Large-scale airflow and quiet, efficient operation, Essence is the perfect fit for spaces that require more airflow or a bigger, bolder look.

Product Highlights

Combining elegant aesthetics with unparalleled durability. With gearless direct drive motor technology, and aircraft-grade aluminium Essence is engineered for maximum energy efficiency and whisper-quiet operation.

Available in 2.4 and 4.3-meter diameter options, Essence is perfectly sized for large, open spaces. With superior quality, we are confident that you will love your Essence fan for years to come.

Superior Safety

At Big Ass Fans, safety is our top priority. Essence is equipped with high-quality grade 8 hardware, along with optional guy wires, to ensure the utmost safety and stability. This sleek and efficient airflow solution not only looks beautiful, but also offers the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re investing in a safe and reliable product.

Beams, Sloped or High Ceilings

Big spaces call for big fans, however, they require more clearance than smaller ones. Essence needs at least 3 meters of clearance from the ground to the winglet.

If you have high ceilings, our Essence extension tube kit is the perfect solution! The upper mount included with your Essence fan is suitable for ceilings ranging from 3.7 to 4 meters in height with a slope of 0 to 33 degrees. Ceilings taller than 4 meters require an additional extension tube kit.

Connection via BAFCon allows you to sync up to eight fans effortlessly, featuring SmartSense® automated modes that adjust the fan speeds based on temperature for optimal efficiency, reducing energy consumption without compromising comfort.
