Our flagpole safety inspection is a fundamental service we offer. It is widely recommended you have a flag pole safety inspection every six months to fix any damage to our flag or flag pole before it gets worse. Our flag pole and flag maintenance service also covers associated wires and shackles, hooks, pole carrier and slings which are classed as lifting equipment and therefore need to be inspected on a six-monthly basis. We recommend that flag poles are checked monthly due to weathering and to ensure they are safe. Therefore we deliver the following flag pole inspections on a recurring basis, or as a reactive emergency service:

  • Checking the general condition of the flag pole for damage or rot.
  • Checking the fixings on the flag pole – making sure they are tight enough and not rusted or sheared off.
  • Checking the halyard – to ensure it moves and is not frayed or damaged.
  • Checking the pulley system.
  • Making sure the flag is clean.
  • Checking the stitching and looking for damage to the flag.
  • Ensuring the heading line and toggle are attached and in good condition.
