Internal Rope System Flagpole Accessories and Parts
We all know that the internal rope (halyard) system flagpole is a system used for raising and lowering the flag; and that the parts and mechanism of this system is located inside the pole in contrast to that of its counterpart, the external rope (halyard) system where the rope and metal accessories are left dangling on the pole. This is more appropriate to use for permanently raised flags such as those in churches, monuments, homes, parks, business and some government buildings because the possibility of theft and vandalism seldom happens since access to the system is located inside a hinged door compartment in the bottom pole that is locked by a door with keys.
Also this system does not require high-maintenance because the internal rope (halyard) system flagpole parts and accessories are fully protected and ensured to last, maybe dozen of times longer than the exposed flag. Yet thereís one part that must be checked and often, the stainless steel winch because it is the device that performs the effortless way to raise and or lower the flags. It must be lubricated frequently in order for it to work flawlessly. But then if your internal rope (halyard) system flagpole is using M-winches, maintenance is no longer necessary because its design is far more advanced and different from the stainless steel type.
Is it better to use the internal rope (halyard) system flagpole than the external system then? Actually, these two options do not necessarily outweigh each other because they serve different purposes. It is more appropriate to use the internal system, as Iíve mentioned above, for permanently fixed flags and when the located in areas prone to theft and vandalism. External system on the other hand is fitting for frequently raised and lowered flags since check up of the assembly is made often as the ceremony is done daily.
