Custom Printed Windsock in Kuwait for Oil and Gas and Industrial Purposes

Buying custom windsocks in Kuwait or any other location within the Arabian Gulf can be a difficult. There are many suppliers who buy products form overseas and quality control is sub-par. When order quantities are large, the need for physical samples is paramount and many local suppliers cannot fulfil this demand. See our step by step guide on buying custom printed windsocks in Kuwait for more information on how to get the best products at the best price for your business: 

  1. Determine Your Requirements:

    • Decide on the size of the windsock you need. The size should be appropriate for the location and purpose, such as indicating wind direction at an airport or a construction site. The most common sizes are 18"x60", 18"x72" and for commercial aviation 36"x144"
    • Consider the color and design of the windsock. Custom windsocks can be made in various colors and patterns, and you can add your logo or text for personalization.
    • Pro tip: Many companies in the Kuwait require   BS EN ISO 20471 conformance for Hi-visibility clothing for their windsocks. This is a common mistake as this requirement is only applicable to hi-visibility clothing that has reflective on it. Unless your windsock has reflective elements (which would prevent it from flying well due to weight), this stnadard does not apply. Many potential suppliers could be turned away from this requirement in the RFQ specification and thus leaving you with a small pool of suppliers who will also not meet the specification as it is not applicable.  

  2. Check for Quality Standards and Reputation:

    • Ensure that the supplier implements quality standards for manufacturing windsocks and performs quality checks on all outgoing goods. Sometimes you only find out that you were sold a poor quality product is after it is installed. Avoid this costly mistake by researching your supplier and viewing testimonials on their process and the quality of their finished products
