High Volume Low Speed (HVLS) fans are the best way to cool people in large spaces such as fitness centres and sports clubs. Easy. Affordable. Quiet. Safe. Look no further for your summer solution.
Many clubs and fitness centres suffer from lack of cooling as it is cost prohibitive both to install and to operate. Because large spaces are so difficult to effectively and efficiently cool, they are often left to suffer the extremeties of weather with intense heat and humidity in summer and cold and full of condensation throughout winter.
There is an affordable way to combat this problem, both for summer and winter. You may be wondering why you have never heard of this before - don't worry, you are not alone in being unaware of this great product. HVLS fans were invented in the late 1990's and used in high heat areas around the world, largely America, before crossing to Asia, Middle East, Europe and Australia. They are now slowly entering NZ as they have proven themselves so effective at combating heat in overseas facilities.
NZ facilities are often under insulated, with fitness and sports clubs largely operating from large industrial buildings. This type of facility presents so many problems for effective heating and cooling. This is where HVLS fans come in as the only effective and affordable cooling solution for your members. These fans work by pushing huge amounts of air around the building, creating circulation which thereby increases ventilation, disperses unpleasant odours, decreases humidity all while cooling people down. Think about a hot day outside - if there is no breeze it can be unbearable, however add a breeze and suddenly the temperature seems to drop and become more tolerable; these fans work the same way.
Another great aspect about these fans is the range of applications they can be used in, available in wall mounted, ceiling mounted, portable or freestanding. No matter your facility type, these can be easily installed and dismantled / moved to new premises as required.
Key Benefits Include:
- So quiet you will not notice them
- Massive airflow for ultimate cooling of members
- So cheap to operate - from 100w - 1.8KW at maximum power, you will barely notice it on your power bill
- Reduce odours through circulation
- Increase indoor air quality
- Variable speed drive - you control the breeze
- Jet Black Fans have the only fans in NZ seismically tested and rated for BIL1,2&3 in all areas of NZ without requiring additional (expensive) restraints
