Our Frangible Airport Windsock Pole is made from frangible fibreglass which will disintegrate on impact, thereby causing minimum damage if struck by an aircraft.
The fibreglass is reinforced with polyester resin to a white & red striped weather-resistant finish and is tapered from 115m to 75mm. The tapered design is more attractive than a tubular design and gives the pole more strength.
As with all our poles, this pole features a hinged reinforced steel baseplate allowing it to be tilted down to the ground for easy windsock replacement.
The top of the pole includes a robust swivel arm which allows the windsock freedom of movement to respond to the prevailing wind conditions.
The pole is secured to the ground via a concrete foundation (concrete not supplied) and must therefore be installed by a qualified contractor or builder. Three foundation bolts (supplied) fully secure the pole to the concrete base. The depth of the concrete base is dependent on pole height (see below table).
When selecting your pole requirements, please specify the required pole Height. If you also require a Windsock, select one here and you will save 50% on our usual price.
We can supply non-illuminated or illuminated poles. Illuminated poles are a requirement for runways operating during darkness. Our illuminated windsock pole is mains powered, but we are also able to quote for battery and solar powered systems on request.
