Wind Velocity Map

To aid you in selecting the correct pole for your geographic location, please refer to the map below which illustrates the maximum expected wind velocities across the United States. The maximum allowable luminaire square footage for each pole for a particular wind zone will be found in our loading data on each product sheet. Our loading provides for a 1.3 gust factor and is based upon ground level installations.
