Why Buy a 30' Tilting Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole?
There will be instances when, due to building codes or other restrictions, an in-ground commercial flagpole won't be an option. That's where a 30' Tilting Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole can be a good choice. This hinged flagpole can be laid flat for maintenance or inclement weather and is attached to a concrete pad with an aluminum flange and bolts (not unlike a light pole).
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 30' commercial flagpole is the right choice for a three- or four-story building, and the 30' Tilting Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole is rated for wind speeds up to 270 mph when not flying a flag. Included are a 6" gold ball ornament, single revolving truck, 60' 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 on request - call for details.
