Is A Flash Collar Needed for an Installation
Flash collars are needed when there will be a concrete pad around the base of a pole. The purpose of the flash collar is to hide the top of the ground sleeve, or to anchor bolts and nuts to give a pleasing look to the installation. Some installations will be in flowerbeds or in lawn areas. It is okay not to use a collar in these situations. Dirt, rocks, bark or grass can be pulled up to the pole to make the collar unneccessary.
