Do HVLS Fans Work For Cooling Animals?

Increase animal comfort, happiness and productivity with HVLS fans. 

Agriculture is much of what New Zealand is known for - meat and dairy production - it makes sense then that we do what we can to keep our animals comfortable.  Animal happiness and reducing heat stress increases their productivity, which in turn make your business more money.

Did you know that in the late 1990's an innovator in his field was commissioned by a university professor to find a solution to heat stress on dairy animals that would in turn increase the milk yield for farmers.  This is when and why high volume low speed ceiling fans were invented, and their initial purpose being to cool animals.  It was the natural step to conclude this would also be an effective method of cooling people in large hot spaces as well.   

Our slow rotating industrial ceiling fans can be easily and safely mounted in cow sheds, dairy farms, goat sheds, horse stables etc, to help reduce the stress heat on your animals.   

Happy Customers of Jet Black Fans

What do I think of Jet Black Fans?  Awesome, our own team installed them, very easy to install... easy to put up, great piece of kit, easy to use, can't fault them.

Value for money absolutely.  It is hard to put a price on keeping the team happy, at a very busy part of the year you can't afford to have them falling over with dehydration and heat exhaustion, very, very, very well worth it."

FAQ's for Agriculture Facilities

Can these be used Outdoors?

Yes! As long as the fan is covered, not exposed directly to the weather, then these can be used outside. IP55 rating from an internationally accredited NZ IP testing facility means you can trust this rating.

Which fan is best for me?

Check out our different options above, depending on your facility type, largely depends on your ceiling height and mounting availability.

Most Agriculture applications are cow sheds or goat sheds which generally use Diamond or Eurus Series for ultimate and even airflow distribution.

Horse stables often prefer the wall mounted HVLS fans for a more directional airflow to help relieve horse boredon in the stalls as they play in the airflow, as well as keeping several stalls cool at once.

How many fans will we need?

As a general rule of thumb, 1 fan comfortably cools 500m2 of stable or farm shed space.

Because there are generally obstacles in the shed / stables, this will disrupt the airflow, which means you may require more fans. It is an investment into animal welfare that pays itself off with increased milk production and healthier animals (heat stress reduced).
