Take Control

This industrial fan isn’t just high-powered—it’s also high-tech. Easily control Powerfoil 8 with the included resistive touchscreen wall control, add it to BAFCon or to your Building Management System to group and control multiple fans from one place. You can even integrate Powerfoil 8 into your facility’s fire suppression system or use it with the building automation system you already use.

Industrial-Grade Motor and Gearbox

  • Inline, helical-cut gears for efficient, reliable and durable operation
  • Ball bearings designed to accommodate hanging and thrust loads
  • Double lip seals to prevent any potential oil leakage
  • Vented and lubricated for life with synthetic oil


Powerfoil 8 comes standard with an intuitive, touchscreen, wall-mounted control, but when you want to integrate multiple Big Ass fans into your facility’s system, you want BAFCon. This upgraded controller allows you to connect fans to a single touchscreen control for easy operation, schedule fan run times and prevent changes with the password protection.

Upgrading to BAFCon also allows you to integrate your commercial fans with your building management systems (BMS) using Modbus RTU, BACnet, and 0-10 V protocols. With BAFCon, you get the convenience of centralized control combined with safety, and energy-efficiency. With advanced technology from Powerfoil 8 , comfort is always close at hand.
