Product Description

Highly energy-absorbing lighting column compliant with EN 12767

The unique, patented structure of the KAPU®-HE pole reduces the risk passenger injury. In the event of a collision, the body of the KAPU®-HE pole absorbs the kinetic energy of the colliding vehicle and reduces the speed to a safe level, protecting the passengers in the vehicle as well as other road users.

The cone-shaped pole complies with the requirements the highest energy absorption category of the EN 12767 standard, HE, 100. KAPU-HE poles in this category can be used on all roads to increase safety. The KAPU®-HE poles are recommended on busy roads where there is a pedestrian and bicycle way or trees behind the poles.

KAPU-HE poles of 8m and 10m comply with the requirements of the highest safety category, HE,3.

  • All poles have a minimum pole top diameter of 60 mm.

  • We reserve the right to make changes to the technical specifications.

 

Safe choice

Sahko-Jokinen, established in 1968, is the largest manufacturer of impact-safe lighting poles in Europe. More than twenty years of experience, innovative product planning and high-quality technology have created the company’s position as a forerunner in the field.

KAPU – Durable Steel Cone Pole

KAPU safepole has been developed to improve the safety of road-users. The pole is best suited for roads that have heavy traffic and parallel walkways behind them. KAPU has been patented and it has passed the required tests for all speeds. Long life and low life cycle costs make KAPU the most suitable and durable choice.

Collision Characteristics

The cone-shaped KAPU safety pole has been approved to the standard EN12767’s best class 100, HE 3, 120km/h. The safety of travellers in collision situations is based on the pole’s structure. When a vehicle hits the pole, blocks in the pole’s body disengage, reducing the collision energy and allowing the vehicle to stop slowly and safely.

Experiences From the Roads

More than 30,000 KAPU safepoles were installed between 1994 and 2008. Approximately 400 poles have been hit, and in every case the poles have worked very well. More than 50 per cent of our production goes to the Nordic region, the Baltic countries and Central Europe. KAPU safepole is constructed from steel lamellas that have no extensions and have been attached together longitudinally. The structure meets the requirements of the EN 40-5 standard.

Material

Steel is a familiar and reliable material for lighting poles. High-strength steel lamellas are cold formed into dimensional accuracy with computer-directed automatic machines. The material is hot galvanised according to EN ISO 1461. The screws used are made of stainless steel.
