Select the Right Material

Fiberglass
Is non-conductive, strong and colorful and has become a leading choice for the serious do-it-yourselfer, commercial or industrial user. 

Aluminum
Is lightweight and strong, but it conducts electricity and should never be used near energized electric wires.  

Wood
Is solid, stable and non-conductive when clean and dry.
