Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in Toronto, Ontario, annually draws nearly 3,000 members and guests, all of whom enjoy feeling the warm Canadian sun on their skin. Sometimes that Canadian sun was a bit too warm on their bare skin, lowering participation in popular outdoor sports leagues on hot days. With a stretch of 100°F (38°C) weather approaching, owner Stéphane Deschênes needed a safe, reliable way to keep athletes cool. Cheap directional fans weren’t durable enough for outdoor use, and sprinklers left the ground a sopping, hazardous mess.
Yellow Jacket® by Big Ass Fans® combines the best solutions for outdoor cooling – water and air movement. The ultra-fine mist produced by Yellow Jacket’s optional misting system dries almost instantly in the durable fan’s powerful airflow, creating immediate cooling and preventing the ground from getting soaked. Plus, the fan’s evaporative cooling effect is amplified because Bare Oaks’ visitors don’t wear clothes. At a recent volleyball tournament, 80 athletes took turns basking in Yellow Jacket’s cooling mist between matches. During eight hours of play, there were no extended heat breaks, despite the 100°F (38°C) temperatures
