Warehouses and distribution centers are difficult to keep cool in the summer. An uncomfortable work environment can be dangerous for your employees and therefore dangerous for your bottom line. For decades NASA has studied human physical performance at elevated temperatures and high humidity. Results indicate that once temperatures reach 70° F, productivity begins to decline. A strong correlation also exists between heat and work-related accidents. Keeping workers comfortable with our warehouse fans not only increases productivity, but keeps them safer. Powerfoil®X2.0 can lower the effective temperature reducing heat related accidents† while improving overall comfort. But what about those small, ceiling-obstructed areas in your facility that need airflow but can't accommodate a large ceiling fan? Don't worry, we've got you covered. An oscillating 6-ft Pivot 180 can mount to a column and cover a large area. Need mobile airflow? An AirGo or a Yellow Jacket pack big airflow in small, yet mobile packages.
Our fans minimize sweating concrete, or "Sweating Slab Syndrome" which occurs naturally when temperatures fluctuate in spaces with concrete flooring. Concrete sweating negatively affects product such as metal or corrugated boxes and can be a serious safety hazard on floors. Using Big Ass Fans to circulate the correct amount of air at the right time minimizes sweating slab syndrome and creates a drier space.
Over the past decade heating costs have increased dramatically. This cost increase has stimulated interest in heat destratification as a way to improve heating system efficiency while maintaining employee comfort throughout the winter. Big Ass Fans has proven to be an effective way to equalize air temperatures between floor and ceiling levels, contributing significantly to a decrease in heating costs. In the winter, destratifying the space with Big Ass Fans can reduce heating costs by an average of 30%. Regardless of the season, Big Ass Fans provide proper air circulation in conditioned or non-conditioned spaces.
