Vertical Wind Tube

Regular price $19,200.00
/

Generate a column of wind at the push of a button and explore how objects move and respond once introduced to this phenomenon. Lightweight items like scarves and paper constructs react to the wind tunnel’s laminar airflow in exciting and unexpected ways. Get hands on by modifying objects’ shape and size to conduct experiments in air resistance. This laminar airflow is the same kind used in wind tunnels to test the aerodynamic designs of cars or even the space shuttle.

Materials

White High Density Polyethylene

High density polyethylene is a durable polymer and a preferred choice for many commercial applications due to its superior flatness and durability.  This environmentally stabilized material is scratch resistant, waterproof, and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth of sponge. 


Baltic Birch Ply with Polymer Veneer

Made entirely of birch hardwood layers, this furniture-grade plywood offers exceptional strength and stability.  In order to offer even more protection against abuse, the top is finished with a Kydex veneer. This combination makes for an extremely durable counter finish that is easy to clean and has been specifically designed for high traffic environments.


Painted Steel 

The steel base is finished with acrylic polyurethane paint in the color of your choice. This two-component catalyzed coating system provides unsurpassed color retention, wear protection, and durability.
