Strong winds can sweep flagpoles away. In windy places, it is very hard to feel confident with cheap residential flagpole kits. The flagpoles and other flag accessories included in such kits cannot withstand the amount of force generated when powerful winds strike the flags. A falling flagpole is very dangerous. It can injure people and damage properties.

 

The flags for windy places must have strong flagpoles and properly-built foundations, and have the proper size and fabric. A flagpole must be made to withstand the wind and elements. Commercial aluminum and fiberglass flagpoles are best suited for locations with harsh weather conditions. The pole must have a thick wall for maximum durability while still having enough flexibility to absorb the forces generated by strong winds.

 

The flagpole must be secured on a foundation. There are different kinds of foundations used for flags. A deep cement foundation is most suitable for windy places. In places where freak winds are normal, the best option is to have a removable flagpole.

 

Other flag accessories like pulleys and halyards must be rated to withstand the forced generated by the wind and elements like heat and rain.

 

Small-sized flags are best for windy places since they catch lesser wind. A loosely knitted fabric that allows most of the wind to pass through further lessen the impact of the wind. The only issue with this kind of fabric is that it does not fly freely when winds are weak. So there you go, some of the basics for flags for windy places.
