OSHA Color Coding for Commercial Windsocks
The Colors of Safety
Wind Tracker™ Windsocks
Visibility up to 1/4 mile away!
Color coding is a visual reminder system to warn, inform and guide. OSHA assigns specific meanings to certain colors; therefore, colors can be a warning of a particular hazard or give information or directions.
The highest visibility during our field trials was the Yellow & Black combination. Because of the color spectrum and the dye process it also proves to have about 15% to 20% better color retention.
The Orange & White colors used in our Wind Tracer Windsocks is excellent for air traffic, and warning. It is ideal for heliports, and small airport windsocks.

In addition to the visibility in flight, the Wind Tracker has the ability to animate the wind, showing shears and erratic air movement from various directions. This is accomplished by the six directional movement of the patented pivotal harness system.
The Wind Tracker Windsock System is now used world wide in hundreds of applications. There are no metal parts to rust, no hoops to wear out, and will not tangle or wrap on the pole. Comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
The Wind Tracker is ideal for use in emergency evacuation plans, and work site safety. It is reliable for field use in the detection of low wind movement. Installs at ground level, atop structures, on existing windsock poles, and is ideal for portable windsock deployment. Wind Tracker Windsock System is now preferred by major Businesses, Military, Coast Guard, EPA, FEMA, Municipalities, Nuclear Power Plants, Heliports, Hospitals, First Responders, Cities, and Countries throughout the world.
Wind Tracker’s patented action allows for six directional movement. It can even demonstrate wind shears to the observer. This is a great benefit to helicopter pilots. The Wind Tracker Windsock System is now used worldwide in hundreds of applications.
There are no metal parts to rust, no hoops to wear out, and will not tangle or wrap on the pole.
