Manufacturers of street lighting poles called on the services of ArcelorMittal’s co-engineering team to develop an energy absorbing lighting pole.
Advanced high strength steel (DP600) is used to make the new pole absorb the energy of an impact and bend over the colliding car. In this way the number of fatal accidents can be strongly reduced.
The new design combines higher safety with considerable cost reduction.
Cars hitting a lighting pole, it happens every day on our roads. Even at low speed, it can have an enormous impact and cause serious injuries.
The newly developed pole absorbs the shock and prevents the driver and passengers being seriously hurt.
