Complies with the rules of the international aviation organization ICOA at all airports and heliports, in road traffic on bridges and roads with strong crosswinds, in offshore wind farms and in ports where the wind has a direct impact on safety, e.g. terminals of the petrochemical industry.
The windsock Fiete is made of weatherproof nylon fabric. It is pointed and a hose open at both ends, which is suspended from a mast in a rotating bearing.
The wind flows through its 50 cm aerodynamically shaped opening and inflates the windsock according to the wind force.
The small 25 cm opening at the end of the windsock always points downwind (the side facing away from the wind). Thus the windsock Fiete shows the wind direction and approximate wind force.
