Alpha Allpro Waterfed Pole Extensions
Light – Tough Carbon Composite
Allpro XCF pole entensions are one of the most versatile, strongest and rigid rang of hybrid pole extensions on the market.
These pole extensions are manufactured with the very best hand made hybrid carbon fibre tubular sections
Tough molded outer skin to protect your pole from the daily knocks and scrapes
Lateral contour clamps made of Dupont nylon with 40% larger clamping area, one finger open – close
All pole sections have electrical surface insulation
Pole diameters are made remarkably narrow, critical the pole should sit comfortably in the hand of your arms, shoulders, and neck, to remain relaxed for maximum continuous work output and minimize repetitive strain injuries.
POLE STRENGTH & WEIGHT
How is it that some pole extensions are almost twice the weight for the same length?
Composite manufacturing materials and methods are developing fast, Alpha range of poles are made from interwoven carbon fibre, pre impregnated with resin, would 7 – 10 times round a mandrel, resin is set which bonds the carbon filaments together. The CF has the precise amount of resin applied for maximum strength and minimal weight. This method is perfectly suited for the multi directional dynamic loads applied as a WFP
Earlier tube manufacturing methods were by extrusion with resins and fibre re enforcement. This method is generally best suited for a rigid structure in static applications where weight is not a critical factor and loads are defined in tension and compression only… (Similar process for making reinforce garden hose)
