Hapco is the industry-recognized pioneer on the research of wind induced vibration in aluminum poles. Our decades of research and testing has led to several patents in this category, giving Hapco Engineers the knowledge and background to assure our customers the safest, longest lasting pole designs.

We have learned from experience that poles supporting certain types of post-top mounted fixtures are more susceptible to first and second mode vibration. The rectangular or “shoebox” shaped luminaires, for example, seem to encourage second mode vibration, while more aerodynamic lightweight fixtures encourage first mode vibration. Any oscillation should be dealt with as soon as it becomes apparent to prevent damage to the pole or luminaire.

Hapco Damper Solutions
To minimize the effects of first or second mode vibration, Hapco has developed dampers which very effectively quell wind induced vibration of lighting poles.

First Mode Damper
Hapco’s patented First Mode Vibration Damper is field installed at the top of square poles. This damper very effectively reduces first mode vibration of square lighting poles. Due to potential vibration fatigue issues that can be associated with moderate wind conditions, First Mode Dampers are recommended for square poles with mounting heights greater than 25’ and for square poles with light loading fixtures less than 2.0 EPA. Fatigue related pole failures are not an indication of substandard material, workmanship or design of the pole and is not covered under Hapco’s standard warranty.

U.S. Patent No. 7871186

Second Mode Damper
The Hapco Second Mode Damper was awarded the industry’s first patent in the vibration damping category in 1972. It is attached to the pole at approximately the midpoint of the pole, and can be factory bolted inside the pole or field mounted on the inside or outside of an existing pole.

Based on past experience, some Hapco poles include factory-installed Second Mode Vibration Dampers as a standard component. If the poles you intend to order are to be bridge mounted, used as camera poles, or may be subject to unusual site conditions, wide open terrain, steady or high energy prevailing winds, or other site conditions as mentioned, please make Hapco aware of these conditions. Or, if your installed poles are exhibiting oscillation, contact Hapco to pursue a damping solution that may include installing a Hapco Second Mode Damper on the poles.

Locations with high average wind speeds are more prone to pole vibration problems than locations with high maximum wind speeds. Areas of high average wind speeds can be identified on the U.S. Department of Energy Residential Scale 30 Meter Wind Map which can be accessed at the U.S. Department of Energy website.

Reinforced Handholes

Standard handhole modifications are detailed below.
Custom reinforced handhole options may be available
(contact Hapco for additional information).

This industry-standard handhole size is included as a standard in many of the poles in this catalog. The opening is oval in shape and measures 4” x 6”, with the major dimension along the vertical axis. The hole in the shaft wall is reinforced with a frame of aluminum alloy 356-T6, which projects slightly through the wall and is completely joined to the shaft with a fillet weld, the minimum size of which is 5/16”. The opening is protected by a snug-fitting cover attached by means of two stainless steel hex head screws. The external contour of the reinforcing frame and cover, although projecting slightly for sound welding, is curved to conform to the roundness of the shaft. The cover has a surface finish which is comparable to that of the shaft. The standard location of the handhole is centered 18” above the bottom of the shaft and will be located 90 degrees clockwise from the plane of the bracket, as viewed from above.
