GIN POLE INSPECTION, RE-CERTIFICATION

Inspections and engineering evaluation can be performed according to Cite: TIA-322 Annex C: in accordance with ANSI/ASSE A10.48.

We store copies of all records from day one of manufacture in the cloud and replacement documents are available for the life of the pole.  Sold a pole let us know, we track owners and serial numbers for many reasons including theft.  Thieves can never get the pole re-certified and new load charts without a bill of sale.  

  1. Annual Pole Certification signed and numbered
  2. Annual Pole Inspection Report signed and numbered
  3. VT Visual Welding Inspection Report, done at the time of manufacture
  4. Mill Report on steel specification ASTM A500, Grade B/C
  5. Charpy report on steel temperature test to –40 degrees
  6. PE Stamped Pole specific Load Chart
  7. Structural steel 100% recycled USA in compliance with AWS or ANSI/TIA-222-G
  8. Each gin pole assembly and associated rooster head is permanently marked matching its load chart.

Know and learn the Regulations by ordering the current OSHA CPL 2-1.36, ANSI/TIA-322 standard, and ANSI/ASSE A10.48.

New Gin pole finish is safer and last much longer, providing operator with a rough surface similar to 60 Grit Sand Paper vs. smooth Gin Poles, Owners can seal the zinc coating  with a thin coating of low viscosity polyurethane, epoxy-phenolic, epoxy, or vinyl resin. The details of the application sequence and procedures can be found in ANSI/AWS C2.18-93.

Documents needed to obtain new load charts.

  5. Each individual section must have a consecutive serial number stamp on itciting TIA 322, Pg 55:56
  6. All poles must have serialized documented product number with associated paperworkciting TIA 322, Pg 55:56
  7. Complete records of pole inspections.
  8. Record of magnetic particle inspections shall be performed on 10% of the welded connections every 10 years.
