Full Description

Generic Requirements for Fiber-Reinforced Composite (FRC), Concrete, and Steel Utility Poles

Document Number GR-3159
Issue Number 02
Issue Date Jan 2012

    ABSTRACT: GR-3159 contains the Telcordia view of proposed generic requirements for non-wooden utility poles including material information, functional performance criteria, technical background, and general engineering design information. GR-3159 is designed to cover Fiber-Reinforced Composite (FRC), concrete, steel and hybrid material pole structures.

    This document provides functional performance and materials criteria to help ensure that the non-wood poles supplied to the communications industry (or attached to by a communications company under a joint use agreement) are of sufficient and necessary quality and reliability to avoid premature field failures or problems over their expected lifetime.

    Issue 2 of GR-3159 contains an expanded scope covering all non-wood pole structures used for supporting communications facilities. Additionally, Issue 2 contains:

    • Extensive updates to the Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Management System (QMS) processes that are necessary to provide high quality and reliable poles.
    • A revised Section 7 containing new documentation, packaging and labeling criteria
    • Updated QMS criteria in Section 8 covering the critical steps of pole manufacture.
    Issue 2 of GR-3159, Generic Requirements for Fiber-Reinforced Composite (FRC), Concrete, and Steel Utility Poles, replaces Issue 1.

    When using GR-3159, you may want to refer to GR-60, GR-180, GR-209, GR-487, GR-839, SR-1421, and various industry standards.
