weathering steel transmission pole Tag

It’s no secret that our country’s electric grid is outdated and rapidly aging. Fortunately, the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, which was signed into a law in November of 2021, included $65 billion for upgrading our country’s power infrastructure. When selecting material for replacing transmission and lighting poles, weathering steel, also referred to as COR-TEN steel, is an excellent choice. In fact, many utility owners prefer to use weathering steel because of its aesthetically-pleasing, orange-brown patina among other practical benefits.
