How high can my flagpole be?
We recommend the flagpole be as high as the building for which it will be used. If the flagpole is further than 10-15 metres from the building, the flagpole can be lower than the building itself. This is with reference to the relative heights. The height of the flagpole can also depend on the size of the flag: the whole unit must be in proportion.
What is the difference between a tapered and a cylindrical flagpole?
A cylindrical flagpole has the same diameter from bottom to top, while a tapered model tapers from bottom to top. All our polyester and wooden flagpoles are tapered; aluminium flagpoles are available in both tapered and cylindrical models.
What kind of material should I choose?
We can supply three materials: wood, aluminium and polyester. We make a distinction between these materials, with wood on the one hand, and aluminium and polyester on the other. Wood is the most interesting prospect in terms of price, but the least promising in when it comes to maintenance (wooden flagpoles are made from laminated Norwegian pine, but wood is still wood, and the flagpole will require yearly maintenance). The same is not true of aluminium and polyester. The biggest difference between aluminium and polyester flagpoles is that an aluminium flagpole gives a marina effect (the halyard can clearly be heard to click against the flagpole) and a polyester flagpole does not. Aluminium and polyester flagpoles are equally durable.
