Ventilation Fans

What is a ventilation fan?

Working in stuffy environments with heavy machinery or equipment can become uncomfortable very quickly, especially in hotter months with no ventilation. Working in a factory or warehouse where you can’t have open windows means you will need some sort of ventilation fan. Ventilation fans, or more specifically industrial cooling fans, help by moving hot air around which can help alleviate stuffy atmospheres. Ventilation fans designed for industrial settings are also built to take more heavy-duty usage. Ventilation fans are more used to circulate the air to bring cooler cleaner air into the room. A ventilation fan can either draw in fresh air form outside and remove contaminated air from inside, or it can simply be used to create air circulation.

Where can Broughton EAP ventilation fans be used?


Industrial cooling fans that are portable can be used to create air movement within specific areas for a more pleasant working environment. If there is a certain part of the warehouse that is particularly stuffy then you can easily move the industrial cooling fan to that area. A ventilation fan will help keep the air clean by removing airborne contaminants such and ducting them away.


While working on vehicles can be physically taxing at the best of times, it can be especially so in the warmer months. Industrial cooling fans can make the heat more tolerable, and keep a better flow of fresh air on you. Also, with all the fumes from exhausts, oil and cleaning fluid, there is a real need to remove the stale air.


It may seem like an odd place to find cooling fans; but in places where there are delicate items and artifacts, you need to make sure you don’t cause damage. A portable ventilation fan can be a useful way to provide airflow during the summer. Our MB range feature variable speed control so they can be adjusted to keep the sound down.
