Description

Orange Heavy-Duty Windsock - FAA Compliant Description and Features

Our international orange safety windsocks are made of a high quality, long-lasting polyester fabric that is tested in real-word and lab conditions. Perfect for aviation, airport and industrial purposes, our nylon orange windsocks conform and surpass FAA standardsfor colorfastness for windcones (how long the color lasts in outdoor weather and UV exposure) and tensile strength. Our Airport windsocks are made of 400D polyester that is waterproof and has superior tensile and colorfastness properties to other windsocks on the market.  

Quality Construction- You can be assured that our orange airport windsocks are made with quality materials and are built to last: The body of the windsock is made of 400D nylon, the inlet mouth is constructed with 2 layers of 400D nylon, 1 layer of 450D oxford reinforcement that protects against high velocity winds gusts. 

High Strength Materials: Independent tests on our 300D polyester resulted in 1218 Warp (N) and 1221 Weft (N) tensile strength. What does that mean? It means your windsocks are made of a high-strength fabric that is tested to meet the demands of daily use in extreme conditions

Light and Responsive Airport Windsocks-   Lightweight windsocks are imperative to detect slight wind speed and directional changes. Our windsocks are made of a 300D polyester that fly well in even the slightest breeze.

 


Sizing

Heavy-Duty Windsock Sizing

Windsock size is often dictated by your viewing distance and how the windsock will be mounted. Of course, if you already have a frame, your windsock diameter will be set and you only need to choose a length that worlds for you. See our Visibility of Windsocks Guide below for more information

How to Measure your Existing Windsock

Fitting a Windsock onto Your Double or Extended Hoop Frame

If you have a double or extended hoop frame, you should ensure the replacement windsock you purchase will fit over both the outer and inner hoop of the frame. Every frame manufacturer has a different standard and thus some measuring is required to ensure that your replacement windsock will fit onto your frame. Your two options are:

  1. If you do not have an existing windsock: Measure the diameter of the second hoop as well as the distance from the first hoop to the second hoop. See our visual guidebelow on which dimensions we require.
Infogrpahic on how to measure a double hoop or extended windsock frame

2. If you do have an existing windsock that fits your frame: Measure diameter of the inlet mouth, the length of the windsock as well as the diameter of the outlet mouth. See our guideabove on how to measure a windsock.

Installation

Heavy-Duty Windsock Installation

For Frame Sizes 18”, 24”, 36” from the Custom Windsock Co.


Step 1) Purchase a Windsock Frame

Step 2) Purchase a stainless steel ¾ NPT female coupling and a ¾  NPT male pole. One size of the coupling will thread into the bottom of the windsock frame and the other will thread onto your pole. The pole you purchase may be long or short, depending on your application and if you are going to attach it to anything else. These can easily be purchased from your local hardware store or here: 

Step 3) Attach the pole onto your structure

  • Side of building or wall: You may want to use a vertical mount like this:
  • On another pole: If you’re looking to put your windsock high in the air on a pole, chances are that a small diameter pole like above won’t do the trick. You can use another coupling with one side being ¾ NPT and the other side being larger so it can attach onto another larger diameter pole that can be installed in the ground. The other option is to attach it onto your larger diameter pole with hose clamps or banding

Step 4) Install the windsock with the use of HD UV rated zip ties. 


Note: all frame manufacturers have different specifications. Contact the manufacturer of your frame for instructions on mounting.
