This is a 40-foot high, external halyard, two section tapered, aluminum Flagpole. It has a flagged windspeed of 140-mph when flying the recommended 5' x 9.5' MIL SPEC "Storm" U.S. Flag in inclemency.
When flying a daily 8.95' x 17' MIL SPEC "Army Post" U.S. Flag; then 120-mph; or a 10' x 19' MIL SPEC "USMC Post" U.S. Flag; 115-mph.
Remember the larger the U.S. Flag, the lower your windspeed rating. Exponentially this is true for smaller Flags. For example this 40' Flagpole flying a 2.33' x 4.5' MIL SPEC U.S. Flag will approach the unflagged windspeed is 195 mph.
If you are emergency respondents and have a Flagpole at your location then we highly recommend that you shelve a 2.33' x 4.5' MIL SPEC U.S. Flag, for things like Hurricanes.
