Finding the Right Industrial Fan for a Warehouse

If you know anything about industrial fans, you’ve probably heard how excellent they are at improving air circulation in large buildings like warehouses. You may also know that industrial fans are highly energy efficient, typically operating for less than 50 cents a day. And, if you don’t already have one, you’ve likely heard about their most substantial benefit: boosting the productivity of your employees. 

Yet even if you’re familiar with the concept of industrial fans in warehouses, you may still be wondering how to select the right one. Aside from the dozens of brands and hundreds of models available, industrial fans come in a wide variety of sizes, prices, and configurations—not to mention the numerous technical features. 

Choosing the right—dare we say perfect—fan for your warehouse may seem somewhat difficult. But the airflow experts at Big Ass Fans are here to make it as easy as possible for you. 



Big Ass Fans’ Industrial Fans for Warehouses

Rather than break down lots of information about a long list of brands, we’re going to focus on the different industrial fan models available from Big Ass Fans. After all, we’re already the top-selling HVLS (high-volume, low-speed) fan manufacturer in the world. 

Big Ass Fans is the best place to start because we’ve been engineering, producing, and improving industrial fans for warehouses for more than 20 years—since right around the time they were first introduced to the market. You can find our fans in warehouses, factory floors, gymnasiums, dairies, workshops, and other large industrial facilities in countries across the globe. 

What makes Big Ass Fans so popular? So many reasons:

Maximum Airflow

The number-one job of any industrial fan in a warehouse is to provide constant, robust air circulation throughout the facility. Big Ass fans are designed to perform that job consistently for hours, days, and years on end. 

We can do more than brag about it. Our SpecLab® computational fluid dynamics software can demonstrate just how effective our fans are at improving airflow in your building. 

Tough-as-Nails Quality

Our industrial fans are designed by engineers who understand that every part matters. From our grade 8 hardware and patented airfoils to our hermetically sealed gearboxes, you can always count on Big Ass Fans to be made of durable materials designed to last for decades. 

High-Tech Features

These days, industrial fans can be integrated into security, fire suppression, and HVAC systems. They can also be upgraded to controllers with SmartSense™ technology that can be configured to automatically adjust to your preferences. You can connect up to 8 industrial fans to one touchscreen interface. 

Quiet Operation

Noise? What noise? Big Ass fans operate so quietly you can whisper without a problem. Our Powerfoil® D model comes with a powerful Neodymium magnet motor that’s virtually silent, even when running at high speeds. 

Size Options

You can choose a wide range of sizes from all our models, including the largest industrial HVLS fan on the market: the 30-foot Powerfoil® X4. Big Ass fans are available in diameter sizes including 8, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 24, or 30 feet (2.4, 3.6, 4.2, 4.8, 5.4. 6, 7.3, and 9.1 meters). 

Redundant Safety Features

Installing a Big Ass fan means having the peace of mind your team’s safety has been fully secured. Our fans feature up to eight redundant safety features to ensure secure operation. 

Product Support & Service

Choosing the right fan is so much more than selecting the equipment itself. Big Ass Fans provides ongoing support for your industrial fan purchase, including the industry’s longest warranties and annual maintenance plans to keep your fan running optimally for decades.

Understanding your options is just the first step to finding the right industrial fan for your warehouse. When you work with Big Ass Fans, we take the measurements of your facility—building dimensions, ceiling height, interior configuration, and other unique conditions—and create a one-of-a-kind computerized visualization of how our fans will perform in your space.
