Vinyl Fabric and Windsock Construction
vinyl fabric has superior visibility due to the vibrant color and
reflective nature of the fabric. The vinyl is made of high grade
polyester fabric that is double coated with fluorescent vinyl for
durability and visibility. Coated vinyl lasts longer than laminated
vinyl which can de-laminate over time. Vinyl windsocks work well in
coastal areas and harsh climates. They are also useful where enhanced
visibility is needed.
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.
