For over several years now, Croft Poles has enjoyed increased export demand for the higher density of Northland Radiata Pine Poles for the utility markets in Asia and on occasion, further afield.
Construction Poles, Utility Poles and Timber
Croftpoles are CCA (Copper Chromium Arsenate) treated to the level of Hazard Class 5 (H5) for critical end use situations. Results have shown that poles treated appropriately will have expected average service lives in excess of fifty years. Durability in Pacific Island environments has proved to be very good. Products used sucessfully have included construction poles, driven foundation piles, specialty machined rounds for building structures (up to 18m x 450mm), power and phone distribution, decking and outdoor timbers as well as animal fences.

Croft Pole Distributors have been a leader in the marine treatment market for some years now. Product is carefully monitored and sent for independent analysis to ensure it meets the very stringent standards for marine treated timber in New Zealand. We have been successful tenderers in projects such as the Americas Cup Village in Auckland City, Gulf Harbour Marina, Mount Maunganui Marina, Opua Marina (Northland) and many other smaller projects from Northland to the Hauraki Gulf to as far afield as Wellington, Australia, Maldives, and the French polynesian and South Pacific Islands.
