Our fiberglass flagpoles are manufactured to duplicate the classic Greek Entasis taper design. All poles have an ultra-hard, gel coat finish that stands up to the harshest of weather conditions. Our rugged gel coat finish is especially well suited near salt water or in other extreme weather conditions, our poles will not corrode, pit or rust. Since fiberglass is a non-conductor, no grounding is required; thus installation is easy and inexpensive. Our innovative molding process produces a flagpole shaft with a tensile strength of 50,000 pounds per square inch. Inside a steel clam shell mold, seven layers of reinforced fiberglass roving, mixed with a polyester resin is aligned in a vertical plane for maximum strength and placed on a thick layer of gel coat. An inflatable bladder is layer the entire length of the mold. The mold is closed, the bladder inflated and the resulting pole is created by subtle pressure and slow curing during an exothermic chemical reaction.
