Internally lit WDI for jet blasts

Pollite Blog Internally lit WDI for jet blasts

Pollite supplied an Internally Lit Windsock Mast to Blast Deflectors Inc’s testing facility in Cambridge in the UK.  

BDI designs, manufactures and installs Jet Bast Deflectors (JBDs) Ground Run-up Enclosures (GREs), and End Around Taxiway (EAT) Visual Screens. The WDI was to be used as a visual wind director indicator to complement their digital WDI. 

The 2.5 metre tall frangible ICAO and FAA approved glassfibre mast was coloured red and white and supplied without a ground plate so it could be attached to the top of an aircraft hanger. Lighting of the handmade orange polyester windsock was provided in the form of an internal LED.
