Big Ass Fans have been a welcome addition to fitness centers since their inception over 10 years ago, providing enhanced member comfort through air movement as well as reduced energy costs for facility owners.
Designed to quietly circulate large columns of air, Big Ass Fans provide non-disruptive, comforting breezes that create a “feeling of coolness” by evaporating moisture on the skin. By speeding up the evaporation process, people feel more comfortable. This is something air conditioning systems are unable to achieve on their own. Large facilities with tall ceilings and mezzanines, Big Ass Fans help destratify the air, creating even temperatures throughout the space.
This silent, steady air movement comes as a result of Big Ass Fans precision engineering. The commercial-grade Element®, sized from 12 to 20 feet in diameter, and the lightweight, eight to 10 foot diameter Isis® seamlessly integrate into any fitness environment, even those with ceilings as low as 12 feet.
Big Ass Fans’ proprietary direct drive motor eliminates mechanical noise and allows for maintenance-free operation. The unprecedented electronic system incorporates on-board controls that eliminate electrical interference, while internal diagnostics monitor balance, temperature and electrical consumption making it the most technologically advanced fan on the market.
Time For Some Big Air
With the ongoing need to keep comfort in check, adding extra capacity to existing HVAC systems can be expensive. Big Ass Fans add the required additional cooling capacity and works to make existing systems more efficient. To remain competitive, fitness facilities constantly find innovative ways to upgrade and modernize, leading to sophisticated electronic systems on cardio equipment and weight machines. Add to this club requisites such as audio/visual equipment, surveillance systems or keycard systems, it’s cumbersome to introduce additional electronic “noise.” Big Ass Fans were designed to take this challenge out of the equation by eliminating excessive wiring with onboard controls. At the same time, installing large diameter ceiling fans eliminates the clutter caused by ineffective floor fans, allowing members to move about more freely.
