Our glassfibre flagpole are made using fine fibres of glass as part of a fibre-reinforced plastic material. It is combined with resin to form an extremely strong and durable composite which makes it the perfect material for flagpoles. We are the only UK manufacturer of glassfibre flagpoles are manufactured at our Newton Aycliffe based factory. They are available in a range of sizes and are regarded by architects and engineers as the very best available in the UK.
Our commercial glassfibre flagpole range consists of white tapered poles, each with a galvanised steel hinged base plate and gold finial top. They come in heavy duty as standard, but are also available in extra-heavy duty and ultra-heavy duty. What you need depends on where your flagpole will be installed. For example, if you are right on the coast, we would recommend the ultra-heavy duty flagpole with a wall thickness of 5mm to combat the elements; the thinner the wall thickness, the weaker the flagpole will be!
You can also choose from a range of roping systems, or halyard, which allows the flag to travel up and down the flagpole.

Regular maintenance and servicing is essential to keep your flags and flagpoles looking their best. Harsh weather conditions and environmental factors can take their toll, so we recommend weekly, six monthly and yearly checks to keep your flagpole looking its best.
Every six months, we recommend you check the stability of the flagpole. Here are the steps you need to follow:
At this point, we’d recommend a full service or inspection of the flagpole should be carried out by a specialist. A log/report (provided by the contractor) of the date and works completed should be kept for your records.

We recommend you take any flags down in adverse weather conditions which, for a standard flag, would be when wind speeds are expected to exceed 30mph. If there is a requirement to keep flags flying in adverse weather conditions, specialist storm flags are the best option as they will withstand wind speeds up to 45mph. Once the bad weather has passed, the flagpole should be inspected using the steps above before you re-fly your flag. Here you can read more about how the weather affects the lifespan of your flag.
