Hurricane season means different things to different people. For some of us, hurricane season is simply that time of year when the weather man’s radar screen is full of bright colors swirling across places like Cuba and the Florida Keys. Sadly, for others, hurricane season is much more than swirling colors on a map; it’s a time when extra precautions must be taken to insure the safety of our families and possessions.
If you’re someone that lives in an area that’s prone to being hit by hurricanes, one such precaution that you might want to consider taking is that of buying a flagpole strong enough to resist the high winds that such a storm can produce. Standard flagpoles can bend and even snap in such conditions, leaving anything within striking distance at risk.
Our Hurricane Series Flagpoles are the perfect option. Due to their increased wall thickness and butt diameter, they can withstand up 255 MPH when unflagged and 150+ when flagged. Standard accessories include a cast aluminum cleat with mounting screws and a galvanized steel foundation sleeve. They’re also available with either an internal or external halyard.
A durable flag is also essential to anyone living in an area with high wind conditions. Our sewn polyester flags are the toughest on the market today. Their open-weave design reduces fabric stress and is more resistant to high winds. However, due to the fact that they’re made of a heavier fabric, they require more wind to fly than would a flag made of, say, nylon. They also require more effort to take down and put up. We offer a six month warranty on these flags.
