Upon receiving your quotation request we determine the exact requirements of the project. There are a wide range of requirements such as operating temperatures, height, frame size, materials, hazardous area requirements etc
Once we have determine the full requirements of the project we can then provide an accurate quotation. This process is iterative as we make recommendations to our clients if we feel there is a better solution available than the one proposed in the original specification.
Once our quotation has been accepted and a plan of action is agreed we proceed to the design phase. This can be a relatively short period if the project requires standard units to fulfill requirements. For example, a chemical or oil & gas site will require standard mast and windsock sizes depending on the site location and visibility. However a offshore rig may require specialized mounting and windsock sizes to be compliant with its particular environmental challenges.
Once the design phase is complete the units then proceed immediately to manufacturing. The windsocks themselves are manufactured in our custom facility using automated CAD cutting machinery and industrial sewing machine. We have been sailmakers for over 40 years to we know what is needed to withstand the harshest environments on the planet. All metalwork is manufactured under strict quality control by highly skilled precision engineers. They follow detailed drawings and specification produced in the design phase. Bearings and moving parts are all checked and tested. Items are bulk galvanized if required.
When all items are manufactured and quality tested they are disassembled where necessary and stacked for shipment. We have been shipping windsock equipment worldwide for over 30 years using our trusted freight forwarders to ensure all items arrive safely and on time.
Once arrived on site we strongly encourage our customers to inspect all materials for requirement compliance. Once approved installation is very straight forward. All are units are designed to be fitted and maintained using minimal staff and equipment. Once fitted their reliability becomes evident - requiring little to no maintenance except the occasional replacement of a worn windsock.
We have been using McWilliam Windsocks since we first laid down our Airstrip 19 years ago, and in December '13 purchased our 3rd Sock leaving an average of over 9 years per sock in Irish Conditions. By no means have they been the cheapest available - But their longevity in terms of lifespan has certainly proven their quality & value in the long run. Its been a no brainer for us.
We at Monaghan Mushrooms began using McWilliam Windsocks in 2008. Since then, we have never felt the need to look elsewhere. Their windsocks are very easy to erect, highly visible and extremely strong and durable; lasting up to 2 years on occasions. They certainly have a satisfied customer in us.
McWilliam Windsocks were extremely helpful and professional throughout the lengthy process of our project. From requirements analysis, through design and manufacturing, until delivery at site, we cannot praise the McWilliam Windsocks team highly enough.
