Big Ass Fans

KEEP IT DRY

By maintaining consistent temperatures from ceiling to floor and wall to wall, Big Ass Fans® are an energy-efficient approach to producing consistent produce, reducing condensation and boosting worker comfort and productivity.

Big Ass Fans, which span up to 24 feet (7.3m) in diameter, move air throughout the entire space, including up and over obstructions such as machinery and stacked product. This airflow pattern ensures air reaches all corners of the building, maintaining consistent conditions throughout while eliminating condensation and stagnant spots where produce can quickly spoil.

YEAR-ROUND SAVINGS

Not only do Big Ass Fans keep produce dry, they also work with heating and ventilation systems to increase worker comfort and save money throughout the year. In the hotter months, they (obviously) cool things down. When set on slow speeds in winter, the fans use their large size—not speed—to redirect hot air down from the ceiling, creating an even temperature throughout with minimal energy use. This keeps everything from apples to zinnia seedlings at the right temperature.

KEEP THEM COMFORTABLE

Studies* have shown that more comfortable workers are safer and more productive. A single Big Ass Fan can replace dozens of small, noisy overhead and pedestal fans while using only a fraction of the energy. Move hot air away from technicians working on running machinery and provide a comforting breeze throughout the space at the same time.
