How It Works
The arrow and figure revolve on a ball bearing over a stainless Steel Shaft. The weathervane is powder-coated and like the early Ford motor vehicles, you can have any colour so long as it is black. These Aussie Weathervanes are Australian Made.
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 ?
Which one ?
Gable Bracket (Stainless Steel) is used for attaching to the face of the Gable. Suitable for both Tile and Metal Roofs. Because the shaft extends down the face of the Gable, it is 200mm longer than the ridge line bracket.
Stainless Steel Mounting Plate (supplied flat with laser cut slots to allow plate to be bent to the exact pitch of the roof). Used on the roof ridge of metal roofs. Also adaptable to flat surfaces and mounting on posts.
