The two most important characteristics of commercial ceiling fans and
industrial ceiling fans are HEAVY-DUTY CONSTRUCTION and PERFORMANCE
Industrial Ceiling Fans
are designed for spacious applications where maximum area coverage is
required. Industrial ceiling fans typically have a higher air delivery
and a heavier
duty motor than commercial grade ceiling fans. Perfect for both winter
heat de-stratification and summertime cooling. The powerful heavy duty
ceiling fans with curved blades allow for mounting heights up to 25 feet
(use the straight blade design for mounting heights below and beyond
Engineered for continuous use, the following industrial ceiling fans are
perfect for manufacturing facilities, warehouse and storage facilities,
and any application where maximum air flow is required. These industrial
ceiling fans are built to last! Reversible industrial ceiling fans are
for boosting air up to roof mounted exhaust fans, removing and
preventing condensation gathering on ceilings and other draft free
applications. The industrial ceiling fan buyer must be aware that all fans are not alike. A single model industrial ceiling fan cannot possibly satisfy all application and environment applications. We carry a variety of industrial ceiling fan sizes and blade styles to fit different mounting heights and performance requirements.
Commercial Ceiling Fans
Agricultural Ceiling Fans
are designed for applications such as classrooms, offices, retail
stores, restaurants, etc. Designed for continuous use, these heavy duty
ceiling fans provide maximum area coverage for both summer cooling and
winter heat de-stratification. Commercial ceiling fans are perfect for stirring stagnant air in the summer and creating wind velocity. Wind velocity for an evaporative cooling effect. Ideal for mounting heights between 10' to
25'. All of
the commercial ceiling fans we carry are variable speed. The variable
speed adjustment at lower mounting height such as 15 feet and below is
because it allows you to fine tune the air flow on your commercial
ceiling fans. All of the commercial ceiling fans shown on this page are
capable of 24
hour, 7 days a week operation. Don't be fooled by cheap imitations that
offer only limited speeds. These commercial ceiling fans are the real
are designed for agricultural applications such as horse and dairy
barns, poultry buildings, greenhouses and outdoor installations such as
ball parks and
covered porches. Designed for continuous use, these harsh environment
grade ceiling fans have sealed motors that prevent moisture and dust
the motor and epoxy coated blades and housings. They provide maximum
area coverage for both summer cooling and winter heat de-stratification.
When mounting an industrial ceiling fan or commercial ceiling fan, there are several factors to consider. Maintaining a minimum of 12" clearance from the ceiling fan blade to any obstacle helps prevent the fans from wobbling and ensures that the air to and from the fan is allowed to flow properly. Mounting an industrial ceiling fan too close to the ceiling, can negatively effect the performance of the fan. When mounting an industrial ceiling fan to a sloped ceiling, you will want to make sure there is proper clearance from the blade tip to the part of the ceiling sloping towards the fan. For Example: Mounting a 60" industrial ceiling fan which extends 18" from ceiling to blade with a 4:12 pitch will only give you a 10" clearance.
otherwise known as heat stratification is when industrial ceiling fans or commercial fans are used to recover trapped warm air at the ceiling. Air circulation is equalized through the use of the massive blade span of an industrial ceiling fan by pulling the lighter, trapped warm air at the ceiling and pushing it back down to the floor. Thus, ceiling to floor temperature is equalized resulting in a cost savings of up to 30 percent. Commercial ceiling fans and industrial ceiling fans can usually pay for themselves in one year from the cost savings.
Industrial ceiling fans, commercial ceiling fans and agricultural ceiling fans can be one of the most cost effective ways to provide ventilation in the summer time and heat equalization in the winter time. Because of the amount of cubic feet per minute (CFM) generated by industrial ceiling fans, commercial ceiling fans and agricultural ceiling fans, the relatively low amp draw or power usage, as well as the low cost per unit and square foot coverage combination, ceiling fans are tough to beat.
