Airport windsock

Red white nylon windsock from Star Standard.


Windsocks are usually used in airports or chemical plants where there is a risk of gas leakage. They are sometimes located in windy locations on both sides of the highway.
The wind direction indicated by the windsock is the opposite direction of the windsock (please note that the wind direction is designated as the traditional compass pointing from the wind; so the windsock points true north to indicate the south wind). The wind speed is the angle between the windsock and its benchmark; the angle between the windsock and its benchmark at low wind speeds is smaller; and the flight level with strong winds (larger angle).
The windsocks used in many airports emit lights at night, whether they glow at the top or have lights installed inside.
The airport windsock consists of a main pole, wind rope and wind sock; the wind sock is orange and white, and the wind sock can be stowed at any time. The diameter of the tuyere is 0.3m; the length of the wind sock is 1.2m, and the total height is 2.06m, which can be customized according to customer requirements.
