Indoor Sports


From high school gyms to NFL sporting arenas, Big Ass Fans® add much-needed air movement to maintain comfort for athletes and spectators.

Working with your HVAC system, Big Ass Fans circulate conditioned air to reduce load requirements in the summer and recirculate heat trapped at the ceiling in the winter.

In the warm summer months, Big Ass Fans offer a perceived cooling effect of up to 10°F (5.6°C) while silently and evenly distributing conditioned air throughout the space. Operating solo, Big Ass Fans move stagnant air to achieve the same cooling effect, especially in facilities with tall ceilings, where small diameter overhead fans are pretty much useless.

In winter, slow your Big Ass Fans to gently redirect warm air collecting at the ceiling back down to floor level. By creating a more uniform temperature throughout the space, not only will your visitors be more comfortable, but your heating expenses will drop by as much as 30 percent. That’s a win-win in anyone’s court.

Proper ventilation, indoor air quality control and the diffusion of chloramines in facilities with natatoriums all have an effect on athletes. Air circulation from Big Ass Fans contributes to all of these elements, and the fans easily interface with your building automation systems to further enhance efficiency.


If you’re seeking LEED designation for your facility, Big Ass Fans has more than 40 LEED-accredited design team members ready to assist you during any stage of the design process–from initial designs to final installation. We’re also happy to send Revit® files, technical specs or even help you through the LEED process.


To make your life a little easier and your facility run a little smoother, BAFWorks® enables you to network and control your fans, lights and ventilation equipment from a single location.

Our athletic specialists know what’s important to facilities maintenance staff, from tennis courts to natatoriums to gyms.
