Overview: The two most important characteristics of commercial ceiling fans and industrial ceiling fans are HEAVY-DUTY CONSTRUCTION and PERFORMANCE (area coverage).
Industrial Ceiling Fans
are designed for spacious applications where maximum area coverage is required. Industrial grade 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 industrial ceiling fans with curved blades allow for mounting heights up to 25 feet (use the straight blade design for mounting heights below and beyond 45'). Engineered for continuous use, the following industrial ceiling fans are perfect for manufacturing facilities, warehouse and storage facilities, gymnasiums and any application where maximum air flow is required. These industrial ceiling fans are built to last! Reversible industrial ceiling fans are suitable for boosting air up to roof mounted exhaust fans, removing and preventing condensation gathering on ceilings and other draft free applications.
Commercial Ceiling Fans
are designed for applications such as classrooms, offices, retail stores, restaurants, etc. Designed for continuous use, these heavy duty commercial ceiling fans provide maximum area coverage for both summer cooling and winter heat de-stratification. 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 very useful 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 deal.
Agricultural Ceiling Fans
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 from entering the motor and epoxy coated blades and housings. They provide maximum area coverage for both summer cooling and winter heat de-stratification.
Heat Recovery: otherwise known as heat stratification is when industrial or commercial ceiling 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 itself in one year from the cost savings.
