What Exactly is an Industrial Ceiling Fan?

Industrial fans are large ceiling fans that are perfect for factories and warehouse settings, but there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding their name. Often misunderstood, these fans are commonly confused with industrial style and commercial ceiling fans. Continue reading to learn the benefits of large industrial ceiling fans and how they differ from other common fan types.

The Elements of an Industrial Ceiling Fan

Industrial ceiling fans start at 52” and can go all the way up to a 100” blade span. While standard ceiling fans are usually made of things like wood or thin plastic, industrial ceiling fans are usually constructed with materials like steel, aluminum, and industrial-grade plastic. This is what gives them the industrial style look that has made its way into the design of residential ceiling fans you can find in many people’s homes.

Residential ceiling fans can either be flush mounted or mounted on a down-rod, but this is not the case with industrial ceiling fans. 

Benefits of Industrial Fans

Industrial ceiling fans run at a lower speed but deliver a continuous stream of airflow to large spaces, so they employ powerful motors to get the right amount of traction. These fans work hard to cycle the warm air into the cooler air and lower the overall temperature of the space. That means they are a great way to cut down on energy costs for warehouses, and other large work areas. The bigger the fan, the better the airflow you can expect to receive.

Industrial Ceiling Fans vs. Commercial Ceiling Fans

While they are both used to cool vast spaces, industrial and commercial ceiling fans have some major differences. Industrial ceiling fans tend to be a little louder than commercial ceiling fans. This is because they are designed for use in workspaces like warehouses, factories, garages, and workshops and are typically intended to be the area’s main air-cooling source. Commercial ceiling fans, on the other hand, are designed to work in conjunction with traditional AC units as an additional source of airflow. This allows them to use a less powerful motor that produces little sound.

Industrial ceiling fans are trusted by factories and warehouses everywhere as their primary indoor cooling method. If you’re tired of long days full of sweat and heat, and industrial ceiling fan could be the perfect solutions for your workspace!

Light Kits

When looking to add ambiance to your home, attaching a light kit to your ceiling fan is the perfect solution. Not only does it widen your lighting possibilities, but it also helps to reduce energy costs. Light kits create layered lighting, bringing more dimension into your home, and opening your space. For porches and patios, there are also special damp and wet rated lighting kits.  Whatever space you’re looking to illuminate, a light kit will achieve desired results.

Glass Shades

Adding a glass shade to a fan utilizing a light kit gives you an opportunity to add personality to your fan. With options ranging from standard frosted glass to mosaic glass, there’s something for every home. Usually, these come in two styles – individual side glass and entire lighting cover. Individual side glass attaches to each of the separate lights while a glass casing will cover the entirety of the lighted portion of your ceiling fan. Besides being aesthetically pleasing, glass shades also help to diffuse the light, for a softer feel.

Remote Control

Ceiling fans that come with remote controls have been growing in popularity for a reason. Simply stated, they are designed to make your life easier. Adding a remote-control function to your ceiling fan can eliminate the need for pull chains, which gives your fan a sleeker appearance. A remote-control feature also eliminates the need for dealing with running extra wires through the ceiling and offers a workaround for those who lack such access. Oh, and of course, the convenience a remote-control ceiling fan adds to your life is amazing. You’ll never have to get out of bed again to change the blade speed!
