Lampost foundations

The problem:

Damaged lampposts or signs directly concreted into the ground have to be expensively dug out.

The solution:

Photo 1:
The cavities are inserted in the ground, wiring installed and they are then filled with concrete from outside.

Photo 2:
The post is then fixed in place and the cavity filled with sand.

Finally, a thin coat of lean concrete is poured at the top that can easily be removed in the event of damage.


Foundation pipe, e.g. lamppost or electr. pylon foundations, type FKVR

Folded spiral-seam piping of zinc-coated sheet metal:

  • eady for installation
  • with / without inserted base plate / top cover
  • with / without cut-outs or drill holes for wiring

MSL foundation pipes are manufactured using the same process as displacement pipes – screwshaped bend, folded leak proof. Reinforcement beading of 3 to 9 mm depending on diameter gives the foundation pipe a very high strength to resist the pressure of the fresh concrete. The pipe can be made in any desired length. It can be supplied with base plate rolled in if the intended use dictates. Loose top covers are offered.Please note these cannot be stepped on in the standard design. The pipes are available in diameters from 100 mm to 2000 mm.
When used as lamppost foundations, cut-outs or drill holes for later wiring can be provided.MSL foundation pipe type FKVR is usually supplied zinc coated. It is used e.g. as external shuttering for block foundations, as foundation shuttering for posts and signs, as electricity pylon foundations oras shuttering elements for lamp post foundations. In the event of damage it makes it easier and cheaper to replace a lamppost.
