INDEPENDENCE stainless steel cable based, internal halyard flagpoles provide the best solution to the problem of vandalism.A smooth, flush door configuration resulting from the thick, high strength aluminum casting welded into the precision cut door opening supplies the strength needed when a significant opening is made in a flagpole shaft.
The heart of the INDEPENDENCE flagpole is the custom stainlesssteel gearless winch assembly, designed specifically for the flagpole industry and the first introduced by Concord Industries.The winch is mounted on a patented swivel base plate for greater security while continuing to offer ease of maintenance.This swivel winch plate allows the winch to be operated from the handle access hole in the door. A cast winch access hole button in the door provides additional security or can be removed to facilitate daily operation of the flagpole without removing the door.
Cable assemblies are constructed using stainless steel components with double copper crimped cable end loops and stainless steel snaps. The counter weight is the new Concord patented design with thick attachment shafts on both ends. One end attaches to the Flag Arrangementand the other to the Retainer Ring using stainless steel connecting links. A thick FC11 style spun aluminum collar is standard on flagpoles with up to an 8" base diameter. Flagpoles with a base diameter of 10" or 12"have with a 2 piece, split cast aluminum collar with hidden assembly tabs.
Standard finish is a smooth Satin deep luster polished finish. Also availale at modest up charge are various anodized finishes, and power coated painted finishes.
