Nylon Fabric and Windsock Construction
nylon fabric we use to fabricate our windsocks is engineered to be both
light weight and durable. The fabric is constructed of high density
polyurethane coated nylon, which is easily inflatable and water
repellant. Nylon windsocks work well in mild climates and areas with
of our windsocks are manufactured in accordance with FAA specifications
for fabrication set forth in FAA Advisory Circular No. 150/5345-27D.
The 18" diameter x 96" long windsock corresponds to FAA size 1 and the
36" diameter x 144" long windsock corresponds to FAA size 2. Other sizes
are manufactured to the same standards as the 18" and 36" windsocks.
All windsocks are manufactured and assembled in the United States of
America from the best materials available.
throat end of each windsock is triple hemmed for durability using UV
resistant bonded, polyester thread. In addition the throat and tails of
our larger windsocks (18” and larger) are reinforced with a triple
hemmed band of white cotton duck fabric for additional durability. All
windsocks are fitted with weather resistant #2 brass grommets for easy
attachment of the windsock to the frame.
