About Composite Fiberglass
- Composite fiberglass is by far the superior material for the construction of load bearing poles.
- Fiberglass will not rust, rot or corrode. This of course enhances the pole's long term strength and appearance, particularly in salt water or corrosive environments.
- Fiberglass has a significantly greater strength to weight ratio than competitive materials and therefore its lighter weight lowers shipping and on-site handling costs.
- Fiberglass is non-conductive, therefore enhancing safety from electrical hazards.
- Poles are computer designed based on NAAMM and AASHTO standards. Load bearing and deflection performance is verified through extensive and on-going destructive testing.
- Available in a range of standard colors but we can also match any specified color to tie in with the particular architectural color theme of a building or landscape area.
- Manufactured with a custom designed fiberglass woven roving which allows us to fabricate over 75% of the reinforcing glass in the vertical plane, maximizing desired rigidity and axial strength.
- The coating materials are of the highest quality and standard to ensure long lasting and maintenance free beauty.

Yardarms and Gaffs Explained
- A yardarm is a horizontal section on an in-ground flagpole which holds a separate halyard (rope) on each end. They are most often seen in nautical type installations along coasts and lakes. The style mimics the look of a tall ship with masts that had yardarms for rigging sails to.
- The gaff is a single pole that extends off of the vertical flagpole at an angle. This type of pole will be used to attache another halyard (rope) to a single flagpole.
- It is not uncommon for both a yardarm and a gaff to be used on a nautical flagpole. Many harbors or yacht clubs display this sort of pole with the American Flag, State Flag, Town, Private Ensign and other flags all on one pole.
- Remember that with each additional flag, the pull increases on the base of the pole. A flagpole of this sort needs to be very strong to withstand coastal winds and flags should be removed during bad storms to protect the pole and property around the pole.
- Flagpoles are available in different strengths based on the wind ratings in your location. Click here and enter your zip code to find out what your wind rating is: Wind Rating Chart
