There are six basic pole shapes:
2) Stripe-round (fluted),
3) Half round (off-centered)
5) Single groove
6) Double grooves
The diameter for stainless steel poles ranges from 2.8mm to 28mm with a thickness ranging from 0.2mm to 0.4mm.
The diameter for aluminum poles ranges from 7mm to 52.2mm with a thickness range of 0.5mm to 1mm.
The table below gives more insight into size options for various pole shapes and configurations.
|Round||S.S/Copper||2.8mm – 28mm||0.2 – 0.4mm||Yes||Snap/Cam/Push Button|
|Alu||7mm – 52.2mm||0.5 – 1.0mm||Snap/Cam/Clutch/Push Button|
|Stripe Round||Alu||9.5mm – 52.2mm||0.7 – 1.0mm||Yes||Cam/Clutch|
|Rccentric||Alu||9mm – 24.2mm||0.7mm||No||open and lock with simple quater turn|
|Single Groove||S.S||7mm-20mm||0.2 – 0.4mm||No||Non|
|Alu||7.2mm-28mm||0.5 – 1mm||No||Snap|
|Double Grooves||S.S||7mm-20mm||0.2 – 0.4mm||No||Non|
There are five different kinds of locking structures:
1) No lock,
2) Snap lock,
3) Internal “cam” lock (opens with a quarter turn on pole),
4) Clutch lock/outer “cam” lock (opens with a quarter turn on lock)
5) Push button
As for the strength of the locks, snap locks and buckle locks are the strongest and can support 110 lbs/50kgs or more.
The other locks support a bit less weight but can be customized to fit your engineering requirements.
