Pavement or Footpath Spinning Signs

"... unique, outdoor, wind-driven spinning signs...."
The Footpath Windvane is a unique, high quality outdoor spinning sign which is designed to start spinning as the wind blows.
This spinning motion cuts through existing advertising clutter and gets your product noticed while the soft round corners and high gloss
injection-moulded components promote your brand due to it's upmarket and attractive appearance.
This spinning footpath sign is designed to start spinning as the wind blows and through it's movement is able to attract attention even in high
traffic areas like pavements, walkways and forecourts. This sign is the perfect choice for any business, event or company wanting to promote
itself.
Launched in 1994 the internationally patented rotating sign has been developed and consistently improved upon to provide high quality,
longevity and value. With over 50 000 units sold into Europe, Africa, Australia, USA and Asia our spinning sign is recognized as a global leader in
outdoor advertising.

Why spinning signs are superior to other signs:
Spinning signs provide greatly improved visibility - as they spin, they catch people's
attention.
Good durability - made to last
Spinning signs increase sales - more exposure converts to higher turnover
Spinning signs enhance your branding
Spinning signs are cost effective - they provide years of advertising at minimal outlay
The Windvane Design
Aerodynamically designed to rotate at exceptionally low wind speeds and maintain low
revolutions at high wind speeds.
Manufactured to European quality standards.
All corners are radiused to provide an aesthetically pleasing product and to avoid injury or
damage to property.
The rotating section is of composite construction with injection moulded ABS trim. This provides
an exceptionally strong, light product, which has an extended lifespan and is rust free. All
brackets are manufactured from steel which is powder-coated for rust protection and protection
against harmful UV rays.
 
The design of the spinning sign..

This spinning sign is aerodynamically designed to start rotating at exceptionally low wind speeds, and maintain low revolutions even at high wind
speeds.

More importantly to ensure pedestrian, property and motor vehicle safety, all corners have large radiuses and the rotating section is of a low
mass. The Windvane is manufactured to European standards, and is an attractive high quality, aesthetically pleasing spinning sign.

The spinning section is of composite construction with injection moulded ABS trim. This provides an exceptionally strong, light product, which has
an extended lifespan and is rust free. The base is moulded in a virtually indestructible UV inhibited roto cast plastic and is colour coded to the
colour of your choice. For extra stability the base is filled with water or sand once on site. This design philosophy reduces the overall mass of the
unit and saves on transportation and handling. The design also allows for the base to be separated from the spinning section during shipping, thus
reducing costs. A colour coded base adds to the overall visibility and impact of the sign and assists in creating attention and maintaining a
presence for your company.

     The spinning sign was designed in a wind tunnel to achieve low start up speeds,
     with accompanying low maximum speeds. Wind tunnel tested in excess of 6oKph.

     Designed to endure environmental conditions in both Northern and Southern
     hemispheres, the spinning sign can withstand temperature ranges of
     -25 to +40 degrees Celcius.
     All colour coded components and printable substrates are UV inhibited and all
     steelware is electroplated to ensure an extended lifespan.

The spinning section can easily be removed from the base if so required. Store owners like to do this after trading hours or during severe weather conditions.
The bearings are factory lubricated and do not require any maintenance. All replacement parts are available ex-stock.

What makes the Warp Five spinning sign the world leader in wind powered rotating signs?

1.  Aerodynamics:  a scientific, tested and proven approach to provide our spinning sign with the very best start up speed and lowest maximum
speed.

2.  Design:  Soft rounded corners and high gloss injection moulded components make for an exceptionally finished
and up market spinning sign.

3.  Colour choice:  The base and trim of our spinning signs can be colour coded to your exact specification, ensuring
that your corporate colours get maximum exposure for increased impact.

4.  Safety:  By reducing the maximum rotation speed aerodynamically the spinning sign is less inclined to “walk” during very high wind speeds. The
rotating section of the spinning sign has a composite construction and is therefore incredibly strong but also very light. This reduces the potential
for damage to pedestrians and property in adverse conditions, it also enables the rotating section to be removed if required. The corners have
been designed to have large radiuses that are pedestrian friendly in the unlikely event of a collision.

5.  Distribution:  The Warp Five rotating sign is supplied with a base that can be filled with either water or sand at the point of use which reduces
its mass during transportation. The spinning section is of composite construction and is also very light. The spinning section is supplied separate to
the base, which allows for very compact and economic packaging. This reduces the overall cost of transportation, storage and distribution of the
spinning signs.

6.  Longevity:  Launched in 1994 our spinning sign has been continually developed and improved to provide exceptional longevity. All of the
materials used in the construction of the rotating sign are UV inhibited and rust proofed to provide years of service.

7.  Cost:  Economically priced for both the corporate buyer and individual sign maker.

Vinyl Application Guide:

Step 1
Blank Windvane's are supplied assembled with colour coded side strips and top and
bottom capping strips.

Start by disassembling the windvane by removing the screws which hold the trim in
place.  (6 screws for the PWV1250, or 4 screws for the PWV1000)


 
Step 2
Apply your vinyl to the blank windvane. It is a good idea to use a larger piece of
vinyl than the size of the windvane which will allow you to position the vinyl more
easily and then trim off the excess.

Note:  The overall size of the graphic is as follows:

PWV1250:  1000mm x 540mm
PWV1000:  750mm x 540mm

The "safe area" for graphics is:

PWV1250:  980mm x 500mm
PWV1000:  730mm x 500mm

 
Step 3
Re-attach the side strips and capping strips by placing them back in place and
fixing with the screws provided.










 
Congratulations!
You have sucessfully applied artwork to your new Windvane!
