Commercial windsocks and masts for industry

A windsock is typically used to measure which direction the wind blows. Whilst the majority of people will relate to wind socks at international airports, helipads or on the side of motorways, commercial wind socks are also used to identify the wind direction and gauge wind speed in many other settings and locations such as: golf courses, camping sites, fayres and events.

On worksites in the gas and oil industry where daily maintenance works carry immediate dangers to life and health, safety windsocks are the first step to determining; safe zones free from toxic exhaust gases, where those activities can be performed safely, or to determine the direction of gas outflows.

Why do I need a windsock?

Windsocks are used to indicate visible wind direction and speed. They are most commonly used at airports where safety cannot be comprised when an aircraft lands or takes off. But are also widely used at chemical plants to help detect how quickly and what direction hazardous gases leaks will travel.
