We offer a variety of different fixings to suit a number of different situations. In order to establish which weathervane fixing is best for your building, please read through the below options. If you choose the wrong fixing and need to swap at a later date, we are happy to do so as long as it can be returned in the same condition it was sent out in. If you are ordering a weathervane as a gift and do not know which fixing the recipient will require, it's not a problem to order the weathervane and have the chosen fixing sent out at a later date.
Gable End Bracket
This heavy duty bracket is only available with Medium and Large weathervanes. It is designed for attaching the weathervane to the gable end wall of a property, with the weathervane sitting proud of the ridge. The horizontal arm of the bracket extends by 16cm (6 1/2") as standard, but we can alter this to suit your requirements usually at no extra cost. The pole provided is 18" long, but as with the bracket itself, we can alter this measurement depending on individual specification.This fixing is the most popular and easiest to fit.
This fixing is suitable where a property has a hipped roof as shown in the image below, or where the Gable end walls are not prominent allowing the weathervane to be seen. The fitting is designed to be bolted over a standard 2” x 6" ridge board, however should your ridge board vary from this please advise us in your order and we will be happy to make a bracket to fit. The pole (welded to the main fixing) is 18" long, though again we can vary this to suit your requirements. This fixing needs to be fitted between two ridge tiles. As the job involves removing and re fitting tiles, we'd recommend you use a professional roofer, unless you are an experienced DIY-er who is confident in working at height.
