Decorative Lightning Rods, Weathervanes and Glass Balls
Weathervanes add a unique and personal decorative touch to your roof.
You can either purchase the parts separately or as a package which include a base, lightning rod, directional arrow, compass set, glass ball and the ornament of your choice. All weathervane packages come with a base to mount the weathervane to your roof and a lightning conductor attachment to attach it to your lightning protection system or it can be used as a standalone decoration.
The oldest known weathervane was built by astronomer Andronicus of Cyrrhus in 48 BC on the Tower of the Winds in Athens, Greece. Wind direction change means change of weather – a useful tool!
We offer a wide variety of weathervanes. Most of them can be painted per your specs (at an additional cost). Below are just a few examples of the options we have available. Please do not hesitate to contact our sales department for additional styles, pricing or questions.
