Flag Poles – What pole system should you use?

So you have chosen some of our beautiful flags to fly in the great outdoors…

Festival flag hire - X Base

Carbon-fibre extendable pole with ground spike

Lightweight and collapsable they can be couriered in our special courier bags and are easily erected, making them the most easy and cost effective way to get the job done.

They also benefit from leaving very little trace on the ground, with 20mm diameter hole per flag.

It is worth noting, by their very nature they are delicate compared with other methods and are not ideal where you may have high winds (above 25mph) or high spirits (climbing enthusiasts, trophy hunters, revellers etc).

They are perfect for weddings, private parties and many corporate events.

6m bamboo pole with scaffold or PVC sleeve

Festival flag pole – bamboo
By far the most attractive and more robust than the telescopic poles these are suitable for more demanding circumstances – they can withstand higher winds and can take rougher treatment. They are still relatively light and cheap, so can be self erected. This makes them ideal for longer term events and where scaffold is not appropriate. Also worth noting – Assent by reveller will almost certainly end in breakage! They leave a larger 50 mm diameter hole in the ground which can be filled with soil.

Hire costs – £12.50 per pole and ground insert (install only as the poles are too long to return by courier).

Purchase costs – 6m bamboo poles for £15 each plus £6.50 per ground insert.

Festival flag hire - X Base

16ft or 21ft scaffold pole with scaffold tube insert (putlock)

Festival flag pole – scaffold
Used on festival sites all over the world this method provides complete peace of mind and is resilient to almost anything.

It requires hiring scaffold, putlocks (a shorter 4’-5’ piece of scaffolding) and swivel clamps, most appropriately from a firm local to the event.

Most large events need scaffolding for lighting etc., so it is usually best to do a bulk site order to save additional contractors. We can provide a full installation and removal service, or if you have a competent site team we can dry hire. To keep costs down we often send a member of our team to deliver and oversee installation with your crew. They leave a larger 50 mm diameter hole in the ground which can be filled with soil. Putlock protector sleeves are also available to hire for £3 each.

Rotational boom arms

These allow our Silk Standard and Arena flags to fly in low wind conditions or indoors.
