Industrial Fans - More Information


Industrial Floor Fan

What are Industrial Fans?

Industrial Fans from our Tools and Supplies collection are designed to move huge volumes of air around for ventilation and cooling purposes. They are widely used in many industries such as manufacturing, food processing and metal manufacturing.

How do Industrial Floor Fans work?

Driven by electric motors or turbines, Industrial Fans have several rotating blades which are connected to the hub and shaft. Many Industrial Fans have an oscillating mechanism – as it turns from side to side the direction of the air current is altered. Others have two or three-speed mechanisms, and a blade cradle that tilts, so that the air can be directed to where it is needed. 

What are the benefits of Industrial Fans?

  • Constantly circulating air improves the comfort levels for employees and visitors, especially during hot weather. This in turn improves productivity and motivation. Industrial fans don’t actually cool the air but they cool the body with their ‘wind chill’ effect
  • Properly circulating air is needed when working with flammable and / or hazardous substances – check that the Industrial Fan is safe to use for this purpose
  • Industrial Fans are a cost-effective option compared with air conditioning units

It’s worth bearing in mind that Industrial Fans are often noisy, so are not suitable for office use. Instead, look for a Desk or Office Fan as they will be much quieter.

Which Industrial Fans are in the First Mats UK range?

We have a wide range of Industrial Fans that allow you to choose the right size, shape and type for your needs. All of our Industrial Fans are fully guarded, which eliminates the risk of contact with rotating blades and they also include a one-year guarantee from purchase.
