|Take your flag to new heights with our easy to
use telescoping flag pole.
These telescoping flag poles are virtually indestructible.
What is a telescoping flag pole? Telescoping
flagpoles are made from different diameter tubes that slip inside each other.
Each section is raised and locked into place, starting with the smallest
section. Due to the tapered effect, telescoping flagpoles maintain their
strength to height ratios. Telescoping flagpoles do not have ropes to tangle and
wear or hardware to constantly clang in windy conditions. Telescoping flagpoles
are manufactured in heights from 16 ft. to 20 ft. In heights over 20ft, the pole
can become very heavy to lift, therefore to save your back, look for a pole with
spring assist. Prices range from $150.00 to $750.00. These poles are
manufactured out of aluminum and have an anodized finish. The life expectancy of
the telescoping flagpole is 10 to 30 years with minimal maintenance.
What are spring assisted telescoping flag
poles? Verify that the manufacturer offers a spring assist system. On
smaller flagpoles the spring assist system is great because minimal strength is
required. For flagpoles that are over 20 ft. the spring assist is beneficial
because the pole weight can vary from 12lbs. to 20lbs.
