Alumast S.A. has provided its composite lighting columns for the reconstructed Rybnik – Chałupki line in Poland. The project to modernise the line included the restoration and replacement of tracks, overhead contact lines and security infrastructure, as well as new stations, shed and with it, new lighting columns.

The design of the columns makes them ideal for use on and around railway lines, made of a composite material which does not conduct electricity, making them especially safe for passengers and eliminating the risk of stray voltage. They are lightweight and resistant to corrosion, reducing transport and installation costs.

The columns are certified by the Railway Institute in Warsaw and are in use by Polish Railway Lines (PKP PLK S.A.).

Producer of Composite Lighting Poles for Rail Industry

ALUMAST S.A. is a well-known Polish producer of glass fiber reinforced polymer products, such as lighting poles, distribution poles, lightning protection masts and more. The technology of production has been developed by the Central Mining Institute and Silesian University of Technology in Poland. Our solutions have revolutionised the market and won recognition among customers all over the world. Constant improvement and new ideas help us to be in the lead. We create style, quality and pricing policy depending mainly on our customers’ opinions. Composite lighting poles have a life-span of up to 40 years. Thanks to their low weight they do not require any heavy assembly equipment during their installation and operation. Thanks to their insulating parameters, installation is much easier. The advantages listed below demonstrate why composite poles are a fast, low-cost investment. Some of the advantages of composite poles: Alumast’s lighting poles were tested by the Railway Institute in Warsaw and they are accepted by Polish Railway Lines (PKP PLK SA). Our composite poles are highly recommended to be used on rail infrastructure.

Composite Lighting Poles

Composite Lighting Poles are to be used on railway stations, level crossings and other areas managed by railway companies. Having a special calculations program that complies with EN 1991-1-4 we are able to calculate the wind loads and weights of installed devices on the poles. Therefore, our composite poles can be used not only for light fixtures but also for the installation of antennas, semaphores, intercoms, etc.

Composite Lighting Poles with Hinged Mechanism

Composite lighting poles with a special hinged mechanisms enable the maintenance and repair of a luminaire to be done from the ground level. There is no need for a power cut or train reorganisation. Composite poles with this mechanism are perfect for hard-to-reach places where access for heavy machines is limited.

Composite Poles for Marshalling Yards

Small composite poles for marshalling yards have LED lights, produced in any colour. They can be used at marschalling yards to reduce accidents and thefts, to allow safe movement of wagons and for a better security.

Composite Lightning Protection Masts

Composite poles are perfect for the installation of lightning protection systems because the composite material does not conduct electricity. Composite poles are lightweight, which makes their installation very easy and low-cost.

Distribution, Transmission Composite Poles for Low and Medium Voltage Lines

Our daughter company Energy Composites Sp. z o.o. is the first and only company in Poland which offers energy poles made of composite. They offer lightweight composite transmission poles and special modular service poles with a portable base. Service poles can be used during a power failure to create a bypass as a short-term solution which brings huge savings – there is no need to cut the electricity while repairing the power lines. Modular poles can be easily stored as they are made of 2 modules. We care  about our customers and value their opinions and wishes so we are keen to hear your ideas and help you find solutions to your problems. Alumast invites everyone interested to get in touch.

Composite Light Pole With a Pattern

Light pole with a pattern is a revolutionary solution on the lighting market. The customer has the possibility to design his own graphic project. It is possible to print texts or high resolution photographs. The material with pattern is one of the layers of  lighting column. The gelcoat layer protects the printing against being damaged. Additionally, the pole can be illuminated from inside which makes the pole visible at night. It creates a beautiful landscape element i.e. of the railway station.

Case Study: Rybnik–Chałupki Line

Alumast supplied the composite lighting columns for the modernisation project on the Rybnik – Chałupki line in Poland. The columns are perfect for railway use due to its Composite material design, which does not conduct electricity, thus making them especially safe for passengers and eliminating the risk of stray voltage. The poles are lightweight and resistant to corrosion, also reducing transport and installation costs.
