What is a Multifunction Pole?

What is a multifunction pole and what is its purpose?

At A.D. Coote we stock a number of different styles of Urban Aluminium multifunction poles.

Multifunction poles are generally extruded from Aluminium with 4 grooves down each side of the pole at 90-degree intervals. These grooves allow the ease of fitting and retro fitting of all the modern essentials for smart cities including but not limited to:

  • CCTV cameras
  • Solar panels
  • Traffic lights and associated hardware
  • Street and wayfinding signs
  • Custom spotlights
  • Wi-Fi brackets
  • People counters
  • Speakers
  • Digital screens
  • EV Chargers
  • Banners including the FlagTrax system

However, multifunction poles can be utilised for decorative motives and even full-blown artwork as per our projects in Kalamunda and the City of Canning’s Cecil Avenue project. Creatively the poles offer the artist a 3D landscape to work with which can offer stunning results when blended with the correct lighting and colour options.

Another benefit of the multifunction pole is to incorporate a catenary wire system with custom lighting to the poles. This can enhance streetscape projects by lighting both vertically and horizontally creating a unique lighting experience.

So, from functionality to artistic creativity the multifunction pole has a lot to offer to the modern urban streetscape.

Let's work together on your next project.
