Weathervanes first became popular in America around the early 17th century. At this point, people wanted to use architecture and enhanced features to show off their homes, and weathervanes became a great way to do so. Back in the day, though, most weathervanes were basic. Today, though, there are a variety of weathervane options to choose from. No matter how many weathervanes you’ve seen, it’s unlikely that you’ve come across one like our Grey Copper Apex Weathervane.
The apex weathervane is based off one of the water’s most fierce competitors – the shark. Apex predators are animals that are at the top of the food chain, and sharks are surely the top predators in marine ecosystems. In addition to their stature, sharks symbolize power, superiority, and authority. They are willing to put themselves in harm’s way to protect themselves and be in charge. Who doesn’t want a shark protecting them and their property?
To represent such a strong predator, we needed a strong material. Copper is one of the most chemically composed metals in existence which makes it ideal for outdoor use. We construct our weathervanes with 22-gauge copper to ensure that your copper apex weathervane will last a lifetime. Because we know you might want a more realistic looking shark, we hand-finished this weathervane with grey patina. This way, instead of having a shiny copper shark on your property, it’ll blend into its surroundings more just like a real shark.
Wherever you place your shark weathervane, it will enhance the natural beauty of the architecture that it lays upon. Once it’s installed, you don’t want to worry about it not functioning properly. We understand this concern, so we developed Single Point Contact. This technology allows the rotating portion of the weathervane to remain functional due to the reduced amount of friction placed upon it. After all, what use is a weathervane if it doesn’t spin?
The Grey Copper Apex Weathervane will improve the appearance of your home in a subtle, yet strong way.
