Our flagpoles are Swedish-made and designed to last for generations. Every single detail in a Formenta flagpole is therefore carefully chosen. All fastening elements are made from hot-dip galvanized steel for optimal durability, and the halyards are especially made to withstand extreme weather conditions.
In order to guarantee quality, we work closely with RISE who performs solidity tests. We also have a well developed quality- and environmental management system. In addition we are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.
Our assortment of flagpole accessories is second to none. In addition to regular accessories and spare parts, we offer several smart solutions like portable bases, wall brackets, flagpole wash, flagpole lighting and devices for flag exposure like Windtracker and Roto-Top. Our flagpole accessories are also characterised by quality and precision to last for many years.
All our Swedish flags and pennants are made from marine polyester (160g/m2), a woven textile with a double, dual-thread plied yarn which is proven to be durable and strong. The durability of a flag is completely dependant on textile and sewing technique. A new flag should be raised in calm weather to stabilise the seams. A pennant should be replaced at least once a year, but a flag lasts longer since it is not used on a daily basis.
There are no rules on how long a flagpole should be. Our general recommendation is that one third of the flagpole, or 3-4 m, should stand above related building. Consider any level difference between the building and the placement of the flagpole.
All our flagpoles are easily installed with our hot-dip galvanized tilting hinge base. See our installation manual for detailed instructions on how to install a flagpole.
Our 15-year-warranty covers all fiberglass flagpoles and the hot-dip galvanized flagpole base. Successful claim results in a new flagpole. In order to keep your flagpole clean and fresh, we recommend tilting the flagpole and cleaning it with hot water and soft soap. Boat wax can be used for extra lustre.
