TYPES OF FLAGPOLES AVAILABLE TODAY
6m untapered white powder coated aluminium with the full 6m out of the ground. Can be installed by a handyman with a crowbar, a spade, and a spirit level in about an hour using quick-set concrete mixed in a wheelbarrow. Easy installation instructions are supplied with the pole. Or we can install at a nominal price.
Tapered Aluminium Poles
Are spun tapered on one of three spinning lathes in Australia, two in Sydney, one in Adelaide. We draw ours from Sydney, so there is a freight component in the price. Our poles are made from 6000 Series extruded aluminium tube with a T6 temper - a high strength marine grade alloy with excellent durability.
They are finished with finial, pulley, halyard, flag clips, baseplate or wall brackets, together with mounting bolts and spacing template. In locations where there is potential vandalism, it is always advisable to invest in an internal halyard rigging in which the halyard is locked away inside the pole. We offer to install at a nominal cost, and also to repair or re-rope older poles.
Flagpoles with a Yardarm
Sometimes called a cross arm – allow more flags to fly off the one pole, the most common for three flags. The top of the main pole is the position of honour, e.g. for the Australian flag; when viewed from outside the left arm is for the next in seniority, e.g. a State flag, and the right arm for, say, a school or company flag. The flag at the top must fly free and not foul the stays which support the yardarm, and the flags on the yard must fly out of reach from the ground, hence a 7.5m yardarm pole is the smallest configuration. A gaff arm is a single arm reaching out upward from the position of the yardarm, if it has one, and this arm takes the flag in the position of honour.
