Flagpoles are an integral part of any building, park or organization, representing patriotism, pride and a sense of community. A flagpole serves as a symbol of unity and strength, but it can only do so if it is properly constructed and maintained. A flagpole that is not properly installed or maintained can cause damage to itself, the flag and the surrounding area. One of the most important components of a flagpole is the flagpole truck, which is responsible for holding the halyard, or rope, and the flag. A high-quality flagpole truck is essential for ensuring the longevity of your flagpole and the safety of your flag.
In this guide, we will take a closer look at the Silver Cast Aluminum External Halyard Revolving Truck from FORTISVEX, a high-quality flagpole truck that is designed to provide the strength and durability that your flagpole needs.
Construction and Design
The Silver Cast Aluminum External Halyard Revolving Truck is made in America, and is constructed of high-quality cast aluminum. Cast aluminum is known for its strength, durability and ability to withstand the elements, making it an excellent choice for a flagpole truck. The 1-1/2" outside diameter pulley is made of machined aluminum and spins on a 1/4" stainless steel axle, providing smooth and easy rotation. The pulley is designed to handle a maximum halyard diameter of 5/16", ensuring that your flagpole is able to fly even the largest of flags.
The truck is secured to the top of the flagpole with a spindle of 1-1/4" NPT threading, and is designed to work on outside diameter flagpoles that are up to 3-1/2" in size, with a female fitting installed that accepts 1-1/4" NPT threading. This makes it easy to install on a variety of flagpoles, regardless of their size or shape.
Self-Lubricating Ball Bearings
One of the key features of the Silver Cast Aluminum External Halyard Revolving Truck is its self-lubricating ball bearing assemblies. These ball bearings ensure that the pulley rotates smoothly and easily, even in harsh weather conditions. Additionally, the self-lubricating design of the ball bearings increases the life of the product, ensuring that your flagpole truck will provide years of reliable service.
In addition to being a high-quality flagpole truck, the Silver Cast Aluminum External Halyard Revolving Truck is also designed to accept an ornament. The truck accepts spindle threading of 1/2"-13NC, and comes with a stainless-steel set screw to secure your ornament to the top. This makes it easy to add an additional level of style and distinction to your flagpole, making it even more of a centerpiece in your community.
The Silver Cast Aluminum External Halyard Revolving Truck is available in a sleek and stylish silver color. While this is the only color that is available in stock, FORTISVEX.com offers the option to order the truck in a different color, with a lead time of approximately 3 weeks. All of the colors are painted to order, ensuring that you receive a high-quality product that is tailored to your specific needs.
