"I have a 35,000 sq ft facility and would like to know what fans you would recommend."
High Velocity or High Volume? When and Where?
When deciding between a high velocity or high volume (HVLS) fan, one must first assess the given area - for while both achieve the goal of people cooling, each has its own set of requirements that maximize their effectiveness.
HVLS fans work best in open areas, where air can be accelerated vertically toward the floor, then outward in all directions. Assembly and inspection lines, loading docks, and staging areas are all great examples where an HVLS fan would provide a comfortable working environment.
By contrast, high velocity fans provide horizontal air movement in more confined spaces, such as aisle ways, pick modules, or any area where material may be stacked floor to ceiling. For more information on the best fan application for your facility, contact a Patterson sales rep today!
