HOT AIR RISES, COSTS FALL
In a large open space, it is difficult to achieve ideal air distribution. Cold air tends to settle while warm air rises, resulting in stratified layers that tend to stagnate. In addition, it is not uncommon for the temperature difference to result in the formation of cold down-drafts along vertical surfaces. These can cause uncomfortable cold spots in the building.
For these reasons, it is often a good idea to incorporate an air distribution solution, such as large industrial HVLS (high-volume, low-speed) ceiling fans, into the design.
CAPTAIN OF THE AIR; NO TURBULENCE AHEAD
High-Volume, Low-Speed (HVLS) fans are large fans that move a significant amount of air. We intentionally designed our HVLS fan with symmetrical blades that allows for true reversibility during the winter months. The benefit is the fan will effectively de-stratify uneven temperatures that can be in excess of 30 degrees from floor to ceiling and can successfully provide up to 40,000 square feet of destratification coverage.
