The patented PushPull™ System was designed and developed in New Zealand by Nexus Developments Limited, a company that specializes in designing innovative products for the international flag and banner industry.
The system allows approved flags, banners, lighting, signage (or other objects), to be conveniently raised, lowered or repositioned, typically in difficult to reach areas.
FlagTrax utilises the PushPull™ System to provide an award-winning system specifically designed to raise and lower fabric flags and banners. Specialised flags (‘FlagTrax Flags’) are attached to a flexible PushPull™ rod which is then pushed up a track.
Nexus Developments Limited owns the international intellectual property rights to the PushPull™ system, which is protected by a number of patents and patents pending in several countries.
Patents protect the intellectual property incorporated in the apparatus for remotely raising, supporting and lowering the objects, and also covers the objects themselves when they have been designed specifically for use in the apparatus.
Another patents relate to the shape of the flag or banner designed to fit the curved or shaped track system, and more specifically to the function of the system.
