WHAT TYPE OF FLAGPOLE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
TELESCOPING: No ropes, no chains, no pulleys, no snaps. Telescoping flagpoles are made from different diameter tubes that slip inside each other. Each section is raised and locked into place, starting with the smallest section. Due to the tapered effect, telescoping flagpoles maintain their strength to height ratios. Telescoping flagpoles do not have ropes to tangle and wear or hardware to constantly clang in windy conditions. These poles are manufactured out of aluminum and have an anodized finish. The life expectancy of the telescoping flagpole is 10 to 30 years with minimal maintenance. Heights range from 15ft. to 25ft.
SECTIONAL: These flagpoles are made from one size of tubing with one end of the tube tapered to fit inside the next tube. These poles are made of two different materials; either painted steel or anodized aluminum. Both materials can wear at the joints and loosen over time. In addition, steel tends to rust, especially in the joints, which are contact points. Single sized tubing decreases in strength in direct proportion to height. The taller the flagpole, the less strength it has. Ropes are used to raise and lower the flag and wear out over time. The ropes and clips can produce a clanging noise in windy situations. These poles typically last 3 to 7 years or longer if not flown in wind above 25 miles per hour. Heights range from 15ft. to 20 ft.
INTERNAL HALYARD: A flagpole system enclosing either rope or wire halyard inside the flagpole behind the security of a lockable door. Heights range from 15ft. to 50ft.
EXTERNAL HALYARD: A flagpole system utilizing flagpole trucks with exposed pulleys & rope halyard. Heights range from 15ft. to 50ft.
HOUSE MOUNT: A flagpole system averaging 1 inch in diameter, attached to your home with 2-position or multi-position mounting bracket. Heights range from 5ft. to 6ft.
