100mm x 8.0mtr rotating arm flagpole on a hinge base

Strong and flexible: an Intrack flagpole with rotating arm

Team Intrack can engineer and install a flagpole for your specific needs. This image shows one of our 100mm x 8.0mtr rotating arm flagpole on a hinge base.

Rotating arms, or rota arms, on a flagpole, extend the life of the flag being flown by allowing the flag to rotate in the wind rather than stay static.

The Intrack rotating arm flagpole is usually supported by a hinged base. With a hinge base, you can lower your flagpole to the ground without completely removing it from its footing. With rotating flagpoles, ropes aren’t used to raise and lower flags. The hinge base allows ensures easy flag/banner changeover and repair or maintenance without the need for use of reach trucks.

An ounce of prevention: flagpole and flag maintenance tips

Extend the life of your flagpole with maintenance

Flagpole inspection and maintenance is important for keeping your flagpole looking good and your flag flying high. It’s even more important to ensure the integrity of the flagpole remains and it presents no safety risk.

The Intrack team completes routine maintenance for many of our corporate flagpole and council customers. However, as we have many residential and small business customers, we’re often asked for self-managed flagpole maintenance tips.

To maintain your flagpole, every six to 12 months:

Routine maintenance can prevent severe damage and breakdown of neglected flag poles.

  • Inspect the foundation and base
  • Check the pole for signs of bending, fatigue, wear or weakness
  • Check halyards for signs of fraying, abrasion or weakness
  • Check the fittings
  • Lower and clean the finials to remove all dust and dirt build up
  • Check the rotating arms
  • Take down flags in wind exceeding 65 km/h

A word on flags

We don’t sell flags, but since we do engineer, fabricate, install flagpoles, we do know a few things about flags. For example, we know flags need maintenance, too.

  • Lower your flag when high wind is forecasted. Weather events, particularly wind events, impact your flag.
  • Lower your flags at night. You don’t have to worry about watching for weather changes.
  • Watch the corners for wear and fraying. Repair as soon as you notice it to prevent further damage.
  • Ensure your flag flies freely without contact to tree branches, buildings or other objects.
  • Routinely wash your flag in warm water.
  • Always dry your flag completely before storing.

Football by any other name

A goal is not a goal is not a goal

With the world swept up in World Cup fever, we at Intrack started thinking about soccer versus football, and all the different games that fall under the “football” name. The below infographic caught our eye. While soccer isn’t included in the mix, it does offer a great overview of the differences between American football, Rugby and Australian Rules football.

If the World Cup has you thinking about new soccer goals or replacing old ones, you want to talk with us. Our FFA and FIFA compliant goals come in standard and custom sizes.

However, if your preferred football is AFL or Rugby, we’ve got you covered there too with high quality footy goal posts and rugby goals.

And, if you lean American, give us a call. Most likely we can engineer a solution for you, too.

Let’s have a kick

Our 100mm untapered internal halyard flagpoles are very cost effective and can be fabricated to 7.0 or 8.0 metres tall.
