Everything in the wind: all kinds of weather vanes
The weather vane is a nostalgic tool that has traditionally been placed on top of church towers. Often this had the shape of a rooster, which is why he is also called 'wind cock' by many. Wind pointers are nowadays in all shapes and sizes. For example, playful variants are available in the form of an animal, a car or a witch.
In addition to the decorative value of the wind vane, this is naturally also very functional. People who buy a weather vane can see at a glance from which direction the wind comes. To do a good measurement, however, the weather vane must be placed in a wind-rich location.
The placement of your weather vane
Wind pointers are not placed on churches for nothing, because they catch a lot of wind there. This is an important factor that you also have to take into account when confirming a wind vane. It is therefore recommended to attach weather vanes to the ridge of a roof. You can think of your house, a barn or another high building. At these locations the wind often blows unaffected, which means that the actual wind direction can be easily and accurately determined. Customers who buy a weather vane can therefore, before ordering, think carefully about the placement of this beautiful garden accessory.
