Decoration - Olga - January 25, 2022

Flagpoles are poles designed specifically for permanent installation on the ground through a special underground base made of reinforced concrete. Thanks to this type of installation, it is possible to expose the flags even in extreme environmental conditions. This is the main feature that distinguishes flagpoles from freestanding advertising flags.

Flagpoles VS self-supporting flags

The self-supporting flags are available in numerous shapes and sizes (rectangular, drop, sail, triangular, fin) and are generally composed of fiberglass or aluminum rods depending on the model.

Before the concrete has solidified, it is necessary to check the verticality of the installation. Engage the flagpole sections. Insert the tip. Install the rope. Secure the cleat with the self-tapping screws provided. Only when the concrete has solidified is it possible to raise the flagpole. Cover the concrete if necessary.
