Airport windsocks are now obsolete:

Ordinary airport windsocks cannot detect wind speed and direction below 8 miles per hour. While they may still be used to land small aircraft they are not reliable, and should not be used for evacuations.

The open-ended design of the ordinary sock has a large opening at one end and a smaller opening at the other end. When a sufficient amount of air is realized the sock will lift and or fill up. The air is not only rushing into the sock but it is also rushing out the other end. It it fills up at 20 miles per hour it will be fully displayed at 45 miles per hour. The poor design of the typical airport windsock prevents it from being able to demonstrate accurately  wind movements below 10 miles per hour.

The basic construction of an ordinary windsock only allows the wind to move into the one opening at the hoop side of the sock. Wind coming from a direction other than the hoop opening cannot enter the sock until it turns into the correct position.

How to choose the best location for your windsock:

Proper windsock placement is critical. Accuracy of wind direction and speed in the primary consideration when selecting an area to position your windsocks. Most windsocks are installed where they can be seen by everyone. This usually requires the windsock to be positioned high above buildings and other structures. We call this the  “everybody can see it location”. In most cases you do not want to do this. Evacuation lanes, and their routes must be taken into consideration. Improper placement could lead to an unsafe evacuation of personnel to a safe assembly area.

The wind speed atop buildings is often unobstructed and moves at higher speed than close to the surface. Place your windsock in the lanes of evacuation leading to the designated safe areas. Watch the video and you will see what happens to wind movement in around structures where personnel are working. You may have to use more then one windsock depending on the area, structures, and or distance to the safe area. Wind speed and direction is not always the same in every locations.

In some cases placing another Wind Tracker Windsock atop a structure would be advisable  for inbound assistance (approaching fire equipment, ambulance, etc.) to the facility.

Why is wind direction, force, and speed important to me:

Wind direction and wind action at lower elevations can vary dramatically. Structures, landscaping, temporary impediments like parked cars, type of area paving, elevation, climate, and other conditions can affect the wind direction, speed, and movement. Along with this, many airborne agents are heavier than air or are prevented from rising due to weather conditions such as fog, which keeps them close to the ground. See our video below.

Detecting air movement at low speeds is critical for site safety:

The Wind Tracker™ Windsock System is the only windsock that can detect wind direction and speed below 8 miles per hour. Ordinary airport windsocks and aviation wind direction socks have become obsolete when used for purposes of drift of harmful airborne materials.

Storm Tough and Durable:

We are the only windsock manufacturer using the patented Gore Tenera®. All seams are “Lock Guard Stitched” double row. The fly end of the Wind Tracker™ is reinforced with four rows of stitching. The unique design & OSHA compliant safety colors are recognizable to all persons.

Dynamic design & international safety colors enhance visibility

We have offer several color combinations that are more recognizable by all persons and visible from a greater distance. They are constructed of outdoor 200 denier nylon and fully dyed. Choose from  Alert Orange™, Safety Black™ or one of our other colors. Custom printing is available upon request.

Importance of windsock multi-directional movement:

The Wind Tracker Windsock System  uses our  patented pivotal harness and directional vane which  allows the animation of the wind by using only the wind. For the first time you can “see” the wind. Air moves “against” the fabric not through it, and therefore the Wind Tracker™ will move in a direction relative to the force and direction of that wind.

Why is low wind your enemy:

High winds will disperse airborne materials, and low wind will “move them along”. Low winds are in most cases closer to the ground and in and around structures.

Conclusion:

Evacuation and Emergency Action Plans (EAP) incorporate Wind Tracker™ Windsock System for field safety and accuracy.

Windsocks can be an invaluable aid in moving persons from an area of danger to an area or safety, especially when hazardous materials are involved. The Windsock System is specially designed for use in emergency evacuation plans, and work site safety. It is reliable for field use in the detection of low wind speed.

The “way” from the path of danger to the place of safety may not be clear, especially when odorless and or colorless gases are present. The wind can be a friend or a foe depending on which direction it takes, and the safety lanes used during evacuation. It is absolutely critical that all persons be able be “see” the wind direction. The wind detection device should be as accurate as possible. Placing a windsock on top of a building may give you an unobstructed view but it will not give you a reliable reading of the wind direction and speed at ground level. A good placement would include both higher and lower elevations. The elevated Wind Tracker can be used to get a general idea of the wind direction, and aid incoming response units.

Wind Tracker Windsocks placed at ground level will indicate the path of the wind in the evacuation lanes. Be sure to position them so they are not blocked by buildings, large trucks, or other obstacles. Distance and location are two critical aspects of the evacuation plan. You will have to take into account the area of the incident, and the areas where persons are and may be.

One other factor to consider is your neighbors “right to know”. If there is a reasonable possibility of an incident, and your neighbor is within the area where they may be affected you should take additional precautions.

Installs at ground level, atop structures, on existing windsock poles, and is ideal for portable windsock deployment. Wind Tracker™ Windsock System is now preferred by major Businesses, Military, Coast Guard, EPA, FEMA, Municipalities, Nuclear Power Plants, Heliports, Hospitals, First Responders, Cities, and Countries throughout the world.

Wind Tracker’s patented action allows for six directional movement. It can even demonstrate wind shears to the observer. This is a great benefit to helicopter pilots. The Windsock System is now used worldwide in hundreds of applications.

There are no metal parts to rust, no hoops to wear out, and will not tangle or wrap on the pole. Comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
