Don’t Take Our Word For It, See What Our Customers Are Saying!
The best wind indicator there is, nothing comes close to this wind flag, I will always get this product from now on .
Good For Low Wind Situations
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.
Great product – exactly what we needed
Was unsure of product size or how we would like the flag vs. sock version. But this is exactly what we needed, we can see it from all points of the property.
Storm Tough® Long Wearing & Strong
The longest wearing windsock in its class. The Wind Tracker™ Windsock uses the patented Gore Tenara® thread. Super Strong Construction.
Four rows, “Lock Stitch” construction insures long wearing windsock, and fade resistant colors standard.

Why Old Airport Windsocks Fail
Ordinary airport windsocks are not reliable in most field applications except for small aircraft landings. Ordinary windsocks cannot accurately indicate wind direction & speed.
A volume of air in combination with sufficient wind speed must be realized before the open ended tube construction of airport windsocks are filled and lifted.
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.
Low Wind Enemy – High Wind Friend
Inclusion of low wind speed conditions into risk assessments. Although they are not often considered in risk assessments or safety cases, Low wind speed conditions are likely to produce many of the worst case dispersion scenarios, especially for situations where dense vapor clouds would form close to the ground.
When the wind speed is above 8 to 10 miles per hour it disperses materials into a larger volume of air. When the wind speed is lower then 10 miles per hour it “carries along” the hazardous materials, posing a dangerous threat to persons, and property.
Did You Know…
Airport windsocks have been erroneously used for determining the drift of chemicals, dust, smoke, and other airborne contaminates. The antiquated open end design makes it necessary for large volumes of air to enter and exit the sock. At low wind speeds the old style airport windsock hangs limp unable to demonstrate the direction or speed of the wind.
What Is Chemical Trespass
A critical component to any safety plan is considering “chemical trespass”. The airborne materials may originate at your location but can soon travel onto other properties.
Production delivery, and storage systems are complex in their methods of operation and locations. The Wind Tracker Windsock System is a key safety tool for event management practices.
