How It Works
The arrow and figure revolve on a ball bearing over a stainless Steel Shaft.
These Weathervane are powder-coated. Just like Henry Ford said, you can have any colour so long as it is black.
A Stainless Steel mounting plate is available for fixing to the ridge line of a metal roof or a wooden garden post. Alternatively there is a Stainless Steel gable bracket available (see Fixing Brackets). If you would like to order a fixing bracket to suit this product, please select from the product options above. Fixing brackets ordered with an Aussie Weathervane will not incur any additional delivery charges.
Which one to use ?
The bracket used to attach weathervane to the Gable is called a Gable Bracket. Suitable to attach weathervanes to Tile and Metal Roofs. The Gable shaft is 500mm long. The ridge bracket shaft is only 300mm long. The reason for this is that it comes down the face of the gable. . The Mounting Plate is laser cut to match the pitch of the roof. This Ridge Bracket is also used for attaching weathervanes to flat surfaces and for mounting on posts.
Purchasing the suitable bracket makes installation easy and enjoyable.
