Assembly Instructions for Supreme Flagpole Range

Posted by David Moginie on

FLAGPOLE MOUNTED OVER GALVANISED GROUND TUBE IN CONCRETE

This flagpole option is supplied with a galvanised steel mounting tube, to be set in concrete.

This option is supplied with the following components:

  1. Truck c/w pulley 1
  2. Aluminum tube 1
  3. Steel mounting tube 1 (Note: comes inserted in the pole)
  4. Halyard cleat 1
  5. Halyard and fittings to fit pole 1
  6. Screws

    **PLEASE NOTE THE TRUCK ,CLEAT AND HALYARD ARE SUPPLIED SEPARATELY BY COURIER**

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

(Please read these instructions thoroughly before attempting assembly).

Step 1. TRUCK ASSEMBLY

This is attached to the top of the pole by a “force fit”. Tap into the pole until secure with a piece of wood or similar. UNDUE FORCE IS NOT NECESSARY - DO NOT HIT DIRECTLY WITH A HAMMER.

Step 2. HALYARD ASSEMBLY

The halyard can now be fitted by threading it through the pulley. Fit the loose sister clip supplied as detailed on the separate instructions.

Step 3. HALYARD CLEAT ASSEMBLY

Line up directly below pulley on truck, position in appropriate place and mark. Positioning is typically between waist and shoulder level when the pole is mounted.

Drill with 3mm drill (or similar), and secure with stainless steel screws.

Step 4. VERTICAL MOUNTING TUBE (comes inserted in the pole)

Excavate hole to suit ground conditions (approximately 1100mm deep x 300mm diameter). Brace tube temporarily in precise vertical position in hole, and concrete into place as illustrated. Set approximately 750mm to 1m of pole in concrete.

Step 5. TO MOUNT POLE

When concrete has set remove bracing and slide pole over tube (if possible, we recommend that the pulley should face away from the prevailing wind so that the flag will usually stream directly out from the halyard side of the pole).

Secure Flagpole to mounting tube with self tapping screws. Drill holes towards the base of the pole 100mm from the ground. (This is to stop the flagpole being removed, not for stability purposes).

 

FLAGPOLE MOUNTED WITH PARAPET MOUNTING BRACKETS

This flagpole option is supplied with a parapet mounting brackets.

Read instructions for assembling the truck,  cleat and halyard above.


Brackets should be positioned approximately 1m apart, and the pulley should line up with the
planned cleat location.

If the pole is to be attached to a wall with a flashing or other projection to be cleared, the easiest
method is to pack it out with an appropriate piece of treated timber just over a metre long. 

The brackets can be aligned and fitted to the timber, which can then be fixed to the wall as one unit. If packing is not necessary, the mounting brackets must be fitted individually to the wall, directly in line with one another, to ensure the pole will be precisely vertical.


Step 1. HALYARD CLEAT
Line up directly below pulley on truck if to be fitted to pole, and place in appropriate position (if positioning between brackets, fit after mounting pole). Mark screw holes and drill with a 3mm ( or similar) drill. Secure with self-tapping screws. Note - Halyard cleat can, if more convenient, be fitted to wall etc.


Step 2. TO MOUNT POLE
Having adopted one of the options in number 3, fix brackets to a sturdy wall etc as appropriate - i.e.coach screws or bolts into timber, dynabolts into concrete etc. Slide the pole into the brackets, and tighten in place with the bracket grub screws. If possible, position the pulley away form the prevailing wind, so that the flag will usually stream directly out from the halyard side of the pole.


Step 3. END CAP
Fit to the bottom of the pole by tapping into place, as for the truck

 

FLAGPOLE MOUNTED ON VERTICVAL MOUNTING BASE

 

Read instructions for assembling the truck,  cleat and halyard above.

 

Step 1. VERTICAL MOUNTING BASE


Position mounting base on firm horizontal surface, mark, drill and secure as appropriate - i.e. dynabolts into concrete, large screws or coach screws into timber etc. Pack if necessary to ensure pole will be precisely vertical.


Step 2. HALYARD CLEAT


Line up directly below pulley on truck if to be fitted to pole, and place in appropriate position. Positioning is typically between waist and shoulder level when the pole is mounted. Mark screw holes and drill with a 3mm (or similar ) drill. Secure with self-tapping screws.


Step 3. TO MOUNT POLE


Slide pole over base (if possible, we recommend that the pulley should face away from the prevailing wind so that the flag will usually stream directly out from the halyard side of the pole). Secure Flagpole to base with self tapping screws (drill holes to suit).

This flagpole is manufactured from top quality materials and components exclusive to Flagmakers, and under normal conditions will provide many years of trouble free service.

To avoid possible damage to flags and/or pole, do not site in very exposed positions, and do not fly flags in excessively strong winds, or fly oversize flags.

Note: sticker with arrow indicates correct way up.
