When spectators are sweating more than the athletes, it may be time for a change. Professional, collegiate and high school stadiums are making BIG moves to ensure the game day experience is nothing short of spectacular. During the summer, stadiums and their concourses heat up as quickly as the competition. Air conditioning isn’t an efficient solution for many of these open air environments, and the swamp coolers on the field are typically reserved for the players. For the past decade, stadiums have been turning to Big Ass Fans as a comfort-providing solution. Powerfoil X creates a breezy atmosphere throughout the stands and concourses, keeping fans and employees safe from heat-related illnesses. Powerfoil®X2.0 is fully customizable with a range of stock and custom colors. So choose your colors and show support for your team in a BIG way!
In the winter, concourse areas are sometimes overheated to maintain a comfortable temperature for people at the floor. This means setting the thermostat at a higher temperature than needed at the floor in an effort to achieve a reasonably comfortable temperature at the occupant level. But as everyone knows heat rises, leaving hot air at the ceiling and cooler air on the floor. This stratification of air results in increased heat loss and energy costs. Unlike small ceiling fans, Big Ass Fans are slowed to recirculate heated air without causing an unwanted draft. By recirculating the air, the fans lower the average temperature in the space, allowing you to reduce the thermostat set point, thereby reducing heating costs by as much as 30% while keeping people comfortable. Check out the SmartSense365, which can automate your Big Ass Fans and ensure you maximize your energy savings.
Some of your stadium’s most important visitors are in its smallest spaces—the suites and locker rooms. A compact, stylish Haiku ceiling fan provides the perfect solution in spaces too small for a large diameter, low speed fan. The sleek profile conceals patent-pending electronics and a cool-running motor with an integrated digital inverter drive that delivers silent performance and an 80% improvement in efficiency over conventional ceiling fan motors.
From the freezing cold of Wisconsin to the sweltering heat of Florida, Big Ass Fans are keeping air moving and fans comfortable. Still not sure which fan you need? Contact one of our Big Ass Fan Experts to discuss your athletic facility's air movement needs.
