Sports and fitness facilities often over heat in summer, causing discomfort to members, staff and athletes. In hot conditions we often see heat stress which is counter-productive to athletes and often causes health and safety concerns.
Jet Black Fans has a variety of ceiling fans, wall mounted fans, portable fans and freestanding fans which run on HVLS technology to create a huge amount of airflow very efficiently and very quietly. This airflow is what creates the cooling effect by breaking down the natural moisture barrier around your skin, it causes evaporation which leads to an intense cooling effect. This effect is actually increased in cases where there is more moisture on your skin, which is why it is so effective for cooling perspiring athletes.
We have worked in the sports industry for over 8 years and have seen first hand how the heat can cause lack of retention in staff and members, and athletes not performing to their best ability. In gymnasiums where we have installed high volume low speed ceiling fans, the customers are blown away with the difference they make to everyone's general happiness and feeling of well being.
Even the training facilities for Olympic athletes, such as Simone Biles, use HVLS Ceiling Fans for their extreme cooling sensation.From 19 seconds into this video you can see 2 huge HVLS ceiling fans operating in the background.
If your ceiling height is less than 3.5m then we would recommend a wall mounted or portable fan as a better solution for you. These are very effective at moving tons of air, much more effectively and efficiently than the popular low volume high speed models that are most prominent in fitness clubs. The thing we love most about our fans is that they are basically silent so your staff don't have to bellow over the noise of a fan, and members walk away feeling generally better and less head-achy than they would normally.
Check out our different options above, depending on your facility type, largely depends on your ceiling height and mounting availability.
If you have a tricky ceiling with lots of obstructions then go for a wall mounted or portable option. If you are not sure which is best for you then give us a call to talk it through. We have seen so many scenarios and love helping you find the best cooling solution for you.
These fans are so easy to install and cause no cosmetic damage to the building - just some bolt holes in the mounting area. So when you are ready to relocate, simply dismantle them (qualified electrician) and install in your new facility.
