For roadside installations vulnerable to vehicular impacts, Shakespeare develops and manufactures roadway safety breakaway light poles
Shakespeare breakaway poles are specially designed to break off and fly over a vehicle that strikes the pole, minimizing danger to the vehicle's occupants. Breakaway light poles are required per AASHTO standards of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in certain applications near roadways.
Shakespeare created the first composite breakaway light poles. Our breakaway safety lighting standards are available in both direct burial and anchor base styles, with or without a variety of arms, brackets and attachments to complete your installation.
Shakespeare breakaway poles visually match our other Round Tapered Tuff-Poles, so you can mix the standard and breakaway light poles in a geographic location as needed for improved aesthetics.
With decades of expertise in manufacturing high quality lighting poles, Shakespeare offers time-proven composite product designs and durable, triple-UV protective coatings which deliver an attractive solution for highway and roadway safety lighting.
