Stepped welded columns


Stepped welded columns, manufactured under certified quality check according to  ISO9001 by authorised processing centre according to DM 14/01/08, manufactured employing induction longitudinally welded tubes UNI EN 10219/2, steel grade S235JR UNI EN10219/1, stepped at one end by press and joined by means of circumferential welding nearby the steps. Welding are carried out by means of automatic MAG process approved, and by qualified welders  and welding check according to EN ISO 3834.

Restrictions on dimensions:
max length on section 12.8 m
dimensions of the sections according to UNI EN 10219/2

Protection against corrosion by means of hot dip galvanisation obtained with the following cycle: degreasing; pickling, washing, fluxing, pre heating; hot dip galvanization in melted zinc bath at 440÷450°, with minimum percentage of zinc into the bath ³ 98.5%. Coating obtained according to UNI EN ISO 1461 with minimum thickness 55 microns et average 70 microns.

External painting, if any, with colour from our colour card, rough effect, obtained with thermosetting powders cycle including: cleaning from zinc coating burs; smoothing of the surfaces by means of a light mechanic device; cleaning of the surfaces in order to eliminate grease or dirty and create a good adherence base; application by means of electrostatic spray of polyester powder suitable for galvanized surfaces for outside installation, in order to reach  60/80 micron thickness; polymerization into oven at constant temperature of approx. 200° for 40-50 minutes, package for each column, by banding with tissue 100% polyester, (no pluriball), in order to avoid damages during the handling phase. The characteristics of the obtained coat will be: average thickness  60 micron, resistance to checkering test  ISO2409, resistance to crash test to UNI8901

The columns will be CE marked according to the standard in force  (DPR246/93, 89/106/CEE; 93/68/CEE). The label on each column must quote: standard reference  EN40-5, manufacturer’s identification, certificate number of the authorization to the mark CE CPD P029,  year of marking, product code, and order number reference.

To design lighting column You need to know the following data:
– design wind speed
– features of the surrounding landscape that is ground roughness category 
– height  up to the lighting source 
– number, type, dimensions and weight of the fixture to be installed 
– fixture arrangement  (post top; or brackets)


Columns, provided to be fixed to the basement by direct burying, are completed of the 3 works for electric wiring at base, cable entry slot, earth device., slot for junction box.

In order to choose the suitable model You need to know: height up to the lighting source; arrangement (post top or with bracket, …), number and type of lighting fixture to be installed; installation site
