Summer Breeze makes Technicians Feel Fine

The perceived cooling effect of air movement—which Big Ass Fans specialize in—can make a person feel up to 5.6°C cooler. That perceived cooling translates to more comfortable, more focused technicians.

You can Have the Floor Space, We’ll use the Ceiling

Big Ass Fans, spanning up to 7.3m (24 feet) in diameter, move air throughout the entire space, from ceiling to floor and wall to wall, including up and over obstructions like, say, your aircraft. This airflow pattern ensures air reaches all corners of the building, maintaining consistent conditions throughout and eliminating condensation issues that may affect worker comfort, floor traction or aircraft integrity.

Winter Takes Off

Stratification occurs because air from a heater is 5 to 7 percent less dense than ambient air in a space and rises to the ceiling. This leads to a 16.7 °C floor-to-ceiling temperature differential. While managers pump warm air into the space, technicians at the ground level are freezing their ratchets off. Big Ass Fans resolve this issue by gently pushing hot air down without creating a draft. This steady mixing of air —destratification, as we like to call it—creates a uniform temperature throughout the space. Even though the thermostat set point remains the same, the heating system does not have to work as hard to maintain the given thermostat setpoint, reducing both energy costs and consumption.

Process improvement

Even if you don’t give a hoot about your techs or energy bills, there are plenty of other reasons to love Big Ass Fans. From paint and repairs to drying aircraft, Big Ass Fans minimise turnaround time, speed up day-to-day processes and reduce maintenance downtime. Birds and insects avoid the airflow of Big Ass Fans, reducing droppings and other debris that fall on aircraft and the floor. And by moving your fans from the floor to the ceiling, you’re minimising trip hazards and floor clutter.
