Multi-Layer Poles

It’s All About Strength

In self-supporting or partially guyed applications, strength is what you’re looking for.

Patent Multi-Layer Design

Multi-layer composite pole

Trident single-layer poles can be combined to make a multi-layer pole with each layer running the entire length of the structure, unlike in modular designs. These stronger poles have a smaller footprint than comparable filament-wound poles and have been used in self-supporting and partially guyed situations, or even in place of steel lattice structures for transmission projects. These nested poles come fully assembled and prefabricated, ready for installation.

3-Layer Composite Pole

Composite utility poles are strong yet lightweight making for easier installation than traditional materials. They’re hollow, allowing the ground wire to be installed inside the pole, preventing copper theft. Multi-layer poles will flex less than a single-layer pole, but they’re still extremely resilient and will not break in high winds.

Increased Flexibility and Resilience

The Best for Your Community

Our patented design provides a unique strength that exponentially enhances resilience, meaning your customers will enjoy significantly fewer outages.

Advantages of Composite Poles

Storm Hardening

Composite utility poles are flexible. They bend in high winds without breaking. When the storm ends, composite poles return to their original shape. Because of this, Trident poles have been used extensively to prevent cascading outages.

Self-supporting / Unguyed

Composite poles are used extensively in self-supporting applications. Trident’s design team will work with your engineers to ensure you get the right pole for the right application. Download our Design Form today.


Since Trident composite poles are inert, you don’t have to worry about special handling or about harsh preservatives leaching into soil or groundwater. The poles are non-conductive and safer for workers, birds, and other wildlife.

Limited Access

Our composite poles are lightweight making them easy to install in narrow spaces and rough terrain.

UV Stability

Trident composite poles have a resin-rich surface with high UV stabilization. Each pole must pass the 10,000-hour UV test standards, making every Trident pole very resistant to sun and weather damage.

Ready to Install

We can deliver your poles prefabricated for faster installation or they can be drilled in the field.
