Gearless high-volume, low-speed fan
The new Direct Drive high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan from Rite-Hite, Milwaukee, Wis., delivers temperature-related solutions using addition by subtraction – no noise and no oil.
Configured with three Propell-AirTM blades, the Direct Drive HVLS fan comes standard with 24-foot diameter blades.
A single Direct Drive HVLS fan can circulate up to 85 feet from the fan’s center in all directions for optimum heating or cooling of an area encompassing up to 22,000 square feet. The unique design directs air outward from the center in a conical shape, eliminating dead-air holes directly beneath the fan and in building corners.
Furthermore, it can be controlled with an easy-to-use digital touch-screen Fan Commander or wirelessly through a smart device or incorporated into a building management system.
