If you are interested in a pole for your home or business, please read this entire blog and watch video below to learn your basic pole knowledge.  This information is fundamental for pole purchase from Vertical Joes.


We carry 3 basic types of poles:  

Residential Tension Poles (aka Poles At Home)

When at home, a removable pole can be placed up and taken down very quickly with ease.  Removable poles can be fixed to the ceiling by a ceiling plate with a permanent fixing, but the poles themselves will always be removable. These poles are pressure based and can be placed on either a solid ceiling or a metal or wooden beam. The poles cannot be placed on false ceilings.

Poles over 3370 mm, 132.7 inches or 11 feet .07 inches must be permanent and reinforced. Check with the manufacturer for structural details.


This pole can also be upgraded to a convertible version to make it more multi-use and ease storage. 

Commercial Tension Poles (aka Studio Grade Poles)

If you are opening a studio or using any venue for commercial use, we recommend that you use fixed permanent poles. These are dual lined and can be either one piece or two pieces. 

These poles are then attached from the ceiling and the floor, using a permanent ceiling mount, and pinned to the floor. This will allow you to keep your poles for longer and know that they can withstand the continuous use. 

These poles can be used from 2.8m high to 4.7m if using one-piece pole or 4.2m if using a multi-piece competition pole.


Stage Poles (aka Free Standing Poles)

Free standing means that the pole is not fixed to the ceiling and no pressure is needed.  The Free Standing Stages are recommended for ceilings higher than 3.5 meters (138 inches or 11 feet 6 inches) or for studio spaces with false ceilings.

Now that you have these details, the residential and tension pole are the most popular poles.  Watch this video before moving on to the next step.
