In the 80's and 90's, there was a running joke in the automotive industry: anyone looking to buy a Jaguar needed two of them – one to drive and one to keep at the repair shop. Yet, at the same time, Toyota and Honda were producing some of the most highly rated, reliable cars available – for a much lower price. The lesson: while the look and prestige of a Jaguar was nice, the quality and reliability of Toyota and Honda were getting the job done. This applies to more than just cars, however. Sometimes, shelling out top dollar for the best looking “widget” doesn’t necessarily guarantee a long term, desired result. So, you need to ask yourself: do you value aesthetics or consistent performance?
From the beginning, Patterson has prided itself on being a no hassle, no frills, nuts-and-bolts, INDUSTRIAL fan company. Our fans won’t win any blue ribbons or beauty pageants for looks. They won’t amaze you with fancy bells and whistles. But, when it’s 95 degrees in the middle of July and you need to keep your employees cool and productive, Patterson’s simple, cost conscious, industrial grade fans will provide the necessary relief. Maintenance, if needed, is never a problem – modular designs allow for work to be done in place without ever having to remove the fan. So if you’re moving the same air, which would you choose – an expensive, fancy looking fan with lots of automation (that could potentially malfunction in an industrial environment) or a rugged, affordable, dependable fan – designed with your industrial space in mind and going to perform year after year?
Be sure to take a look at Patterson’s entire line of fan and air movement products – from the High-5 HVLS fan for large, open areas to the high velocity fans for aisles, mezzanines, and pick modules. Need to move air down a row of workstations or an assembly line? Check out the Power Tube or the new db fan. Mobile cooling? Patterson has drum fans and pedestal strollers to help get the air where it’s needed most. All of this is backed by the strongest warranties in the market, and sold by representatives who have a passion for keeping your employees working safely.
So, when it comes to the fans in your building, what’s it going to be? Style… or substance?
