Utility poles are divided into ten classes, from 1 to 10. The classes' definition specifies a minimum circumference that
depends on the species of tree and the length of the pole. This circumference is measured 6 feet from the butt of the pole.
There is also a minimum top circumference that is the same for all species and lengths. Class 1 pole has a minimum top circumference of 27 inches.
If it is 25 feet long and cedar (most utility poles are cedar), the circumference measured 6 feet from the bottom must be at least 43.5 inches.
The higher the class number, the skinnier the pole. Pole lengths start at 16 feet and increase by 2-foot steps to 22 feet, then by fives from 25 feet to 90 feet.
A 90-foot class 1 western red cedar pole weighs about 6,600 pounds. A 16-foot pole weighs only about 700. A 35-foot pole is a typical length used in cities
to carry one or two crossarms. Poles are spaced about 100 feet to 150 feet apart, with 125 feet being typical. |

A device is described for connecting two electric aerial cables. Each aerial cable has tube,
containing optical fibers, which is cabled with electric conductors and strength member. Means are provided for the mechanical and electrically conductive
joining of the electric conductors and strength members of the two cables. A sealed splice carrier for receiving the spliced connections of the optical
fibers comprises two concentric tubes (7, 9) with a annular gap between them. The annular gap is sealed at both ends. The optical fibers are inserted
into the annular gap through apertures in the end seals (8). The spliced connections and a length of optical fibers are stored in the annular gap.
The splice carrier (5) surrounds the means (21, 3) for the mechanical and electrically conductive joining and is attached to the electrically
conductive joining means (3) or to the aerial cables (1).
Two types of utility poles: A. Creosote, Coal-tar creosote used in wood preservation is produced by the high temperature carbonization of coal and consists principally of aromatic hydrocarbons plus some tar acids and bases.|
B. CCA, this preservative, is made up of the oxides or salts of copper, chromium, and arsenic. The arsenic and copper are toxic to insects and fungi
that prey on wood, while chromium is used to bond the two elements to the wood’s cellular components.
