Optional Flag pole
Finishes and Accessories
||Dark Bronze Anodized
The standard finish with all aluminum flag poles is brushed satin and
it's the most popular. Bare aluminum will oxidize over time turning a
once bright and silver finish to a dull grey.
Anodizing not only adds color, but also protects the aluminum from
oxidizing. Anodizing will not chip, flake or lose it's color like a
painted finish. However, it can be scratched if penetrated deep enough.
Clear and Dark Bronze are the most popular anodized finishes and
normally are either in stock or have a quicker turnaround that other
finishes. Other available anodized finishes are Light Bronze, Medium
Bronze and Black, please call for pricing. Anodized finishes are highly recommended for areas where the air has a high
salt content, such as coastal regions, that can cause pitting of the
Powder coated finishes are also available in the following standard
colors: White, Dark Green, Dark Bronze and Black. Optional colors are
also available. Contact Customer Service for details.
Fiberglass flag poles are available in 3 standard gel coat finishes:
White, Dark Bronze and Black.
Since the process is same for all fiberglass flagpoles, there is no
additional charge for the standard color options.
||Natural Color Eagle
A gold ball is standard, silver is available at no additional charge
on aluminum flag poles. The diameter of
the ball is based on the butt diameter of the shaft. Eagles are also
another popular option. The size of the eagle is
determined by the height of the flagpole, under 30 ft. will require a 12
inch eagle, over 30 ft. a 15 inch eagle.
Flash Collar (Residential Aluminum):
Flash collars are available as options on residential aluminum
flag poles since they are purely decorative. The ground sleeve matches
the diameter of the flag pole shaft, so no sand is needed for the
installation. In most cases, we do not recommend flash collars on
residential aluminum flagpoles unless a formed pad is being installed.
Flash collars are standard on all fiberglass and commercial flag poles
because the sand that is used in setting and plumbing the shaft needs to
be kept dry.
Double Halyard (External Halyard Commercial Aluminum):
Commercial grade aluminum flag poles will allow for a second halyard
to be installed on the shaft. This option would include: a double pulley
truck, extra cleat and the additional rope and flag clips. This is not
necessary to fly a second flag. In most cases, this is just used as a backup.
Extra Set of Snaps:
Included with every flag pole are snaps that will allow one flag to be
flown. If an additional flag were to be flown, then an extra set of
snaps would be required.
