Composite fiberglass is by far the superior material for the construction of loadbearing 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. FiberglassFlagpoles 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. All PLP poles are computer designed based on NAAMM and AASHTO standards. Loadbearing and deflection performance is verified through extensive and on-going destructive testing. The coating materials on all PLP poles are of the highest quality and standard to ensure long lasting and maintenance free beauty. Unlike metal, fiberglass is maintenance free. Flagpoles made of this unique material have a multi-coated high luster finish that is durable and soil resistant. Since fiberglass absorbs sound, the noisy clanging of snaps on metal is not a problem. Because fiberglass is non-conductive, grounding is not required unless wire halyards are used. Even the installation is simple. The lightweight characteristics of fiberglass flagpoles make it easy for a homeowner to install the residential models. All that is needed is a little help and a few household tools. Made in the New Hampshire. Flag-Works has the PLP Fiberglass Flagpoles in stock.
