Outdoor activities of all kinds are made safer and more pleasurable by preparedness for the elements. This Heat Index & Windchill Gauge assists outdoor adventurers of all sorts by reporting not only an actual, but also a "feels like" temperature.
An area shaded by yellows, reds and oranges at the top of the instrument dial demonstrates Heat Index, a phenomenon which occurs when high temperatures and humidity combine to make the outdoor air feel hotter than it really is.
Meanwhile, a blue shaded region at the bottom of the dial displays Windchill, which presents when cooler temperatures and a significant breeze cause it to seem colder than it really is.
The Veranda Collection Heat Index & Windchill Gauge is constructed of solid brass and crystal clear glass designed to withstand a lifetime of outdoor use.
Two mounting options are included:
- A swivel arm facilitates mounting so that the Heat Index & Windchill Gauge peeks into any window in your home
- A shorter S-bracket allows for invisible mounting on a flat surface such as a wall, tree or post.
The Veranda Collection Heat Index & Windchill Gauge solid, uncoated brass and hardware will never peel, flake or rust and will age beautifully into a rich patina and eventually a lovely verdigris. It contains a proven movement, is easily disassembled for necessary adjustments and comes with a Lifetime Guarantee from Conant Custom Brass.
