Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the difference between a Sectional and Telescoping Flag pole?
The main difference between these two types of flag poles if the Rope (Halyard) system. The Sectional has a rope system that you will clip the flags to and then use that to raise or lower the flags. This allows you to fly flags at half staff if desired. The telescoping pole you would clip the flags to the pole itself and then raise the entire pole. The advantage to this system is that is it very user friendly and the flags are attached to no tangle clips.
Both types have their advantages, and that is why we offer both. We also offer a halyard conversion kit that will add a rope to the telescoping flag pole if you would like that option.
How many flags can fly on the poles?
The telescoping poles can fly 2 3x5' or 4x6' flags or combinations of those sizes. The sectional poles do not have limits on the number of flags you can fly or the size of flags but you will need to order additional flags clips with the sectional kits if you want to fly more than one flag. These can but purchased on the accessory page. We do recommend limiting your flag sizes to 2 4x6' flags unless you reinforce your flag pole.
What is the wind rating on the Alpha 1 and Sectional Flagpoles?
Our USA made Flagpoles made from 11 Gauge (Sectional) and 12 Gauge (Alpha 1) Aluminum. They are rated for 70+ mph sustained winds with flags on the pole. We do recommend however during high wind events that you do lower the flags to reduce stress on your Flag pole.
