The Crown counter balance CESS Pole is permanently installed at trackside on a concrete or pile foundation. They are available in heights to suit the specific location and signal requirements. Adopted from the Roadside Crown Pole™  this design feature a counter balance lowering mechanism which enables ground level access operated by only a single engineer.

The Crown CESS Pole is positioned to attain equal distance between the centre-line of the signal head and track and the centre-line of the post and track.

The pole design provides robust support for various combinations of signal head equipment. The function of the pole is to provide improved safe access to the signal head equipment for maintenance purposes.

The pole is relatively maintenance-free and incorporates a number of ‘duplicated’ safety features to safeguard personnel and equipment when carrying out maintenance activities.

The pole is designed to comply with British Standards, BD51/98 Portal and Cantilever Sign and Signal structures, and relevant Railway Group and company Standards.

This pole is often used on railway engineering projects in conjunction with our Gantry Pole.

We now also offer an adapted version of this to hold matrix signs for use on A roads and motorway slip roads, find out more about the Slip Road Pole.
