OUTDOOR FLAG POLES
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.

Mild steel flag poles, which are either electro or hot dip galvanised and then powder coated, are the most popular choice for installations at offices, hotels, government departments etc.
Stainless steel flag poles are more expensive than mild steel but have the advantage of no maintenance and a high prestige image. These flag poles are used at important 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 commonly used at coastal locations, which are subject to corrosive, saline atmospheric conditions.
Aluminium flag poles are predominantly for budget orientated installations where functionality is the key. However, on account of atmospheric pollution causing the aluminium to corrode, the resultant black aluminium oxide becomes fixed into the textile of a flag through abrading against the flag pole.
Sun Square Hotel, Monte Casino Complex, South Africa. Angled flag poles fitted with FlagCraft designed and manufactured restrainer arms to prevent the flags wrapping themselves around the flag poles.
This discolouration cannot be successfully removed by cleaning, hence the visual life of the product is greatly reduced, necessitating premature flag replacement. It is essential that aluminium is either anodised or powder coated. Aluminium flag poles should not be considered to be maintenance free. If zero maintenance is a criteria, then either stainless steel or fibre glass flag poles are the best solution.
FlagCraft flag poles come complete with all fittings including galvanised or stainless steel foundation cages.
Installation is either by the customer following our simple procedural instructions, or alternatively, one of our highly professional installation crews may be retained at an additional charge.
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.
