Some Factors to Consider 

  • We offer quality rather than cheapness
  • We offer a 12 months warranty against shredding of our supplied windsocks with the exception of extraordinary atmospheric conditions such as cyclones
  • We do ask however that should your windsock become prematurely shredded that the windsock be returned to us (at our cost) so that an inspection can be made to determine how we can improve
  • Our Poles and Masts  are designed to comply with AS Standards and Specifications
  • Magnetic Particle Testing can be arranged for welding on windsock poles or masts 
  • We want you as a customer or potential customer and ourselves to to be satisfied and confident in the windsock and accessories and to this end please do not mull over any problem relating to any aspect of the windsock system supplied but call us at 0417 096 202 or email info@weatherworks.com.au


Approvals & Placement of Windsocks


  • We remind that CASA does not approve windsocks and there is no approval process; there is a recommended standard for major airports only 

  • Where prior inspection of a potential windsock site is involved arrangements can be made where feasible to discuss and jointly determine the suitability of the proposed site

  • The top of a hill or mound is not necessarily the best location for the placement of a windsock as wind conditions can vary considerably from conditions elsewhere 

  • The top of a hangar is also not great for windsock placement due to turbulence factors

  • In regards to windsock placement please be mindful of trees, buildings and other facilities as well as line of sight so that employees or other involved public can see the windsock(s)

 Placement

Of importance is the placement of the Instrument Shelter being 1.2m from ground level and in the Southern Hemisphere having the door facing South being the side that does not get sunlight at any stage.

Instrument Shelters placed next to club BBQ’s, under shade-cloth or with the door facing in any other direction other than South will not necessarily be reliable as also Instrument Shelters built from cupboard or door louvers and and plywood or similar
