Airport Windsocks Our windsocks are solid, robust, effective and most sizes are proudly made in Australia. They are ideal for commercial airports, industrial sites, mines, factories, vehicle racetracks, freeway bridges, heliports and marine moorings. Our large and medium windsocks are made from extra heavy duty fabric, they are much stronger and will last up to 50% longer than most other brands of windsocks.
What does the Woomera rocket range, Mt Isa mines, Bundaberg Rum and Melbourne Airport all have in common with each other - they have all used our windsocks!
The standard aviation windsock is large, it's manufactured with the highest quality fabric available, has a 3 foot diameter mouth and is 12 feet long. These windsocks come complete with a flexible lightweight rust proof hoop sewn into the fabric to hold the windsock open and in place when attached to a windsock frame. For airport operations "white" is the primary windsock colour "yellow" is the secondary windsock colour. Manufactured to Civil Aviation Authority recommendations. Don't forget to order a stainless steel windsock frame to mount your windsock (see bottom of page for more info).
AIRPORT WINDSOCKS The standard fabric used on our medium and large windsocks is a heavy duty fabric that is UV stable. The quality is higher so the cost is a little higher. The longer life fabric really does justify the purchase of our windsocks. Standard windsock colour, white or as an option, yellow.

If you have a good quality windsock you also need a top quality frame to support the windsock and to allow it to swivel correctly into the wind.
Our solid windsock frames are constructed from industrial grade stainless steel with the design including a "no tangle" stand-off stainless steel hoop. The size of the windsock mouth opening is matched to the stainless steel hoop on the windsock frame for easy mounting. The frame is designed to hold the windsock open and clear of a windsock pole.
Our windsock frames are designed around a vertical stainless steel post with 4 solid welded stand-off steel straps and a steel hoop for attaching the windsock, at the bottom of this post is a horizontal welded mounting plate. This plate is normally connected to a matching plate on the top of a windsock pole. The size of this plate is 100mm long x 75mm wide x 5mm thick, +/- 1mm with the centres between between the four (4) bolt holes being 3 inches on the long side and 2 inches on the short side. It's best to drill the holes in your own mounting plate after you get the frame - just to be on the safe side.
Simple "easy care" rust proof bearing surfaces are standard. At this stage we do not sell windsock poles due to the high delivery cost.
