Improving road safety has always been our main goal. Our innovative product design and use of the latest technology have made us a forerunner in our field. Quality, durability and easy installation are the cornerstones of our design.
Sähkö-Jokinen's product selection includes high-quality concrete bases for all metal poles, masts and posts. From road lights to traffic lights and signs.
Safety is based on an innovative and patented structure. When a vehicle hits the pole, blocks in the pole’s body disengage, allowing the vehicle to stop slowly and safely. Depending on the model, the KAPU® lighting pole will either give way to a vehicle in a collision situation, allowing the vehicle to continue on its path, or bend in front of the vehicle, stopping the car safely. So far, there has been over 1,000 collisions with KAPU® lighting poles without any serious consequences.
Someone who has collided with a KAPU® lighting pole speaks from experience
“Words cannot describe how grateful I am to the designers of these innovative products. Thanks to them, I was able to walk with my own feet from the place of the accident. I hope that my experience will encourage the use of collision-safe poles so that all road-users could reach their destinations in the future as well. I was lucky – I am alive to tell my story.”
The safety of road-users and the new innovations are the driving force behind our operations. Our product’s main selling points are durability and easy installation.
To ensure quality, all of our products are manufactured at our own production facility in Noormarkku, in the Satakunta region in Finland. An automated production line and efficient production methods ensure consistency and accuracy.
