HVLS Fans - February 2019

HVLS fans featured in Metal Architecture's February 2019 issue.

Go Fan Yourself’s Z-Tech3 HVLS fan features a 20-degree blade pitch to maximize air flow. Its symmetrical blade design allows for reversibility to mix air without creating a wind chill, reducing heating requirements. Z-Tech3’s pitched-hub design does not cause an air-flow dead zone directly beneath it. Its ABB controller allows open platform communication for implementation with building management systems.

Big Ass Fan’s Haiku HVLS fan features built-in LEDs with 16 brightness settings. A motion sensor turns the fan on and off as occupants enter and exit its space. Automatic speed adjustments and other features are available with a wall control. The Energy Star-rated fan is available in aluminum or bamboo. The Haiku HVLS fan is designed for residential and commercial interiors, and for covered outdoor spaces.

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.

Rite-Hite offers Revolution 75 Series and Revolution 25 Series direct drive, HVLS fans. Revolution 75 Series is available in 8- to 24-foot diameters and can be used in large, industrial spaces. The Revolution 25 Series is available in 6- to 12-foot diameters and incorporates a sleek blade design that works well for commercial and retail applications. The direct drive fans come standard with the Fan-Commander 2.0 Touchscreen Control, a wireless station with customizable scheduling for as many as 24 fans.
