Large Flag Poles

Who Can Install Large Flag Poles

When most of us think of large flag poles we think maybe thirty to forty feet. However there are three flags in the world that go beyond being large.

In Aqaba, Jordan there is the worldís largest free standing flag pole. It is 430 feet tall. It can be seen from Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. In the 1980ís South Korea erected a 328ft pole in Daesong-Dong. North Korea retaliated by putting up a 528 foot pole in the DMZ (demilitarized zone) in the Propaganda Village.

Letís get back to large flagpoles for commercial properties. Many of these flagpoles need to be installed by a contractor who has done this kind of work before, hopefully an engineer who has access to a crane. It will be needed to lift it and put it in the hole dug in preparation. A ground sleeve is in place and concrete poured.

We came across large flagpoles ranging from 35 feet to 130 feet. Before you buy check the wind speed rating. We would suggest that you look for one which has a low risk of wind damage. You may want to ask for the wind speed rating on your flag pole.

There are charts you can use to check the wind speed for large size flag poles. It depends partly on the height of the pole that is above ground. The charts will give you the wind speed that can have an effect on your pole. The charts may differ from one company to another. But the difference should not be much.

These oversized flag poles canít be shipped by UPS. They must be transported by trucks and rail. The charts will also give you the diameter, thickness, the model name and the list price without taxes and shipping cost.
