Yellow Jacket


Keeping dozens of basketball players comfortable in a large, non-air-conditioned recreation facility is challenging; add 25,000 summer campers to the mix and the task becomes nearly impossible. Air conditioning the 80-year-old space with three full-length basketball courts was cost prohibitive, and previously-used pedestal fans were more disruptive than useful. This recreation space required a flexible air movement solution that could deliver comfort when and where it was needed most.


One 8-ft (2.4-m) mobile AirGo® and one smashingly durable Yellow Jacket® from Big Ass Fans. With adjustable speeds, effortless mobility and superior coverage area, AirGo and Yellow Jacket replaced the noisy pedestal fans and provide non-disruptive comfort for campers, athletes and staff. Simple maneuverability makes targeted airflow a breeze, giving Penn State relief from the heat wherever it’s needed. With variable speed drives maximizing efficiency and adjustability, AirGo and Yellow Jacket provide quiet air movement solutions for recreational crowds of any size.
