The Aluart Crank Flagpole is a theft-proof flagpole for banners and flags. Thanks to the internal hoisting device, this flagpole is especially suited for public places such as pedestrian zones, outside public buildings, or shopping streets.
The convenient Aluart Crank Flagpole is equipped with a built-in winch that offers the best possible protection from theft and is operated with a removable hand crank. The plastic head of the flagpole guides the halyard out from inside the tube. The special cord is designed to bear very heavy loads and has a breaking load of 1,322 pounds. The flag is fixed to the flagpole by a galvanized ring at the end of the halyard and lengthways down the pole with the supplied plastic tubes. A counterweight caters for the smooth lowering of the flag. The two-piece flagpole is available in sizes from 16’ 5” to 39’ 4” and is fixed in place with a ground socket and the appropriate center ring. The Aluart Crank Flagpole is optionally available with a rotating aluminum head.
The plastic tubes must be checked after strong winds and from time to time. Missing tubes or torn loops on the flag must be replaced promptly. It is very important to replace worn parts immediately.
In order to avoid tangling the rope on the winch or wrapping the flag around the pole, the counterweight must always be used (even without a flag!) The flag must have a loop for the plastic tubes every 24 inches. Always fix the weight to the lowest flag loop and to the lowest plastic tube! In stormy weather (Beaufort 8+ winds) the flag must be taken down for safety reasons.
