Yellow Jacket | Big Ass Fans

Yellow Jacket®

Sick airflow, bro. Yellow Jacket® is the Smashingly Durable® portable and mountable fan that takes abuse and stays in use. Available 18- (45.7cm) and 36-inch (91.4cm) pedestals allow you to direct Yellow Jacket’s airflow where it’s needed to keep employees comfortable. Mount it to a column or wall to get airflow in areas with no floor space. If it gets dirty, don’t worry — you can spray it down with a hose to get it squeaky clean. Need to dress it up? Yellow Jacket can be painted in 8 classic colors, or a custom matched color.

Featured Case Study: Waterfall Sports & Wellness

We had other wall fans, but they provided little airflow, cluttered up the space, and didn't fit with our style. Your Yellow Jacket fans look more modern and provide a gentle, cooling breeze for our customers. Paul Mok, Project Consultant, Eagle Sky Engineering Ltd.


Hong Kong’s Waterfall Sports & Wellness needed to cool its patrons with fans that fit the facility’s modern décor. Big Ass Fans got the air moving by installing six sleek, all-black Yellow Jacket fans at strategic points for optimal airflow.
