Outdoor flag poles come in following sizes 3m, 6m, 9m, and 12m and flag size largely determines the height of a flagpole. Mild steel flag poles, which are either electro or hot dip spurred and then powder coated, is the most picked for installations at offices, hotels, government departments etc. Stainless steel flag poles are more expensive than mild steel but have the benefit of no maintenance and a high standing image. These flag poles are used at significant venues such as embassies, five-star hotels and high profile commercial and governmental offices. Fibre glass flag poles, colour impregnated, and maintenance free have universal application. They are normally used at coastal locations, which are subject to corrosive, saline atmospheric conditions. Aluminium flag poles are mostly for budget orientated installations where functionality is the key. However, on account of environment pollution causing the aluminium to corrode, the resultant black aluminium oxide becomes fixed into the textile of a flag through abrading against the flagpole.
Outdoor flag poles in 3m, 6m, 9m, and 12m height are available ex stock, with flag poles of a greater height or for specialist applications, available within two weeks of order, or sooner by arrangement. Flag size largely determines the height of a flag pole. Internationally the standard of five times the length of a landscape flag will determine the height of the appropriate flag pole. Hence the correct height of flag pole to fly a standard 120cm x 180cm flag is 9m, although when special conditions apply, the 6m counterpart is frequently used. Generally the minimum height of the flag pole on which to fly the 180cm x 270cm Ceremonial flag is 12m.
Our flag poles are available with either an internal or external halyard mechanism. Internal halyard flag poles are more expensive but have the compensating advantage of making the installation virtually theft proof, as the rope is housed inside the flag pole. Furthermore, the internal halyard eliminates the noise of rope wind slap and as a result of the rope being protected from the sun, routine maintenance is greatly reduced.
All flag poles over 6m in height come complete with aesthetically pleasing low profile under-hinge base plates, which facilitates the lowering and raising of the flag pole. For ease of transport, our flag poles come in component lengths of a maximum 6m, for on site, no tools required, friction fitting, to make up the final length of the flag pole.
