Flagpoles and flag sizes
The following table provides the basic data for our range of standard fibreglass flagpoles together
with a guide to the correct size of flag.
There are different grades
of fibreglass flagpole (standard, heavy duty, extra heavy duty and ultra heavy duty) and your geographical
location, local weather conditions; together with the installation
position (on the ground, on a roof
etc.) will determine the correct type of flagpole
that you should be buying. This is an
important aspect of site health and safety
and should not be overlooked.
Because circumstances can vary considerably you are advised
to call our sales office
more detailed and specific information
regarding the correct flagpole type
for your site.
Important flag flying information
To prevent undue damage to flagpoles
, flags should not be flown when winds reach the upper regions of Beaufort force 6
Exposure to wind speeds of Beaufort force 7 and beyond may irreparably damage
the flag and put undue strain on
the flagpole possibly breaking it and causing a public safety issue. When wet, flags exposed to strong winds are capable of exerting
tremendous loads on the flagpole. We therefore recommend that when winds reach the upper regions of Beaufort force 6 flags should
be removed from flagpoles – if it is safe to do so.
