Satin - directional 36-grit sanded satin Deep Luster finish. When new, satin finish catches light reflections casting a strong sheen. The metal will oxidize and turn dull within two years. To retain the original appearance consider upgrading to an anodized finish.
Clear Anodized - an electrolytic passivization process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. Anodizing increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance and will maintain the original luster for many years.
Bronze Anodized (bronze color) - an electrolytic passivization process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. Anodizing increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance and will maintain the original luster for many years.
What flag size is best?
Flag size is determined by flagpole height. Normally the horizontal length of the flag is 1/4 to 1/3 the height of the flagpole. This guideline applies to commercial manufactured flagpoles 20' and taller. Always follow the manufacturer's flag size guidelines when purchasing a flagpole.
What is wind speed rating and why is it important?
- Wind speed means the movement of air in an outside environment. Movement can be affected by many factors including geographic location, weather, pressure gradient and jet streams. High winds can cause unpleasant side effect.
- Select an appropriate strength flagpole for the wind zone area where the flagpole will be displayed.
- Flag size and wind force are used to determine the load on a flagpole resulting in the flagged and unflagged mile per hour wind speed rating.
- Display of an oversized flag could cause the flagpole to fail.
- A flagpole not suitable for the geographic location wind speed often times fail.
- Wind speeds are generally higher along coastal areas than inland. They are also higher in open country than the center of cities. Wind speed becomes greater as the height above ground increases.
- Wind speed rating map and wind speed rating charts will help you select a flagpole suited to your location.The wind speed rating map is based on a 50-year period of recurrence at an elevation of 30 feet above ground level.
