect, let us know and if the pole qualifies, we’ll repair or replace any defective part for free. What’s not included in the warranty? Glad you asked. Fatigue failure, or anything similar, that results from induced vibration, harmonic oscillation, or resonance associated with movements of air currents around the pole. Bonus points for saying that three times fast.

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 are our poles are only valid for—you guessed it—our poles. We can’t guarantee they’ll work with poles from any other lighting supplier or manufacturer. Also, it’s your job as the customer to pick the right pole based on the right mounting configuration and wind loading of the area where your installation will take place. If you have questions or need help, please call Customer Service at 1-888-243-9445.
