June 16, 2009 – The Big
Ass Fan Company, well recognized for its presence in industrial,
commercial and agricultural environments, has carved a niche in a
setting with a strong, growing demand: helicopter hangars.  For the
past ten years, the Lexington, Ky.-based business has been alleviating
many of the air movement problems facing the aviation industry,
including cooling, heat recirculation and aircraft-integrity issues.

Big Ass Fans’ PowerfoilX Plus, specifically designed to move air over
and around obstructions like aircraft, keeps mechanics more comfortable
and productive during the hot summer months by lowering their perceived
temperatures. During the winter, Big Ass Fans keep hangars warmer and
cut heating costs by redirecting hot air trapped at the ceiling down to
the floor level. Year-round, the increased airflow prevents
condensation from causing corrosion damage on aircrafts and creating a
slip-hazard for occupants.

Kim Bolen, Maintenance Office for the Army Aviation Support Facility in
Frankfort, Ky., notes that the air movement from Big Ass Fans
eliminates the needs for targeted, inefficient pedestal fans. ”Our Big
Ass Fan has increased air movement in the hangar and creates airflow
even around obstructions like our helicopters, toolboxes, maintenance
stands, and other pieces of equipment,” claims Bolen.

LEED-registered, government, private and corporate hangars are all
taking advantage of Powerfoil X Plus’ ability to increase both mechanic
comfort and the efficiency of operations. Through advanced aeronautic
design and engineering, Big Ass Fans continues to improve helicopter
hangars throughout the world, one rotation at a time.
