HVLS Fans - February 2018

HVLS fans featured in Metal Architecture's February 2018 issue.

Bigs Essence 1

Big Ass Fan’s Essence HVLS fan features a gearless, direct drive motor. It operates quietly and produces less than 35 A-weighted decibels (dBA). The Essence HVLS fan may be used inside or outside and comes in 8-foot to 14-foot diameters. Silver and black are standard; custom colors are also offered. Wired or wireless controls are available.

Go Fan Yourself Ztech 1

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.

Macroairs Airvolution Pic 2 High Res

MacroAir Technologies’ AirVolution-D Model 780 HVLS fans for extra-large industrial spaces have a 24-foot diameter and 22,000-square-foot coverage area. The fans feature a gearless direct drive that operates at 64 revolutions per minute and moves 346,000 cubic feet of air per minute. Additionally, MacroAir Technologies offers digital touchpad controllers for its HVLS fans.

Ritehite Revolution 1

Rite-Hite’s Revolution Fan directs air outward from the center in a conical shape, eliminating dead-air holes directly beneath it and in building corners. It has four, mill-finished, aluminum blades and is available in 8-foot, 12-foot, 16-foot, 20-foot and 24-foot diameters. Mounting heights range from 15 feet to 80 feet from finished floors to fan blade bottoms. It uses a steel, universal mounting bracket. The mounting system includes a beam clamp, motor housing and three-way, motor-to-hub safety connection.
