Flagpole Rigging Systems

A halyard is a rope to which the flag is attached and is used to either raise or lower the flag. There are various types of halyard systems.

External Halyard   Click here to view an enlarged drawing.
This system consists of a braided polyester rope running down the outside of the pole and secured using a cleat. A stationary single pulley is standard for this rigging. This is a relatively inexpensive rigging system and is used where flag security is not an issue.

Internal Halyard (Commercial Series)   Click here to view an enlarged drawing.
This system consists of the braided polyester rope routed through the interior of the pole shaft and secured using a cam cleat. Access to the cam cleat is protected by a locked door. A revolving ball top is standard for this rigging. This system is employed where vandalism is a concern.

Internal Halyard (Architectural Series)   Click here to view an enlarged drawing.
This system consists of a combination of stainless steel cable and durable plastic chain routed through the interior of the shaft and secured using a fastening hook. Access to the chain and hook is protected by a locked door. A revolving cap is standard for this rigging. All internal halyard systems are used where vandalism is a concern.

Internal Skyline Halyard (Both Series)   Click here to view an enlarged drawing.
This system is suitable for all poles with a six inch butt or larger and consists of a stainless steel gearless winch mounted inside the flagpole shaft and is accessible only by a removable locking access door. The winch is self-locking at any point and is operable only with a removable crank handle through an access hole in the shaft. A stainless steel cable is used throughout and is routed through the interior of the shaft and is wound on the winch. A revolving cap is standard for this system as well.
