Does anyone know the size (relative to the wing) or have a schematic draw of these wingtip fences?

enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ I wasn't sure what you meant by "A320-380" so I simplified the question to just the A320. If I got it wrong, please feel free to edit again to make it clear which model(s) you're interested in. $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Jan 3 '19 at 4:05
  • $\begingroup$ Did you find the dimensions of the wingtip fences as I am looking for them too! $\endgroup$ – user44662 Oct 22 '19 at 12:47

Dimensional information can be found on Airbus's Airport and Maintenance Planning Documents for the entire product range.

You will have to do a little digging and calculation to find the sizes of the wingtip devices but they are there.

Specifically, on the A320, subject 2-3-0 lists the height of both of the bottom and top of the wingtip fences relative to the ground, and 2-2-0 provides dimensions from the top.

  • $\begingroup$ Sharklet height is 2.43 meters according to the source above FIGURE-2-2-0-991-004-A01 and FIGURE-2-3-0-991-004-A01 lists the wing tip fence lower tip above ground as W2 = 3.78 and upper tip as W1 = 4.76 - so 0.98 meters.... Not very accurate through $\endgroup$ – Jan Oct 22 '19 at 17:34
