Oversized Industrial HVLS Fan

Where do High Volume Low Speed fans work best?

High Volume Low Speed (HVLS) fans are arguably the most effective and efficient way to cool large buildings with high ceilings.  Jet Black Fans have experienced first hand that HVLS Fans are in fact the ONLY affordable way to cool people in buildings such as uninsulated industrial shed warehouses. 

Traditional cooling and ventilation systems are either cost prohibitive to install the system, too expensive to operate, or not fit for purpose (i.e. very loud or require closed spaces rather than open dispatch areas, etc). 

Many customers come to Jet Black Fans because a traditional cooling system is not achievable to install, and they recognise our HVLS fans provide the best and most cost effective alternative solution for them to create a more comfortable indoor environment for their staff and customers.
