Imperial poles specializes in complete engineering and custom design for area lighting, street lighting, traffic signals, High Mast, Area and sports lighting, telecommunication poles, flag poles and sign poles. Production originally began in Santa Fe Springs, CA and as the need for steel poles increased, Imperial Poles was relocated to its current 28 acre, state of the art facility in Riverside, Ca. in 2002 to meet current market demands.

Our shop consists of a 20,000 sq. ft. fabrication facility, a full machine shop, multiple layout and welding stations serviced by a 10 ton bridge crane.

02. Cabinets

Having worked with the customer before, Peter knew what was in their tooling cabinet. They had used a Mate SnapLock™ tool in another application a few years ago. SnapLock is a lance and form tool which produces self-locking, spring loaded tabs that snap securely into pre-punched holes. A mechanical lock is formed, eliminating the need to utilize other fasteners or welding. Peter used this tool to demonstrate its value in the current application, enclosures for fire equipment.

Sitting with the programmer, thermovision integrated the existing SnapLock into their enclosure design. He then worked with the company’s press brake operator to explain the set-up and how to bend the parts consistently to make them snap and lock together. The enclosures produced by the initial demonstration passed all required strength tests, allowing them to eliminate the secondary spot welding operation. Since the initial demonstration, the company purchased three additional SnapLock tools and implemented them into all of the other boxes and closures they manufacture.

03. Solar Module Frames

Thermovision portfolio of aluminum solar panel frames is a trusted source for PV module manufacturers seeking superior mold sophistication at a competitive price. Produced in a state-of-the-art production facility, the solar frames we supply are molded and assembled using high-precision tools (<0.02mm variance) to ensure reliable performance and a lengthy product lifespan. Working closely with our supply partners and organizations including U.S-based SEIA, Thermovision helps solar manufacturers and project developers worldwide enhance the sustainability of their supply chains. Contact us today to learn more.

The solar panel frame plays a fundamental role. On the one hand, it protects the internal components from thermal and mechanical tensions while on the contrary, it provides mounting attachment points. Besides, framed solar PV panels are better protected during transport than frameless solar panels.

04. Battery Racks

The modular battery racking system can be specified to accommodate any battery cell. From flooded to sealed, from lead-acid to nickel-cadmium, from vertical to horizontal mounting, a high density, space-saving rack can be provisioned. SBS can size an appropriate battery rack system for your application. Thermovision modular rack system can be specified to accommodate any battery cell or jar. From flooded to sealed, from lead-acid to nickel-cadmium, from vertical to horizontal mounting, a high density, space-saving rack can be provisioned. Our seismic battery racks are either certified, or built to, Seismic Zone 4 IBC/UBC standards. These earthquake-proof racks for static battery installations are approved for use in California, in earthquake Zone 4 as defined by the Uniform Building Code 1997.
