Introducing the new Heavy Duty FRP CP3000 Crossarm, developed to be the most cost effective and structurall efficient crossam available in the market! It has been fully evaluated per the requirements of ASTM D8019-15.

Creative's Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer (FRP) crossarms are engineered to meet the requirements of the National Electric Safety Code (NESC) and increase grid reliability. Our  crossarms are also RUS Approved.

The FRP crossarms are lighter and stronger than wood crossarms. They will not rot or succumb to wood peckers or termites. The fiberglass crossarms exhibit an extremely high dielectric strength and contain no hazardous chemicals or pesticides. Most utilities find that the fiberglass crossarms provide the lowest installed cost. Many times, two wood arms can be replaced with a single fiberglass deadend crossarm and fiberglass tangent crossarm.

Fiberglass deadend crossarms are available in 3-5/8” x 4-5/8” and 4” x 6” rectangular sections. Fiberglass tangent crossarms are available in 3-1/2” x 4-1/2” , 3-5/8” x 4-5/8” and 4” x 6” rectangular cross sections. The 3-5/8” x 4-5/8” FRP  crossarms were developed to be the most cost effective and structurally efficient FRP crossarm available on the market!

Our deadend crossarms are available with or without hardware. It is common for utilities to specify the crossarms predrilled with deadend phase hardware including washers, double-arm (DA) bolts, eye nuts and a prefabricated center mount. With design values published per the NESC code, our deadend crossarms are fabricated with CNC equipment under strict quality standards and contain a minimum of three layers of UV protection for superior, long-lasting performance. All material hardware and steel fabrications are hot dip galvanized per ASTM D153.

Creative’s FRP crossarms and poles can now be modeled within O-Calc Pro. O-Calc Pro is structural analysis software tool. Interested in designing your next FRP utility pole or crossarm with O-Calc Pro, learn more at http://www.osmose.com/o-calcpro.
