Both external and internal halyard flagpoles are fabricated from all new seamless steel tubing. Diminishing sections, welded together, form a tapered appearance. Sizes below are most commonly used, we can fabricate other sizes to any specifications.
Ball (optional) – 14 Ga. Aluminum with flash seam. Gold anodized is furnished unless otherwise specified or choose from Clear Anodized (Silver) or finished to match shaft.
Truck – heavy duty, INTERNAL halyard revolving-type with 26 stainless steel ball bearings. Finished to match flagpole shaft.
Halyard – standard equipment includes one stainless steel aircraft cable complete with proper size flag arrangement, shock spring, counterweight, beaded retainer ring and flag snaps.
Winch – new, improved winch, mounted inside shaft, is operable only by a removable crank handle. Gearless and self-locking at any point, it eliminates the need for a separate brake. New direct-drive permits rapid raising and lowering of flag with little effort. As stainless steel cable unwinds from winch, it passes up through the shaft, over truck sheave to the outside of the shaft where retainer sling provides a sliding anchor. Counterweight, heavily coated with neoprene, attached to retainer sling, allows halyard to be lowered for fastening or removing flag. Then, halyard is raised completely out of reach of vandals.
Collar – ornamental base or flash collar of spun aluminum with a diameter of at least 1” larger than the foundation sleeve.
Above fittings are included as standard equipment on all Diminishing Section Flagpoles with External Halyards. As with all of our Flagpole lines, optional accessories are available.
