At Windsocks Direct we have decades of experience designing aviation windsocks and accessories, and this airport pole is one of our bestsellers. The 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 gives the pole more strength, while the striped design is popular in many aviation settings as it can be seen from afar and up above.
As with all pole masts in the Windsocks Direct range, this product is supplied with a robust swivel arm, to attach the windsock to, and a hinged steel baseplate to attach the pole to the ground. Both components make installing the pole and windsock as simple as possible, and ensure the windsock is effective and hardwearing against strong wind conditions.
There is also the option to order this windsock pole with illumination. 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. Just let us know when ordering if you require an illuminated or non-illuminated airport pole.
Installing your Pole
As the tall pole mast needs to be secured to the ground, it must be installed by a professional builder or qualified contractor. The pole is fixed to the ground with a concrete foundation base and three foundation bolts. We recommend a concrete density of C35 for normal to heavy wind conditions. The bolts are supplied as standard but customers need to supply their own concrete foundation – the recommended depth for each pole height is listed below.
