Tapered poles gradually decrease in diameter from the base to the top. They are commonly used in various applications such as utility poles, flag poles, lighting poles, and communication towers. The tapering process helps to distribute the load more evenly along the length of the pole. This makes them more structurally sound and able to withstand greater wind loads than non-tapered poles. Tapered poles also offer a number of other benefits, such as reducing weight and material costs, increasing stiffness, and improving aesthetics. They can be designed to meet specific requirements for height, strength, and appearance, and can be finished with a variety of coatings and colors to suit different environments and applications.
