The longest wearing flag/sock made. Gem Bright color for high visibility!
Gem Bright™ colors provide for immediate attention and excellent visibility. Internationally recognized color crosses all language barriers providing uniform notification to employees and personnel regardless of national origin. For the same reason police, fire departments, and industry use distinct colors to warn persons, the colors in our design are immediately visible and instantly recognized. The 3 to 1 ratio of length to width and special material used to construct the flag allows the wind to travel along the upper and lower surface animating the wind. For the first time you can actually "see" the wind movement, direction, and speed. It only takes a few seconds to change out your old windsock for this flag system. No hoops or metal brackets to adjust or fit to the flag.

harness-120gif.gif  The pivotal harness & flag come assembled. As air currents move along the flag it rises & falls with side-to-side movement as the wind changes directions. When the flag attempts to "dive off", it is pulled back into the winds force by the harness cords. This patented harness and its ability to keep the flag in position allows it to animate the wind at any speed, and at all times.
 wdws-drawtop-120.gif The patented pivotal harness rotates without the aid of ball bearings or other devices The Glide Plate rotates 360 degrees within the Glide Collar by wind force alone. This is important because there is no added friction to artificially slow down or force to create a spin effect.
 wdws-tilt-.gif Vertical flag movement from side view. The flag lifts the Glide Plate from the surface of the collar and rotates with a minimal amount of surface contact. There are no mechanical parts to jam or wear out.
 wdws-drawside120.gif The harness cords allow the side-to-side tilting motion of the flag which not only detects wind shear and variability of direction, but also creates an animation, and visual recognition of wind variability at a glance.

HOW THE WIND TRACKER WIND SYSTEM WORKS:
 
The Wind Tracker Wind System flags are designed to work in partnership with our patented pivotal harness system. The flag is 2x8' feet, fully dyed, and reinforced at the fly end with two rows of stitching. The no fray side hem allows graceful movement, which animates the wind. The dynamic design & international colors representing caution are understandable to all persons. As air currents move along the flag it rises & falls with side-to-side movement as the wind changes directions. When the flag attempts to "dive off", it is pulled back into the winds force by the harness cords. This patented harness and its ability to keep the flag in position allows it to animate the wind at any speed, and at all times.

The patented pivotal harness rotates without the aid of ball bearings or other devices The Glide Plate rotates 360 degrees within the Glide Collar by wind force alone. This is important because there is no added friction to artificially slow down or force to create a spin effect. The flag lifts the Glide Plate from the surface of the collar and rotates with a minimal amount of surface contact. There are no mechanical parts to jam or wear out.

The harness cords allow the side-to-side tilting motion of the flag which not only detects wind shear and variability of direction, but also creates an animation, and visual recognition of wind variability at a glance.

ORDINARY WINDSOCKS OBSOLETE:

The windsock design, or use, is not notably recorded prior to the late 1800's. It appears the sock was adapted from the "Wind-Sail" a wide tube or funnel of canvas used to convey a stream of air into the lower compartments of a ship (Noah Webster Dictionary 1828). The windsocks final fundamental use and design was later developed for use with small aircraft.

Ordinary windsocks cannot accurately indicate wind direction & speed because a volume of air in combination with sufficient wind speed must be realized before the open ended tube is filled and lifted. At that point, the air volume, and wind force in the tube is in direct conflict with any wind directional changes and acting against the sides of the tube. This deficiency in design limits its accuracy and ability to immediately respond to directional changes in the wind at lower speeds. This makes the ordinary airport windsock unsuitable for detection of low wind movement of hazardous airborne materials.

  1. Best windsock ever

    Posted by Dustin on 13th Dec 2016

    These are the best windsocks we have ever had.
    Living in a lower wind area.


  2. Good For Low Wind Situations

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Apr 2015

    We are using this in a sour field (H2S) and it is crucial part of keeping our folks safe when there are low wind conditions. They work very well and provide the wind direction information we need in those situations.


  3. Great product except fades too quickly

    Posted by Mike on 13th Feb 2015

    I love everything about the Wind Tracker Windsock set except the reason I am ordering the Replacement windsock. The original went from a bright orange to a white/gray in 6 months. It was still in great shape, not torn only faded.


  4. Great Product

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Feb 2015

    Highly recommend


  5. Third time is a charm?

    Posted by Wes on 6th Feb 2015

    The replacement wind flag that I just ordered is my third flag. I replaced the first one after a couple of years because it had completely faded to a dull gray. I replaced the second one after a couple of years because it had turned into two strips. We has a number of bad wind storms this year and the flag had torn all the way from top to bottom in the center and then all the way to the side seams at the top. So, it was just two strips.

    The pole and top, rotating assemble have held up very well. There may have been a cause for the flag tearing up. My hangar neighbor tool the pole and flag down to repair his hangar and lost the rod that sticks out over the flag to prevent it from doing a back flip and wrapping around the pole. But, I had never installed that rod on the first flag and it didn't tear. So, who knows. I was surprised that the replacement flag did not come with backflip preventing rod like the second replacement did.

    I plan to buy another replacement in a couple of years. My hangar is close, down wind from tall trees that spin off a lot of rotors so I use the flag mostly to tell how active the rotors are.
