FLAG POLE FEATURES

PILA’s flag poles are manufactured using one of only 4 specialised tapering machines in Australia and traditional spun-tapered tube is available as an optional upgrade.

Flag poles feature a rope halyard designed to fly a horizontal flag using a traditional external or vandal-proof internal rope halyard.

It is important to observe correct protocol in flag raising ceremonies. When purchasing a flag pole, attention should be paid to correct sizing for the site, flag pole positioning and the number of flag poles required.

PILA’s flag poles stand at memorials, RSL clubs, military facilities, local government offices, embassies, parliamentary buildings and schools, universities, hospitals, police, fire and ambulance stations, hotels and resorts, and car dealerships. Our clients include the National Capital Authority, Department of Defence, the City of Sydney and McDonalds.

BANNER POLE FEATURES

Banner poles a feature banner arm designed to fly a vertical banner. PILA offers 2 styles of banner arms; a rotating banner arm kit with no rope halyard and a rotating windspin banner arm and internal halyard kit.

The rotating banner arm is a cost effective option for those requiring a good quality, simple banner pole. You would normally add a hinge base to a pole to make changing the banners as easy as possible.

The rotating windspin banner arm with internal halyard allows the banner to be lowered  and changed from the ground without lowering the pole.

PILA’s banner poles include a rotating finial, reducing stress on the pole, wear on the banner, and allowing the banner to track with the wind without tangling.

Banner poles are a simple, attractive and cost effective advertising tool that works for you 24 hours a day and can easily be updated with a quick change of banners. All PILA banner poles feature bases that allow developers take their banner poles to the next site, giving an excellent return on investment. Local government install banner poles in prominent locations and rent them to local businesses or community groups, creating a healthy additional income stream.

REPAIRS AND SERVICING

We don’t service or repair old flag poles but we do supply a range of spare parts for current model poles. Most servicing can be done yourself or with the help of a handyman. We recommend replacing aluminium flag poles approximately every 10 years to avoid metal fatigue. Metal fatigue is simply a matter of time and in aluminium is not visible on inspection. The only way to accurately determine if aluminium has metal fatigue is an x-ray test, which is very expensive, so replacing old poles is the safest option.
