Auckland Transport Rail Services Department have now had the FlagTrax system installed for 10 months at 2 of our rail stations.
With live overhead lines for electric trains, the use of cherry picker to swap flags over was not an options for us, so we decided to trial out the FlagTrax system due to its simplicity in changeover of the flags.
I have personally witnessed the flags being taken down and put back up again in literally 2 minutes, which is a tremendous time saving for us compared to your standard flags.
The system itself is extremely durable, and this has been tested in a few storms Auckland has over winter months. Ultimately, I would personally recommend; and have been recommending this system to other departments, and organisations. It is easy, smart looking, durable and highly affordable starting from initial install, to your everyday flag swap costs.

Apart from providing a much needed boost of colourful promotion along the streets, the banners are one of the most effective ways of promoting our events and festivals to both locals and the thousands of people who arrive via cruise ships each year,” said Paul.
The existing light poles that stretch along the two main roads in the area had been in need of upgrading for quite some time so local business owners were delighted as they watched the new banners and tracking system being installed.
Paul Littman added, “By using our existing poles we saved money on the initial installation and moving forward, now that we can change the flags over ourselves, there will be huge cost savings compared to the older banner system and even opportunities to raise revenue through leasing the highly visible spaces to promote local business and events.

“Since replacing a number of our standard street flag brackets with FlagTrax® in the late 2000's we have had a good opportunity to compare its performance against our original brackets.
FlagTrax® is much more cost effective and simple to use and as a result is the product of choice by us, our external promotional partners and installers. We have recently upgraded and expanded our FlagTrax network and are very pleased with the results, our district looks vibrant and we have a system that is flexible, durable and affordable.”

“Since joining council one of the jobs I have taken back in house is the changing of the street flags using the FlagTrax system. It is so quick and easy to change a flag its child's play, and we have saved time and thousands of contractor dollars.”
