A fine selection can be found here

Great company to deal with and post out very quickly

The 12inch galvanised ones are very very strong

Craig
so you think the 24 inch ones are a bit much then?? Are the 12 inch ones big enough for say a 21ft pole and the Antron though just incase I decide to go higher???

The 12 , 18 and 24 inch refers to the standoff measurement , i.e. From wall face to end of bracket less 3 inch to the centre of the pole

If you don't have a soffit board and guttering to clear then the 12 inch ones will be more than adequate , you can also increase the gap between top and bottom brackets for even more strength

As Craig said it is more to do with how much you need to stand the pole off the wall to clear guttering etc. I've used the smallest C shape ones on a conservatory which are only 6 inches, I currently use 24 inch ones on the house I'm now in.
