Product Description

The Drive-on base goes under the tyre of your vehicle and uses its weight to support the Portable Flagpole, ensuring it doesn’t fall over. This type of base is fantastic in subtly supporting the flagpole using the weight of the vehicle alone, thus preventing any unsightly bases.

The drive on base is generally seen in car showrooms the weight of the parked vehicle simply holding the flag in position. These are easy to uninstall and reinstall and come in a maximum height of 15m, mainly for safety, due to the pressure which could be placed upon the base of the pole in high winds. The base is 500mm wide and 210mm deep designed and shaped to hide subtly under a standard car tyre.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need planning permission before installing a Flagpole?

To install a flagpole permanently, you will need planning permission from your local council.

Under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, flags come with the definition of an ‘advertisement’ and their display is controlled by the Town and Country Panning (Control of Advertisements) Regulations 1992.

However, under Schedule 2 of the regulations, the national flag of any country, including the Union Flag, is exempt from advertisement control provided ‘Each flag is flown from a single vertical pole and neither the flag nor the displays any advertisement additional to the design of the flag’.

Our experience is that in general planning permission is straight forward to obtain, particularly if there are other poles in the area which form a precedent. Our team can help you with this and provide all the information you will need for your application.

Internal or External halyard?

You can choose from either an external or internal halyards on a flagpole. The internal halyards are vandal proof and also aid with noise reduction. With the rope rigged on the inside of the flagpole, it gives the advantage of added security, durability, and does not interrupt the flowing line. 

Do I need a rotating arm?

A rotating arm is used typically for portrait orientation flags. It is a light metal arm at the top of the flagpole which holds the flag out even when there is no wind.
