Big Ass Fan Co.

Big Ass Fan Co.

Big Ass Fan Powerfoil X3.0 HVLS fans for industrial spaces include SmartSense, a controller that automates fans based on seasonal conditions for optimal comfort and energy savings. SmartSense has three modes: summer, winter and manual. In summer mode, SmartSense speeds up the fan as temperatures rise, providing a greater cooling effect. In winter mode, SmartSense measures temperature differences between floors and ceilings and automatically mixes the air to keep ground-level temperatures warmer and reduce heater runtimes.

Go Fan Yourself Inc.

Go Fan Yourself Inc.

Go Fan Yourself's Z-Tech HVLS fans have pitched hubs with the same 20-degree-plus contour as the pitch of the blades. Because of the pitch, the dead zone that can be found directly under HVLS fans is eliminated and air movement is felt with uniformity. Z-Tech HVLS fans move air at 425,000 cubic feet per minute. They feature symmetrical blades that run in reverse rotation during winter months providing effective destratification without wind chill.

Rite-Hite Corp.

Rite-Hite Corp.

Rite-Hite's Rave HVLS fans have four blades and are available with 8-foot, 10-foot and 12-foot diameters. Their coverage area is 7,800 square feet and as fast as 4 mph. They circulate large volumes of air to 50 feet from center. Rave HVLS fans come standard with polished aluminum blades. The blades can be painted to match environments. Mounting heights range from 10 feet to 30 feet from the finished floor to the bottom of the fan blades. Rave HVLS fans direct air outward from the center in a conical shape, eliminating dead-air holes directly beneath the fans and in building corners. They feature rotationally balanced blade and hub connections with vibration-absorbing material that reduces stress to the hubs. Additionally, touchscreen control boxes operate as many as 18 fans.
