Big Ass Fans® today introduced the world’s first LED-equipped industrial ceiling fan, an all-in-one package that’s an ideal addition to facilities’ energy-efficient lighting programs.
The Powerfoil X LED delivers as much light as a massive, 400-watt metal halide, covering the entire diameter of the fan while using less than 175 watts. Its tempered glass lens is designed to provide excellent optical properties which minimize glare. The light is easily installed and ties directly into an existing lighting grid for simple control.
The LED is equipped to the Powerfoil®X, which is Big Ass Fans’ most durable, quiet and effective industrial ceiling fan. It generates huge volumes of gentle air movement using small 1- to 2-horsepower motors, making it an extremely energy-efficient way to cool large areas. With the integration of the LED, the new Powerfoil X LED eliminates any need to rearrange lighting grids to avoid a shadowing effect that may occur with very large (8-ft. to 24-ft. diameter) ceiling fans. Most importantly, the Powerfoil X LED directs the light where it’s needed most—beneath the fan where people are working.
