Commercial Flagpole Finishes
Call or email us at our contact request form for a quotation on flagpole finishes. While all of our aluminum flagpoles require little maintenance to retain their natural shine, our anodized flagpoles offer an even simpler solution. Our satin brushed finished flagpoles will generally keep clean with the rainfall in most areas, however; because the exterior of the flagpole is aluminum, it will continue to oxidize throughout its lifetime. Special cleaning agents may be required to remove the discoloration caused by this process of oxidation. Our anodized flagpoles do not encounter this problem. The process of anodization actually creates a barrier on the external surface of the aluminum flagpole, thus eliminating the oxidation process. Because the aluminum is not exposed to the elements, it cannot oxidize. The anodized finishes allow you to clean your flagpole with simple soap and water. Anodized poles take 4-6 weeks to ship because they are made to order.
Wind speeds should be taken into consideration especially when purchasing commercial style flagpoles. Safe flagpole design requires knowledge of the loads to which they will be subjected. It is important that flagpoles be selected which are capable of supporting the largest flag intended to be flown in the highest wind speed to which it will be subjected.
Commercial Flagpole Shipping
Typical delivery time is 3 to 6 weeks for poles with Satin finishes. See Finishes section for lead time on custom and anodized poles.
All poles are double spiral wrapped with protective paper and shipped in a hard fiber tube. WARNING - The flagpole shaft will stain if allowed to remain in contact with wet or damp wrappings. If there is any sign that the shaft or its shipping tube has come in contact with water during shipment, remove from the tube and unwrap immediately. If the shaft is to be stored outdoors, it must be stored unwrapped, out of the tube and off the ground.

Commercial Flagpole Installation Instructions
Internal vs External Halyards? Which is right for you?
Flagpole halyard configurations fall into two categories - internal and external (the halyard is the rope or cable that is used to raise or lower the flag on a flagpole).
Internal Halyard Flagpoles conceals the rope on the inside of the flagpole. Internal Halyard flagpoles are typically more expensive than comparable external halyard flagpoles but they offer a more streamlined look and security. The rope is in the inside of the flagpole and travels up and out of the truck at the top of the flagpole. The rope is either wire centered halyard or stainless steel cable and is secured near the bottom of the flagpole with a cam cleat or with a winch. The rigging is accessible and controlled after unlocking an access door. The benefits of internal cable halyards are a) security and b) service life. With an internal cable halyard flagpole, the entire halyard is enclosed inside the pole when the flag is fully raised. And raising or lowering the flag requires a special winch handle. Further, the opening for this winch handle often has a locking cover. These features all add up to a highly secure solution for flying a flag.
External Halyard Flagpole System places the rope on the outside of the flagpole. The rope is exposed on the outside of the flagpole and travels through a pulley mounted at the top of the flagpole. An external cleat completes the rigging allowing the halyard to be tied off from the base of the flagpole. This enables ease of operation allowing the flag to be displayed and move up and/or down as required. The rope is on the outside of the pole and is simply wrapped around a cleat to secure the flag. External halyard flagpoles are less secure.
