1 Scope

1.1 

This Standard applies to free-standing poles of ferrous metal, aluminum, polymeric, concrete, fibre reinforced structures, and wood, and to their accessories, for use in the support of lighting equipment having ratings of 600 V and less, and intended to be installed in the commercial and industrial nonhazardous locations in accordance with the Rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I.

1.2 

This Standard applies to poles used for the support of lighting equipment, such as luminaires, electric signs, and traffic lights. The poles may also serve as supports for aerial conductors, PV modules, and wind turbines used to supply the lighting equipment and, in the case of concrete or metal poles, provide wireways for conductors entering the poles.

1.3 

This Standard applies to the electrical features of poles as well as to the mechanical strength aspects and the ability to support their design loads.

1.4 

This Standard does not apply to the erection of poles or the installation of accessories on site.

Note: Lighting Poles for residential applications less than 4 m in height may be evaluated to the requirements of CSA C22.2 No 250.0 for electrical safety only, and be marked NOT EVALUATED FOR STRUCTURAL STRENGTH and N'A PAS ÉTÉ ÉVALUÉ QUANT À LA RÉSISTANCE STRUCTURALE.

1.5 

General requirements applicable to this Standard are given in CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 0.

1.6 

In CSA Group Standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard; and “can” is used to express possibility or capability. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
