With over 50 years experience in the design, manufacture and delivery of P. Wedge internally lighted wind cones, the Solar Series Permanent LED Wind Cone is the most proven and most installed off-grid solution on the market. Operating on all continents in the most demanding environments, the industry’s toughest clients rely on the Solar Series LED Wind Cones for civil and defense operations. Backed by the best warranty in the industry, our wind cones provide both standard and custom designed solar LED wind cone solutions for airports, runways, and helipads. The Solar Series LED Wind Cone is available in various sizes, all of which include an intelligently engineered aluminum tilt-pole with a patented aluminum swivel system that is designed to facilitate easy installation and servicing by a single person with no electrical infrastructure requirements.
Internally lighted windsocks are more visible for pilots than externally lighted. The Solar Series windsock is made with a durable but lightweight colorfast fabric.
Being 100% solar powered and self-contained, installation is dramatically less expensive compared to detached solar systems or conventional systems, thereby eliminating the need for trenching, cabling or electrical services. No power requirements means no reliance on grid or generator power.
Solar powered means no external power and zero energy costs. Internal LED lighting is up to 10 times more energy efficient than external incandescent windsock lighting.
