HVLS fan use in fitness centres and indoor sports

How can HVLS fans help with indoor sports and fitness centres?

Sports and fitness facilities are often in under insulated premises that over heats in summer, causing discomfort to members, staff and athletes.  In overheating conditions we often see heat stress which is counter productive to your athletes and often causes situations where they cannot train at their full capacity due to health and safety concerns with the over bearing heat.  

Jet Black Fans has HUGE 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.

What if we have low ceilings?

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.

Which fan is best for me?
