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 for 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.
