Akron Brass Adds New Line of Pike Poles

Thursday, May 21, 2009  

Wooster, Ohio – Introduced at the Fire Department Instructors Conference, Akron’s new Ultra-Tough (UT) line of poles adds depth to an already extensive pole offering.

The new Ultra-Tough poles combine the lightweight features of a hollow fiberglass pole with the added strength of a durable, honeycomb cored center that is bonded to the fiberglass. UT poles are 5 times as strong as the Ultra-Lite (UL) line of poles. The meshed fiberglass material provides extra strength compared to standard fiberglass used by others in the industry.

Akron Brass offers Ultra-Tough, Ultra-Lite, Gripper, I-Beam and Wood pole options. Demand Akron Brass pike poles for long lasting, durable, maintenance free tools you can count on.
