Posts & Poles

SET FLAG POLES IN THE EASIEST WAY – SECURE SET SAVES YOU TIME AND EFFORT, AS WELL AS MONEY.

From now on you can forget about using those heavy, dusty concrete bags – use the alternative solution for concrete when setting poles and posts.  We are here to make things easier for you, as well as to protect your poles/posts below ground.   Secure Set is a 2-part polyurethane measure-mix-pour solution that can help you set your poles and posts in a matter of minutes versus the conventional concrete option.  Why use 3 to 4 60-80 lb. bags of concrete that you must lift, load, unload, carry to the site, then lift again to mix in a wheelbarrow with a shovel and water?  Just one 20 lb. box (2 gallons) of Secure Set, with 2 measuring cups, mixers, a drill, and mixing containers will be all you need to set most flag poles.  Choose the simple, easy, alternative to concrete.

Secure Set is an inert plastic, high-density, closed-cell, polyurethane water blown foam that mixes within a few minutes and sets up within 5 minutes after being poured. This solution helps to save you a lot of time and cut labor cost since time is money.

 

SECURE SET HIGH DENSITY CLOSED CELL FOAM:

  • Light-weight and easy to carry
  • Easy to mix
  • Sets up within minutes compared to concrete’s setting time of 24+ hrs.
  • Superior commercial high density foam – 5.1 lb. density
  • Superior tensile strength at 130 psi unlike unreinforced concrete
  • Great compressive strength at 100.1 psi and 14,414 lbs. per sq. ft.
  • Latches onto the dirt, rocks, and roots to help secure the post in the ground
  • Closed cell foam – Higher moisture, rain and weather endurance once set up than concrete
  • No need to dig below frost line – just bell out the bottom of the hole to eliminate frost heave
  • Doesn’t leach anything into the soil, unlike concrete with its alkalinity issues
  • Doesn’t break down in the soil over time (known to last at least 40 years)
  • Contains no CFC’s or HFC’s – an environmentally friendly product

It’s time to forget about all the nuisances of working with concrete and try Secure Set.

 


NOTE

Flag pole recommended setting depth – 10% + 2 ft. of the overall height of the pole. The diameter of the hole should be twice the diameter of the pole (allow for 2″ of foam around the pole.)

 

Sandy soil?
If your soil has a high concentration of sand, you should consider using a concrete form tube in the ground, packed around it with good soil, then set the post in the tube.
