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.
- Annual Pole Certification signed and numbered
- Annual Pole Inspection Report signed and numbered
- VT Visual Welding Inspection Report, done at the time of manufacture
- Mill Report on steel specification ASTM A500, Grade B/C
- Charpy report on steel temperature test to –40 degrees
- PE Stamped Pole specific Load Chart
- Structural steel 100% recycled USA in compliance with AWS or ANSI/TIA-222-G
- 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.
