Even sometimes we feel that it might topple over when a strong wind causes the flag to act menacingly. Although, maybe due to its size it may seem fragile because it tends to sway dangerously at times, never did it fall or break, right? Ever wonder why?
This type of flagpole is called a display flagpole. It has been specifically designed to attract onlookers, particularly the message flags With its sheer lightweight appearance, one cannot resist but take a glimpse at it because its movement tends to draw a lot of attention. Display flagpoles have been very useful to car dealers, during grand openings and real estate sales because more people are eager to drop by and see what’s inside these shops and stores.
There are two types of display flagpole materials available in the market today – aluminum and fiberglass.

What distinct characteristic does each of these display flagpole types hold? Aluminum display flagpoles are sturdier yet lighter compared to fiberglass. Fiberglass display flagpoles on the other hand appear to be more stylish because of the glossy coat of gel finish that actually prevents it form soiling and scratching. With the distinct character that each holds, you can easily choose the appropriate material for your area.
