Ceiling Fan: Rite-Hite
To keep people more comfortable year-round — and to help building owners and managers drive down energy costs — Rite-Hite Corporation says it is offering the Revolution® Fan. Designed to deliver optimal performance, the high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan supplements heated and cooled air for more efficient and cost-effective air circulation in virtually any facility.
A single Revolution Fan circulates a large volume of air up to 85 ft from the fan’s center in all directions for optimum heating or cooling of an area encompassing up to 22,000 sq ft. Unlike traditional floor and ceiling fans, company officials said the fan turns slowly to gently move air — reducing the ambient noise level and a facility’s energy consumption by up to 30%
Available in 8-, 12-, 16-, 20-, and 24-ft diameters, the Revolution Fan’s four-blade design includes controls that allow users to adjust fan speed or operate the unit in reverse. The unit comes standard with mill-finished, aluminum blades. Rite-Hite Fan’s Propell-Aire™ blade design has a complex contoured shape (tilt, taper, and twist) that varies along its length, allowing for maximum air movement. Mounting heights range from 15 to 80 ft from the finished floor to the bottom of the fan blade. Also available is a touchscreen control box for operation of up to 18 Rite-Hite Fans.
