Polesaver Fire Fabric effectively protects your poles, reducing outages, safety risks and costly pole failures and replacements
Polesaver Fire Fabric is a low cost way of protecting your utility poles from low-level bush, crop and grass fires
Polesaver Fire Fabric is quickly and easily applied to poles by simply wrapping around the pole and stapling in place
Polesaver fire protection fabric has been specially developed to protect utility poles from bush, crop, grass and wild fires. The high quality fabric is supplied on 1.2 metre wide rolls and can be overlapped vertically on the pole to cover any required height.
Wooden utility poles tend to be damaged when exposed to bush, brush, forest and wild fires.
In the extreme, this can lead to total failure of the pole leading to outages and the requirement to undertake costly pole replacement.
This problem is more likely on wooden poles treated with copper-based wood preservatives such as CCA etc.
In this case, it is well known that the copper oxides can sustain smouldering and “glow” combustion long after the initial fire has passed. This effect is most pronounced in windy conditions.
In use, the fire fabric reduces heat input to the pole surface when exposed to wild fires and significantly limits wind/oxygen/airflow exposure that is required to sustain smouldering.
