What makes the 7th generation Flex Blade® advertising banner technology innovative and the best pole set on the market for advertising flags and banners? The innovative, refined technology of the 7th generation Flex Blade® emerged as a result of seven previous pole set trials, each constantly reviewed and critiqued at various stages by customers worldwide. We gained valuable feedback from our customers and made targeted improvements at each stage.
In the developmental stage (AKA Generation 1) of the Flex Blade® Teardrop advertising flag and Flex Banner promotional banner, we searched for a material which would bend and flex without breaking. After numerous hours of R&D, we decided on a graphite and composite mix for the pole, which initially seemed to work well. However, when tested in higher winds, the product did not hold up as well as we had expected, particularly the larger size poles.
From there, we began our second trial, "Generation 2." In the Flex Blade® Generation 2, we tried using aluminum for the base of the pole and fiber glass for the tip. This combination was successful in temperate weather (not too hot and not too cold), but the Generation 2 stage simultaneously coincided with increased competition among flag advertising vendors. We then identified inherent flaws in the standard fiber glass simplicity and once again worked to further improve our product. We developed a comprehensive system utilizing a combination of composites, all of which are lighter, stronger, and less sensitive to hot and cold weather. With the aluminum base and composite mix for the tip, "Generation 3" was born.
As many Above All Advertising, Inc. clients are located worldwide, we strive to create a product that would prove resistance in all climates. We were extremely excited as we had no breakages and our customers were very pleased with the new and improved line. After some time passed, we still received the occasional complaint for pole breakages in high wind areas. As Above All Advertising, Inc. always aspires for true perfection, once again, we re-visited our product development. We repeatedly analyzed the aluminum material and realized that because aluminum has "bend memory," it remains bent in high winds. In order to be truly stable in all climates, we searched for a product that would bend or Flex, but also return to its original position. Welcome to "Generation 4."
Once again, we were at the forefront of an increasingly competitive market and Generation 4 was a pole system which was more durable than anything ever made before. With knowledge and experience, we went on to develop the entire system from this amazing composite mixture. This has been the evolution of the most advanced and most reliable pole system on the market. The Flex Blade® flag line outperforms their competition and allows customers to receive the highest return on their investment. We continually refine our pole set making them even lighter - Generation 5, less costly - Generation 6, and even stronger - Generation 7. We still use this amazing combination composite which no one has been able to duplicate.
