For 20 years, Big Ass industrial fans have set the standard for powerful, efficient airflow that transforms uncomfortable facilities and lowers overhead costs.
We led the way with direct-drive technology 10 years ago; now we’re pacing the field with Powerfoil D, the only direct-drive overhead fan purpose-built for harsh conditions. In the hot, dusty environments that put competitors’ fans out of commission, Powerfoil D thrives with cool, quiet operation.
THE SIZE AND MUSCLE TO CREATE HIGH-VOLUME AIRFLOW, BUT IT'S NOT ALL BRAWN.
Big Ass Fans was forged in industrial conditions, so we fully appreciate the need for products that promote and maintain safe operations in tough environments. That’s why no other industrial fan has more redundant safety features than Powerfoil D.
- Durable Grade 8 hardware and no critical exposed welds for fail-safe connections
- Two-set safety cable system made from aircraft-grade galvanised steel Steel retainers and Aerofoil Restraint System for robust hub and aero foil security
- Built-in accelerometer for automatic shutdown upon impact Fire suppression system integration for automated safety
Powerfoil D has the size and muscle to create high-volume airflow, but it’s not all brawn; its Neodymium magnet motor runs quietly and with incredible efficiency, so there’s no mechanical noise to distract people in your space.
The airflow from Powerfoil D makes occupants feel up to 6 °C cooler in summer, and in winter gently recirculates the heated air trapped at the ceiling back down where people need it.
