Windsocks & Frames

Windsocks

Panama Enterprises manufactures each windsock individually and with specific attention to detail. We take pride in durable features such as superior fabrics, double seams for long life, grommets and hog rings as attachments to provide positive grounding, and consistent sizing to ensure replacement windsocks will always fit your existing frame. We offer fluorescent orange, florescent yellow, bright green and Canada red in polyester.

There is an industry misconception that cotton is the only acceptable fabric in hazardous applications to prevent static build-up, when in fact any fabric could spark when in motion. We solve this by providing the most sun and weather resistant fabric (polyester) and pair it with our grounded metal frames. Only this combination when installed on your existing grounded pole or building will ensure a positively grounded safety device to reduce or eliminate static and sparking.

Each windsock is designed in the proper truncated (cone) shape as indicated by Transport Canada – the diameter being 1/3 the length of the windsock.

Windsock colours are a personal choice, as previous colour requirements for specific applications have not been in effect in Alberta for over 10 years. For companies that choose to continue to follow these former colour requirements, we offer all the colour choices in all of our sock sizes corresponding to our frame diameters.

Custom designs are available upon request – minimum quantities apply.

Frames

Panama windsock frames are all metal to provide positive grounding through the bearings and the shaft. Nylon frames cannot offer this grounding capability. When our frames are mounted to an existing grounded pole or building, static and sparking are eliminated at hazardous sites.

All Panama frames 8 inches in diameter or larger are made with enclosed metal bearings to withstand severe weather conditions and provide smooth 360° rotation in both directions. Any amount of breeze or wind will provide indication of airflow direction and velocity, potentially saving human life in the event of an emergency.

Custom extensions and mounts can be supplied in most cases. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Note: Some sizes over 18-inch diameter are considered stock sizes, but may not be available for immediate shipping. These low stock or no stock sizes can be assembled and shipped within 2-3 days in any colour choice.

Please contact us for availability and requirements on larger diameter windsocks.
