External Halyard Flagpoles

External Halyard Flagpole Diagram

External Halyard Flagpoles expose the rope halyard on the outside of the flagpole shaft.

External Halyard Systems

External Halyard Flagpoles utilize flagpole trucks with an exposed pulley, rope halyard and flagpole cleat. If budget is a concern, External Halyard Flagpoles are the most affordable as well as most popular for both residential and commercial flagpole projects. These flagpoles range in height from 20 ft to 80 ft.


External Trucks

An external truck sits at the top of the flagpole, providing a pulley system for rope halyard.

Options include include stationary trucks, which are fixed and will not rotate, and revolving trucks, which rotate with the wind. A double revolving truck is also available and includes an extra cleat and complete double halyard assembly.

External Single Revolving Truck - Spindle Design Example
External Single Revolving
Spindle Design

Spindle Design Trucks incorporate a threaded spindle which is installed into a female fitting welded into the top of the flagpole.

Revolving Trucks rotate the flag with the wind.

Cap Design Trucks install over the top of the flagpole and are attached with anchoring set screws or bolts.

Stationary Trucks are fixed and will not rotate.


Internal Halyard Flagpoles

Internal Halyard Flagpole Diagram

Internal Halyard Flagpoles keep the rope or wire halyard inside the flagpole shaft and thus have a more streamlined appearance.

Cam Cleat Systems

Cam Cleat Systems incorporate rope halyard secured in place by a heavy-duty cam action cleat. These flagpoles require additional components compared to external halyard flagpoles including an access door, cam cleat to hold the rope halyard, retainer ring, counterweight, and internal halyard truck. Cam Cleat Systems range from 20 ft to 40 ft.

Cam Cleat Internal System
Winch Systems

Winch Systems use wire halyard (i.e. stainless steel cable) with a gearless winch and winch handle to raise and lower the flag. Winch Systems are the most expensive type of flagpole. Their components including a winch, winch handle, retainer ring, counterweight, internal flagpole truck, and flag arrangement. Winch System Flagpoles range from 20 ft to 100 ft.

Finish Options

Satin Aluminum

Aluminum flagpoles are constructed of Aluminum Alloy 6063, a marine grade alloy that exhibits extremely high resistance to corrosion. On contact with air, aluminum forms a resistant layer of aluminum oxide. This process naturally guards against corrosion, allowing our flagpoles to be left unfinished while ensuring a lifetime of aesthetic beauty.

Our satin aluminum finish is achieved in a multi-pass, mechanical rotary sanding operation utilizing specially formulated abrasives. This attention to detail ensures a consistent, brushed aluminum finish that has become the industry's first choice for low-maintenance and enduring flagpole finishes.

Satin Satin - SAT
Anodized

Standard anodized finishes include clear, dark bronze and black.

Clear Anodized Clear Anodized - ACL
Dark Bronze Anodized Dark Bronze Anodized - ADB
Black Anodized Black Anodized - ABL
Powder Coat

Standard powder coat finishes include clear, bronzetone, black and white.

We can also powder coat in a custom color. Simply provide an RAL color number or color chip sample and we can provide the perfect powder coat color for your next project.

Black Powder Coat Black Powder Coat - BLK
BronzeTone Powder Coat BronzeTone Powder Coat - BZT
White Powder Coat White Powder Coat - WHT

Shaft Descriptions and Options

Mounting Height
Mounting Height

The exposed height in feet above grade and is measured to the top of the of the flagpole shaft. *When truck and ornaments are added, overall height can be greater by 1'-2', which can be relevant in areas with height ordinances. Upon request and at no additional charge, Mounting Heights can be shortened to achieve the desired overall height.

25' Mounting Height Exception
25' Mounting Height Exception

Flagpoles offered in 25' mounting heights are manufactured in a single piece with an overall length of 26'-6". Below grade, 2'-6" will be inserted into the ground sleeve. When the truck and finial are attached, the nominal height of the completed flagpole will be 25'. This industry accepted standard allows shipping in a pup trailer at a significant freight savings. Full 27'-6" shafts are available upon request.

Butt Diameter
Butt Diameter

The diameter in inches at the base of the shaft.

Top Diameter
Top Diameter

The diameter in inches at the very top of the shaft.

Wall Thickness
Wall Thickness

The thickness of the shaft in inches, varying from .125" to .500".

Single and Multi-Piece Shafts
Single & Multi-Piece Shafts

Flagpoles are available in both single and multi-piece designs. Flagpoles 45' and larger will contain multiple piece shafts based on Mounting Height. Sections can be easily field assembled without any loss of structural integrity, leaving only a hairline joint to indicate that the shaft is not a single piece flagpole.


Find Your Wind Zone

When looking to buy a residential or commerical flagpole, it is important to choose a flagpole that will meet or exceed the maximum wind speed for the area.

The National Association of Architectural Metal Manufacturers' (NAAMM) Guide Specifications For Design Of Metal Flagpoles (ANSI/NAAMM FP 1001-07) have determined the maximum wind speed for flagpoles flying a nylon flag and unflagged flagpoles using ground set installations. Once you have determined your Wind Zone, choose a flagpole will meet or exceed the maximum wind speed for your area for both nylon flagged and unflagged.

ANSI/NAAMM FP1001-07 publishes a map from the ASCE/SEI 7-05 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures showing values representing nominal 3-second gust wind speeds in miles per hour at 33 feet above ground level. A reproduction of this map is provided and should be used to specify the proper flagpole for your application. Please note that Special Wind Zone Areas, including but not limited to mountainous terrain, gorges, and ocean promontories, should be examined for unusual wind conditions.

Safety Note:
The specification and installation of a flagpole with wind speed ratings that do not meet the maximum wind speed for the project location, or flagpoles flying flags and banners that exceed the NAAMM recommended flag size, can result in personal injury and/or property damage. Flags should always be removed from the flagpole during severe weather events.
