Flagpole Halyard - Spools
Halyard is rope for hoisting and display of a flag fastened with flag snaps on a ground set flagpole. 500' solid braid nylon halyard spools are available in 3 sizes.
- Solid braid nylon
- High Strength
- Good Elasticity
- Mildew and rot resistant
- Abrasion resistant (not immune to sharp edges, burrs or rough surfaces)
- ¼" x500' spool - 1486 tensile strength, safe load 90 lbs
- 5/16"x500' spool - 2295 tensile strength, safe load 135 lbs
- 3/8"x500' spool - 3240 tensile strength, safe load 192 lbs
Over time nylon and other synthetic ropes weakens for a variety of reasons including overload (caused by sudden strain such as high wind gusts), ultra violet ray exposure, extreme heat and abrasion.
How often should you replace flagpole halyard? Each time a flag is replaced check the halyard for signs of wear. When obvious signs of halyard wear are present, new rope can be pulled through with worn rope thus avoiding a costly service call.
