STANDARD WIND SOCK

Made of bright fluorescent fire orange vinyl impregnated nylon fabric, which can be seen for miles! The fluorescent color penetrates haze and gives high visibility even when the sun is obscured. Stands out against any background, summer or winter. Attaching grommets are solid brass spur type, which won't pull out of the reinforced hem. Will withstand 75-mph winds!

When ordering, measure across your frame to determine the diameter; not across the flat wind sock mouth.

Airtex windsocks are made in five sizes to meet recommended proportions for maximum effectiveness; they are not cut-down versions to meet a price. Airtex windsocks are in use worldwide at private, local and international airports.

BRIDLED WIND SOCK

WIND SOCK SERVICE TIPS

Windsocks should be located away from obstructions, such as buildings and trees, which cause turbulence that diverts the true wind direction. Turbulence will cause oscillations, resulting in excessive flexing of the sock fabric, shortening fabric life. The worst place for a sock is atop the hangar. The best place for a sock is out in the field in clean air. Service life varies from one to three years, depending on the severity of flexing and air pollution.
