Weathervanes

 

 

A wide selection of aviation weathervanes.  Manufactured in Steel and powder coated for a longer life.

Every weathervane is individually made to order.  It will usually take 2-3 weeks before despatch for black weathervanes, or 4-5 weeks for a coloured weathervane. If the motif is not in stock, please add a minimum extra 2 weeks.

They are available in three sizes:

PETITE: Measuring 16" across the cardinal points, this size is suitable for sheds, greenhouses Pergolas, conservatories or small garages and outbuildings. These are finished in a durable black powder coating. Petite weathervanes have a single ended scroll.

 

MEDIUM: Measuring 21.5" across the cardinal points and suitable for use on garages, stables, bungalows and other single storey buildings. 

 

LARGE: Measuring 27.5" across the cardinal points and suitable for use on large barns and other two storey buildings.

Deluxe Finish - all sizes: The weathervane is plated with a layer of zinc to BS1706 and then passivated for extra protection. It then has a zinc rich epoxy powder coat and a final black polyester powder coat. We believe this is the best finish available anywhere today.
