Industrial Use Fans

Heavy-duty industrial fans from AmeriWind are popular these days. Their appeal stems mostly from the fact that they function extremely well at making hot, harsh industrial conditions more comfortable for hardworking people on the inside.

Learn what distinguishes heavy-duty industrial fans and why you should purchase one (or more) for your heavy-duty environment.

What Makes A Heavy Duty Industrial Fan?

The terms "industrial" and "heavy duty" are frequently used to describe items that are intended to be exceptionally robust, rugged, and able to handle heavy use and stress.

You've probably noticed the difference in your daily life. You're probably not surprised when the inexpensive wrench you bought at a yard sale snaps during a particularly demanding job. When you buy a "heavy-duty" wrench, you want it to take a hammering and not break.

The same may be said for industrial ceiling fans. You'd be dissatisfied if you put a conventional fan from the hardware store in your hot, gritty, unclean industrial plant. Aside from not being powerful enough to make a difference in your building's comfort level, the fan is unlikely to be able to withstand the tough climate and rigorous use that you'd anticipate in an industrial setting.

Heavy-duty industrial fans, on the other hand, are built to with stand the harshest circumstances imaginable. Heat, humidity, dust, and grease are no match for a AmeriWind Fans heavy-duty fan. Our industrial ceiling fans take the abuse and spit it back out as great, continuous air flow throughout your building.

A few characteristics distinguish heavy-duty industrial fans from their household counterparts:

The Advantages Of Industrial Fans

Air conditioning is an apparent option for overheated staff. However, HVAC systems are costly to install and maintain in large structures such as warehouses. Industrial fans are a considerably more cost-effective choice for keeping your personnel comfortable and occupied.

Industrial fans help you maintain high productivity while keeping running expenses low by offering an optimal work environment at a fraction of the cost of A/C. That's an advantage that can quickly add up to tens of thousands of dollars in additional profit for your company, not to mention better staff retention and morale.

Remember that industrial fans operate best when combined with current HVAC systems. Because fans lessen the need for excessive air conditioning, you can save money on electricity.

Industrial Fan Design

An industrial fan is distinguished from a typical fan for residential or commercial usage by its shape, size, and design. Heavy-duty fans can be significantly larger.

 Materials And Parts

The term "industrial grade" refers to heavy-duty fans, namely the materials and components utilized to construct them. For ingress protection, AmeriWind Fans employs grade 5 hardware and IP56 or IP66ratings.


Heavy-duty industrial fans are also designed differently. While all fans perform the same basic purpose, engineers design each component to endure the worst conditions that nature, humans, and machines can throw at it.


Another need for a fan to be termed "heavy duty" is the environment in which it will be used. An auto repair shop, a large distribution warehouse, and a plastic molding plant are all examples of industrial buildings that require heavy-duty equipment, such as industrial ceiling fans.

How To Determine If You Require A Heavy Duty Industrial Fan

A heavy-duty industrial fan could be beneficial if you run aware house, factory, repair shop, mill, workshop, gymnasium, stable, or other large manufacturing-type business.

A heavy-duty fan can keep your employees, animals, or visitors comfortable and productive if your building becomes too hot in the summer or too chilly in the winter.

If installing and operating air conditioning at your company is prohibitively expensive, a heavy-duty industrial fan is an excellent alternative.
