Why Buy a 25' Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole?
There are situations where building codes or other circumstances can rule out installing an in-ground commercial flagpole. In these cases, a flush-mounted flagpole with a shoe base is a great alternative! Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpoles are bolted into a concrete pad or base using an aluminum flange.
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.
Carrot-Top's 25' Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole complements one- to two-story buildings and can stand up to 270 mph winds when not flying a flag. Included are a 6 gold ball ornament, single revolving truck, 50' of white polyester halyard, two snaphooks with covers, a 9" aluminum cleat and the shoe base, along with four anchor bolts.
Please note: Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpoles are rated for high wind speeds, but are about 85-90% as strong as an embedded flagpole. The base mounted flagpole design, however, enables you to install these commercial flagpoles in areas where in-ground models would not be feasible. Taller shoe base flagpoles are available on request – call for details.
