Several decades ago, back when IRA bombs exploded in the IRA headquarters, the IRA put up a flag pole to symbolize their struggle against the British. The IRA even had their flag painted on the flag of Belfast. It was taken down by the British Army at the end of the war. But it stands to reason that without flags that many people in Northern Ireland would never have known that the IRA even existed.
Flag poles are extremely popular as well as a practical way to recognize groups of friends, relatives, or acquaintances. Having said that, they can also be beneficial or hurtful depending on how they are utilized. In this online article, one individual wrote: A few years ago my family experienced a bitter battle against the loyalist paramilitaries (ebonite). A member of our extended family scaled a flag pole during a bonfire ceremony and lit a fuse, intending to blow up the flag but unfortunately, the flame inadvertently went up and burned his hand.
Even if you do not have a hand or arms that are made for using spikes or poles, you can still construct sturdy, fully protective coatings for flag poles. These coatings are usually referred to as wind resistant or weatherproofing flag pole coatings. Wind resistant coatings are usually constructed of galvanized steel with a protective polyester coating. This material is able to withstand both strong wind and hail storms.
Another type of protective coating is the fully enclosed flag pole coating. It can be constructed from galvanized steel, aluminum, or acrylic. It can have a single panel or two panels covering an entire flag pole. It has an open face that allows the UVB light to pass through. UVB light has been shown to have beneficial effects on the health of human skin and can reduce sunburns by almost fifty percent.
The poles can also be protected by galvanized steel rods that are tied together at each end with galvanized screws. The flags can then be attached to the poles by sewing a specially made fabric patch on the pole. The flag pole grommets are made from heavy- duty nylon and vinyl. They allow the flag to be hung easily even under windy conditions without causing any damage to the pole. The grommets come in many different colors and are treated to resist ozone and sun damage. They have fabric coverings that can be removed and replaced when exposed to inclement weather conditions.
The best flag pole kit will usually include an anvil type clamp to install the flag pole with the aluminum first. Then the clamp is connected to a generator that provides the electricity for the flag pole. Once the flagpole is erected, you will need to install the supporting arms which are typically made of strong aluminum or stainless steel. These arms will provide support for the top and bottom of the flag. After you have successfully added the three main components to your mansion set up you will then be able to enjoy your new flag pole.
