Quality Lighting Poles and Structures

    Stainless Steel

    Incorporating only quality U.S. steel materials for our lighting poles, we employ the most advanced, state-of-the-art construction and manufacturing techniques to develop an extensive line of standard lighting poles. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel materials make our lighting poles a favorite among architects that often look for extra luminaire height at a reasonable cost. With a zero-maintenance finish that is highly resistant to attack by salt spray, smog, chlorides, acids or alkaline, stainless steel poles have a life expectancy of 100+ years.

  • Galvanized Steel

    Millerbernd Poles are hot-dipped galvanized per American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A123 Specifications on-site at our facility in Winsted, MN. After galvanizing, our employees clean and inspect each galvanized pole prior to shipment.

  • Weathering Steel

    Weathering steel is specially formulated steel that does not require any surface finish protection. Weathering steel lighting poles, being a low-cost steel pole alternative, have a life span in most environments similar to galvanized poles. They are self-healing, unaffected by scratches, chips or other types of surface damage. When properly weathered, the finish color remains constant throughout the life of the pole.

  • Millerbond Painting

    Millerbond Paint Process

    Millerbond is an electrostatically applied liquid finish system consisting of an organic, zinc-rich, moisture cure urethane primer and high quality fast-cure polyurea topcoat. This paint system offers outstanding weathering and corrosion resistance. Millerbernd light poles and traffic signal structures are finish painted on-site at our facility in Winsted.

    Millerbond is also highly graffiti-resistant, and most spray paints can be quickly and easily removed without damage to the finish. Millerbond is covered by a five-year limited warranty against excessive fading, cracking or peeling. You will benefit from reduced maintenance and a longer service life when you choose this option

  • Millerbond Galvanized Steel

    Millerbond Finished Galvanized Steel

    A duplex coating of paint over galvanized steel is considered to be the most corrosion resistant coating possible. Millerbond with its zinc-rich primer is perhaps the best possible combination of paint and galvanization available in the market. This combination coating has an estimated life of more than twice that of a standard galvanized pole.

    Prime Coated for Painting

    Millerbernd’s base prime coat is an electrostatic, air-assisted spray finish of a zinc-rich, moisture cure urethane (ZRU) primer which has been subjected to a salt spray test with excellent results.
