Select the Best Light and Sign Poles for Your Streetscape Design Project
Streetscape and neighborhood beautification projects often refer to a “sense of place” when attempting to find the right look and feel for their location. The phrase, sense of place refers to emotional attachments residents or visitors develop in specific areas that can range from hometowns to favorite vacation destinations. The attachment to a place is often connected to the unique character of the streetscapes in city-centers or residential neighborhoods. Often it is the design and details of places that connect with people. While not always the most notable feature in a community, light posts and sign style can enhance the appeal of a location, which can then achieve the desired sense of place.
Brandon Industries offers light and sign pole options to meet the needs of every streetscape and neighborhood project. Channel, fluted, smooth, or square, each pole design provides a unique aesthetic appeal.
Smooth Round and Square Poles
Smooth round poles add a touch of contemporary style to any given residential or urban streetscape. With a sleek exterior, the seamless tubing of the smooth pole is a classic choice for light posts, signage systems, and wayfinding signs. Smooth square poles are a durable, heavy-duty option, perfect for neighborhood mailboxes. Smooth square poles add character and curb appeal with a modern upscale feel to these functional requirements for many single-family homes. All smooth poles require attachment holes to be drilled to hang signage, mailboxes, or light fixtures.
Fluted Poles for Ornamental Designs
Fluted poles derive their name from Greek architects who viewed it as an essential design element and incorporated fluting in much of their architecture. Fluting describes the decorative process that cuts rounded grooves vertically on the pole shaft. Fluting is an elegant design feature that increases the play of light on a pole and helps the pole to appear more perfectly round than even a smooth pole. Like smooth poles, fluted poles require attachment holes to be drilled to attach signage, mailboxes, or light fixtures. Fluted poles are a popular choice for mailboxes, signposts, and light poles by adding a touch of traditional class to streetscapes and neighborhoods.
Channel Poles for Functionality and Decorative Aesthetics
Channel poles have the look of a fluted pole but have channels running the length of the pole. These channels allow the nut of the sign or mailbox bracket to be guided through the channel and locked into place without drilling holes in the post. Once the signage is in place, if needed, the channel track also allows for easy changing or adjustment of the sign placement without drilling any holes.
Brandon Industries’ smooth, fluted, square, and channel poles are constructed of extruded aluminum alloy, providing seamless tubing and a corrosion-resistant high-quality surface finish. Poles are available in various sizes and lengths and are suitable for mailboxes, light poles, signage systems, and wayfinding signs. Each pole is protected by a polyester powder coat that is applied and thermocured for a long-lasting, durable finish. Brandon Industries is ready to meet the needs of all your streetscapes and community projects with their industry-leading products and outstanding customer service.
