(HVLS) are offered in sizes up to 24' in diameter, responsible for distributing copious amounts of air across your industrial facility at low rotational speeds. These are engineered to keep your employees and staff comfortable without disrupting the workflow process.
Industrial Door Systems helps you improve the functionality of your facility. Industrial Door Systems also stocks other high-quality commercial products; high speed doors, fire resistant doors and barrier arms. Here, we'll go over the types of HVLS fans available on the market, along with their features and benefits.
A high-volume low-speed ceiling fan (shortened to HVLS fan in most cases) is a ceiling fan that uses its size, rather than its speed, to move significant amounts of air, unlike smaller fans that create turbulent air streams that quickly dissipate.
Although these fans were originally made for large spaces and facilities, they have evolved in their capabilities as the technology improves. You can now find them in a wide variety of industrial, commercial, retail and residential spaces.
Air is slowly circulated in large volume, over a large area beyond its actual size, with the ability to rotate in either direction to move hot air to the floor or lift hot air to the ceiling, depending on season & requirement. Most of these highly efficient, cost-saving commercial fans have been used in warehouses, distribution centers, gyms and automotive facilities, just to name a few.
The air circulated from an HVLS fan provides a convection-like air current. In large facilities, multiple fans are spaced out accordingly to provide maximum air flow throughout, all managed by 1 main control panel.
As air circulation increases in the area, hot and humid air is removed and replaced with cooler, drier air. This results in a cooling effect on occupants, equipment, floors and product.
Types of HVLS Fans
Industrial Door Systems offers a variety of HVLS fans that fall under 3 main classes, Axiom, Alite 3, and Altra-Air Sailfin fans. Each of them has a different function and size; we'll help you determine the right product for your facility.
The Benefits of HVLS Fans
HVLS fans have continuous monthly and annual benefits by creating a comfortable environment that reduces energy costs and makes your facility more environmentally friendly. They keep indoor environments cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter months. Functioning HVLS fans also consume less power than multiple small ceiling fans, saving you more money in the long term.
