Horticulture plays a huge part in our New Zealand economy, including many employment opportunities. Why then would we not try to look after staff and create a more comfortable working environment for them in those hot summer months?
The answer is generally that there have been no solutions that are affordable. This is where high volume low speed (HVLS) ceiling fans come into play.
Our industrial sized ceiling fans have 5 wide blades that are pitched at a degree engineered to move the most amount of air, while retaining a very efficient use of energy. This produces a breeze throughout which lifts the stagnant heat and by creating airflow produces a natural cooling effect on your people.
We have had reports of overall staff engagement and happiness increasing and mistakes decreasing, which is believed to contribute to a better financial position of the business.
It is hard to put a price on staff well being; working in a more comfortable environment where it is visible that employers are doing their best to create a cooler environment goes a long way for most.
We have people who have worked in the kiwifruit industry for over 30 years, so we know what considerations there are in horticulture and we have seen first hand just how effective these fans can be for your packhouse or shed for keeping your staff far more comfortable.
Many Packhouses and sheds have their own engineering team and sparky on board. these fans are simple to install and can be completed by your own qualified team, making this a more affordable and easy process for many.
All our fans come with a control box which has a variable speed drive, allowing you to adjust the breeze to the perfect speed where it generates the cooling effect for employees, but no disruption to your bags and pocket packs etc.
