Why Buy a 20' Tilting Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole?
The 20' Tilting Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole not only offers the advantage of flush mounting (if an in-ground commercial flagpole isn't viable) – it can also quickly be laid flat on the ground by one or two people, for maintenance or in case of inclement weather. This hinged flagpole is mounted into a concrete pad or base, using a ring that's welded to its base and a sturdy hinge pin.
It's recommended that shoe-base flagpoles not be installed into existing concrete surfaces like sidewalks and should be installed in a new concrete pad. Should you install a shoe-base flagpole into existing concrete, chemical anchorage or epoxy bolts are advisable. Shoe-base flagpoles are not recommended for higher elevations or for building rooftops. It's advisable to consult with an engineer of record before installation; remember to allow enough clearance for trees, power lines and buildings.
A 20' commercial flagpole is a good choice for a one- to two-story building, and the 20' Tilting Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole is rated for winds up to 270 mph when not flying a flag. Included are a 5" gold ball ornament, single revolving truck, 40' of white polyester halyard, two snaphooks with covers, a 9" aluminum cleat and the shoe base, as well as four anchor bolts and three stainless Allen head screws for mounting.
Please note: while a Tilting Shoe Base Flagpole is strong and robust, it's actually about 85-90% as strong as an embedded flagpole. However, the flush-mounted flagpole design allows you to install these commercial flagpoles in settings where an in-ground model would be impossible. Taller shoe-base flagpoles are available – call for details.
