Peg Pole vs 1 Inch Pole : What’s the Difference?

Trying to figure out what style of pole you should install? Many customers ask what the difference is between a 1 Inch Pole and a Peg Pole. We will break it down for you!

First things first

First and foremost, no matter which pole style you chose, you are receiving the strongest poles in the industry. Any selection you make will be the perfect choice.

Hole Size

The biggest difference in determining which pole to install, is the hole size you will have in your deck. The Peg Pole fence will leave a dime size hole and a 1 Inch Pole with leave a quarter size hole in your deck. Both poles come with a deck plug to plug the hole whenever the fence is taken down.

Hole Size Comparison based on Pole Type

Pole Core

1 Inch Ultra Poles have a “Twin-I Beam” reinforced extrusion core. This core reinforcement runs from the top of the pole, all the way to the bottom of the pole to minimize flex.

Peg Poles have an injection molded ABS bushing that runs from the base of the pole, 16 inches up (the most of any peg pole on the market!), to offer solid strength where it’s needed most. The 4 Inch long by 1/2 Inch Stainless Steel Peg extends out from the bottom of the pole and will go fully into the deck when installed.

Pole Strength

Aircraft grade aluminum and unique reinforcement styles not only far exceed the ASTM Standard for pole strength, they are not even in the same league as the cheap (and sometimes plastic) poles you find on Amazon listed products. With minimal strength differences, 11% between these two top poles, you are making the smartest decision in Pool Fences Poles, no matter which style you choose.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
