Bases and flanges play an important part in keeping your flagpoles upright. Browse through our range of bases and flanges to see what we have on offer.
For 12m and taller goal posts in any code (AFL, NRL or Rugby Union) we offer an optional upgrade to a hinging spigot base and ground sleeve setup.
This setup will allow the lowering of these tall goal posts by lying them over rather than a crane having to lift them vertically from the ground.
There are many methods use to lie tall poles over from a hinge and depending on the height some can be done with people power alone (walked down by a small number of people).

Ground sleeves are the traditional method of installing goal posts and many flagpoles. The pole slips into the ground sleeve and lifts out again for maintenance or the off season. With most sports you can install an extra ground sleeve and shift your goals sideways to spread the wear on the turf in the goal square.
A flange base is essentially a plate on the bottom of the pole used to bolt the pole down to a concrete pad or deck. More expensive and more complex to install than a spigot base they are usefull when fixing the pole to an existing concrete pad, or you have several poles in a line and want to be able to plum them all exactly the same using jacking nuts under the plate. This can be a challenge when using spigot bases! Often the plate is placed under turf, garden mulch or a flash cover to hide the nuts and plate.
Makes a connection between the ground and the flagpole and reinforces the highly-loaded lower portion.
It is possible to mount a flagpole on a vertical wall to save space, or get a flag up high for the price of a short pole! This is particularly usefull when trying to avoid piercing a roof with fasteners. A word of warning though, make sure the wall you fix the pole to is strong enough to withstand the loads. We recommend using chemical anchors rather than expanding anchors such as dyna bolts because flagpoles vibrate a lot and can work a dyna bolt style of anchor loose.
