Airport Hangar and Aviation
Inconsistent temperatures can lead to slippery floors and serious safety risks. Falls are the leading cause of employee injuries, according to the National Floor Safety Institute – and slips due to moisture on the floor make up more than 10 percent of all falls.
Ground damage events cost the aircraft industry business over $100 (€93) million/year. Some, such as maintenance-related risks, environmental issues and towing risks, could be significantly reduced with HVLS fans designed for airport hangers.
Safety in the air and on the ground
Eliminate slippery floors
HVLS fans mix warmer air at the ceiling with cooler air at the floor to minimize ceiling-to-floor temperature differentials and increase the surface evaporation rate in an aircraft hangar.
Keep it comfortable
Plane owners will appreciate the comfort as they board their planes, and technicians working on highly advanced equipment will appreciate being able to concentrate on their work with an aircraft hangar fan. Check out this case study about how our Revolution fans helped the workers at Banyan Air Service in Fort Lauderdale, FL stay cool by improving airflow.
Protect planes and other mechanical equipment
Reducing humidity, moisture and bacteria helps prevent condensation on the planes, cutting the risk of rust and other mechanical issues.
The FAA receives more than 10,000 reports of bird strikes per year, at a cost of $600 (€560) million to civil aviation. Aircraft hangar fans discourage birds from nesting in the hangar, reducing the risk of bird strikes and eliminating nests and droppings inside the hangar. Additionally, the sheer number of fans needed is dramatically decreased. Banyan Air went from 24 floor fans and three exhaust fans to using just three Revolution Fans between its two buildings (18,000 square feet and 24,000 square feet, respectively).
Banyan Air Service was able to not only improve air movement at their southern Florida aircraft facility with our Revolution fan, but the fan also acts as a bird deterrent that helps eliminate the dangers birds present to aviation facilities.
