Why ARE Direct Embedment Poles?

In addition to our Patented line of Ballasted Foundations with Self-Raising Poles, ARE specializes in a full-line of direct embedment poles that bring our same custom designs, quality and turn-key solutions. If digging is not problematic, direct embedment poles are a great low-cost option to lattice towers or conventional monopoles with concrete foundations.

The process is simple – dig a hole to the diameter ARE calls out on our Structural Certification, insert the base pole section which is galvanized and then treated according to US code for buried steel structures, back-fill with the removed soil, pour concrete or use foam designed for this purpose, and set your remaining sections. If multiple poles are set in an area, we’ve had contractors do as many as 4 – 100’ poles built in one day.

ARE has poles in stock for small quantities, but if you need higher volume, ARE will customize your pole to meet your specific lengths and weights to reduce cost of transportation and installation. We’ll also design in hand-holes and doors, along with custom brackets for your mounts according to your project needs.

From design, manufacturing of poles and antenna mounts, shipping to site, structural certification and installation, ARE can provide a turn-key solution.
