The Look Company is seeing how well a new flag/banner program will fly.

The south-end manufacturer is piloting its FlagTrax system, which enables banners to be quickly put up and taken down in Barrie.

FlagTrax is so quick and easy to use, it does away with a lot of time and expense.

And that opens up opportunities for both revenues and advertising celebrations and events, said Dave Cohoon, The Look Company’s FlagTrax project manager.

“Because you can put up a flag in the matter of seconds, it gives local businesses the opportunity to advertise,” said Cohoon.

FlagTrax reach Tool makes it even easier to change flags

For ease of use and convenience the access point to the FlagTrax Flag (the bottom of the FlagTrax track) can be positioned at eye level, or, if additional security is required, the access point can be positioned higher, most commonly around 2.5m.

This can be reached readily with the use of a small and lightweight step stool or the NEW FlagTrax Reach Tool.

 

Using the FlagTrax Reach Tool is fast and simple:

  1. Its ‘claws’ fit over the locking cap at the bottom of the track.
  2. The integral key is operated from the bottom of the tool and releases the locking cap.
  3. The ‘claws’ are used to pull the PushPull Rod down.
  4. After the flag is changed and the PushPull raised again, the tool is used to push the locking cap back into place.

Done!

Note: The standard tool is 1m long but is also available at different lengths to suit your special requirements.

FlagTrax Approved by Ausgrid

FlagTrax has been approved for use on Ausgrid Light Poles

A recent major development has been the approval by Ausgrid of the installation of FlagTrax Systems and FlagTrax Flags onto their street lighting columns.   This approval is the result of extensive wind loading tests leading to the development of a unique system incorporating a simple FlagTrax Storm Release Clip designed to release and lower FlagTrax Flags in heavy winds.

Ausgrid is a major electricity distribution company which owns, maintains and operates the electrical networks supplying 1.7 million customers in Sydney, the Central Coast and Hunter regions of New South Wales. They maintain 250,000 street lighting poles on behalf of councils in this territory and which many thousands are steel street lighting columns which are now suitable for supporting FlagTrax Systems.

This approval is significant and has removed a previous obstacle to the integration and adoption of FlagTrax by many councils.
