Why Buy a 30’ Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole?
Sometimes there are instances where an in-ground commercial flagpole is just not really a workable option. That’s when a base mounted flag pole with a shoe base can be a great choice!
Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpoles are designed somewhat like a highway light pole, with an aluminum flange that’s bolted securely into a concrete pad or base. Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpoles are a popular choice for parking lots, playgrounds, sidewalks and other applications where an in-ground commercial flagpole can’t be installed.
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 30’ Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpole is a good fit for a three- to four-story building and is rated for wind speeds of 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, along with four anchor bolts.
Please note: while Shoe Base Aluminum Flagpoles are rated for high wind speeds, they are about 85-90% as strong as an embedded flagpole. Their main advantage is their flush-mounted flagpole design, however, making them a good pick for a situation where an in-ground commercial flagpole would not be feasible. Taller shoe-base flagpoles are available – call for details.
