While all of our aluminum flagpoles require little maintenance to retain their natural shine, our anodized flagpoles offer an even simpler solution. Our satin brushed finished flagpoles will generally keep clean with the rainfall in most areas, however; because the exterior of the flagpole is aluminum, it will continue to oxidize throughout its lifetime. Special cleaning agents may be required to remove the discoloration caused by this process of oxidation. Our anodized flagpoles do not encounter this problem. The process of anodization actually creates a barrier on the external surface of the aluminum flagpole, thus eliminating the oxidation process. Because the aluminum is not exposed to the elements, it cannot oxidize. The anodized finishes allow you to clean your flagpole with simple soap and water. For this reason, we recommend the purchase of an anodized finish on all of our flagpoles.
Guaranteed for five years and available in heights ranging from 20ft – 80ft, these poles are great when you want to put two or more flags up. Their design is associated with a sailboat mast making it popular in coastal communities. They have a wall thickness range of .125” - .375” and a butt diameter range of 5” – 12” along with a wind speed range of 85mph – 120mph.
Shipping Times & Costs
Typical delivery time is 3 to 6 weeks. These large flag poles are too long for UPS. They ship by truck from a number of warehouses across the US. Shipping costs vary according to the flagpole and your location, and are typically not less than $100. Shipping costs can exceed $500 for larger poles and orders for multiple poles. Residential deliveries are more expensive than commercial locations. Our shopping cart is not able to calculate these costs, and will add $24.95 for shipping. You can call in toll free 1-877-734-2458and we will obtain a shipping quote for you prior to placing an order. Alternatively, place your order online and we will contact you by email with a shipping cost, normally by the end of the next business day. At this point you may cancel the order without penalty. Some of the larger flagpoles are made to order so there may be a cancellation charge once you accept the shipping costs and the order is in progress.
All poles are double spiral wrapped with protective paper and shipped in a hard fiber tube.ÿWARNING - The flagpole shaft will stain if allowed to remain in contact with wet or damp wrappings. If there is any sign that the shaft or its shipping tube has come in contact with water during shipment, remove from the tube and unwrap immediately. If the shaft is to be stored outdoors, it must be stored unwrapped, out of the tube and off the ground.
