Industrial steel sheds are so common in New Zealand as they are the most economical form of building large spaces. In turn they are generally lacking adequate insulation which means they suffer the extremities of temperature, particularly in the summer and winter months.
High Volume Low Speed fans are enormous ceiling fans that move literally tons of air throughout large spaces. When this moving air hits your skin it creates a dramatic cooling effect, which largely relieves employee discomfort and heat fatigue. In some spaces it is now a major health and safety concern to have overheating staff and no effective form of cooling in place. Historically it has been cost prohibitive to cool large steel sheds due to the lack of insulation, the natural drafts throughout / not airtight, and overall vastness of the building - the capital spend alone on installing a refrigeration cooling or HVAC system is enormous, then the operational expenses relating to this cooling makes it totally unavailable to many.
HVLS fans are very efficient to operate - you likely will not even notice it operating, silent, comfortable and will not break the bank for your capital expenditure. This is truly a cooling solution you can afford.
