Why Trident

Increased Strength with Innovative Design

Producing single-piece ready-to-install composite utility poles that provide a greater return on your investment.

The Trident Difference

Multi-Layer Pole

Whether you choose a single-layer or multi-layer model, Trident’s composite utility poles come in one piece and are ready to install with no assembly necessary. Our utility poles are designed for your unique application and meet any ANSI O5.1 class rating.

If you have aging infrastructure and need to harden the electrical grid, composite utility poles are a great investment. With a low carbon footprint, zero maintenance cost, the ability to withstand harsh conditions, and an internal ground wire that helps prevent copper theft, Trident poles outperform concrete, steel, and wood poles even in the toughest environments.

Trident Industries’ composite poles help you achieve your most challenging requirements

Storm Hardening

Unlike wooden poles, Trident composite poles flex in high winds without breaking. When the storm ends, poles return to their original position.

Self-supporting / Unguyed

Trident poles are used extensively in self-supporting applications. The Trident design team will work with your engineers to ensure the right pole for the right application.


With a composite Trident pole, you don’t have to worry about special handling or chemicals leaching into soil or water systems. The poles are non-conductive, serving to protect linemen, birds and wildlife.

Limited Access

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

UV Stability

Composite poles are manufactured with a robust surface veil, with high UV stabilization, and have passed the 10,000-hour UV test standards.

Ready to Install

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

Multi-Layer Composite Pole

The Best for Your Community

Our poles meet all industry UV requirements and are built to withstand the harshest of environments. Our patented design provides a unique strength that exponentially enhances resilience, meaning your customers will enjoy significantly fewer outages.

Eco-Friendly Utility Poles

Trident composite poles are a greener alternative than wood, steel or concrete. Trident does not harvest trees or mine gravel to produce poles.

Trident poles do not rust or rot and require no toxic preservatives. This helps protect delicate soil and water ecosystems.

A composite pole lasts longer and can be easily removed and repurposed at the end of its service life.

Making our world a safer place

Do No Harm

We are serious about the safety of our poles and how they impact the people, environment, and purposes they serve.

Free from Toxins

Trident utility poles do not rust or rot so they do not require toxic chemicals for preservation.

Wildlife Protection

Trident poles are non-conductive which makes them safer for birds, wildlife, and workers.

Why We Do What We Do

Helping Clients
Build Better

When Haugland Group LLC was selected as the primary composite pole installation partner for the US Virgin Islands we quickly saw the value Trident’s poles brought. In addition to the benefits of storm hardening on the islands, the single-piece poles came fully assembled, ready to install, saving countless hours over the course of the program. Each pole came equipped with ground wire routed internally, top cap, base plate, and holes drilled per the utility’s specifications. The Trident team’s support was also outstanding and very easy to work with. We look forward to future projects utilizing Trident poles.

We have been working with Trident’s composite utility poles for a few years now, specifically for unguyed applications. Given the fact that they aren’t tapered, their physical footprint is much smaller than other material or composite options, allowing for easy installation in limited access areas and urban environments where easements may be problematic. The aesthetics of composites were also an advantage in city settings, where we know they won’t rot or rust over their lifetime.

“In addition to the typical benefits of composite poles vs. traditional materials, the single piece nature of the Trident pole saved WAPA time and money.

With over 4,000 Trident poles now installed, we are confident that the islands have never been more prepared for the next big storm.”
