Standing Resilient in an Unpredictable World

In an increasingly volatile climate, ductile iron poles are a highly durable and sustainable solution for energy transmission and distribution. McWane Poles is a global leader in manufacturing ductile iron poles, backed by an industry-leading support team.

More durable than wood. Lighter than concrete. More corrosion-resistant than steel.

Ductile iron is a groundbreaking alternative to conventional distribution poles. McWane Ductile Iron Poles are eco-friendly and highly sustainable, with a service life of 75+ years, outlasting both steel and wood.

Explore all the advantages.
  • Sustainability


    Made from 96% recycled material and 100% recyclable at end of service.

  • Fire Resistance

    Fire Resistance

    Fireproof, heat-resistant and able to sustain loads well beyond the requirement before failure.

  • Line Hardening

    Line Hardening

    Engineered with a minimum yield strength of 42ksi.

  • Corrosion Resistant

    Corrosion Resistant

    Proven in corrosive environments and impervious to rot, insects, and woodpeckers.

Engineered for Consistency

Manufactured by centrifugal casting, McWane Poles are engineered for consistent strength and dimensional control. And unlike wood, ductile iron doesn't warp or shrink from wear and weathering.

  • Consistent Strength

    Consistent Strength

    McWane Ductile Iron Poles are engineered with a minimum yield strength of 42ksi, an ultimate yield strength of 60ksi, a modulus of elasticity of 24,000ksi and a minimum percentage of elongation of 10 percent.

  • Advanced Metallurgy

    Advanced Metallurgy

    Because of ductile iron's advanced metallurgy, it has the physical strength of steel with the corrosion resistance of cast iron.

  • Quality Control

    Quality Control

    Our manufacturing facility are ISO 9000 certified for quality management. And our industry-leading support team is here for everything from finding the right product to assisting with installation.
