Background Info

History of Windvanes

One form of early wind measurement came from the glorious castle turrets of the medieval age. As you may recall from films and ancient tales, flags were often placed at the towers of great castles.
Though not intended to predict the weather the banners did assist archers in calculating the direction of the wind when defending the castle.

FAQ's

Cast Iron Weathervanes

The advantages of using cast iron versus laser cut steel

Cast iron as a material offers a far superior product ensuring your new windvane is long lasting and durable, it is not to be confused with laser cut steel alternatives. 

The classically cast designs are robust and beautifully detailed whereas the cut steel alternative will rust and deteriorate. 

 

How to position your weathervane:

It can be fitted in one of two ways depending on the needs of the fixing site. The standard bracket can be rotated to support the piece either vertically or horizontally.

Horizontal fitting is best used when fixing to the gable of the house. This is the most traditional location used for our designs, just below the roof line.

Should you be fitting to a flat roof or garage then fixing the bracket vertically to the roof would offer the best results.

We also offer an apex bracket at an additional cost for those wishing the fit their chosen piece to a roof top or ridge for even more drama. 

 

Colour Finishes

Our cast iron designs are powder coated in a choice of midnight black or rustic brown. In doing so not only is your rooftop ornament more durable but also beautifully finished.

Powder coating helps to protect the cast iron design of your choice from the elements ensuring the longevity of the piece. 

 

Rawl Bolts

Along with your standard bracket you will receive x4 rawl bolts, additional fittings will be provided for the apex design bracket.

The bolts are best fitted to the brickwork, masonry or concrete just below the roof line. You will need to the pre drill four fixing holes for the bolts, carefully cleaning away any debris left behind.
