Industrial barrel fans, sometimes called drum fans, provide ideal temperature control in large rooms or areas of a warehouse. They are typically direct, or belt driven to reduce power consumption and noise pollution. Some are on wheels to make moving from place to place easier, and some can be tilted to direct air flow to specific spots. Manufacturing facilities can use industrial barrel fans to create a safer work environment for workers. They can help create the proper ventilation, that removes lingering odors, pollutants, and smoke. Aside from proper ventilation barrel fans can help protect industrial environments from overheating, mold buildup, and product deterioration.
Air cannons are high-velocity industrial fans which can be either free-standing or stationary, depending on your needs. With motors operating at numerous horsepower, air cannons can blow cool air over long distances and are a great addition to any warehouse. Air cannons have many benefits and can be used in a wide variety of industries as it’s a cost-effective way to circulate air. Most air cannons from ASI include ceiling mount brackets for your convenience.
Pedestal fans and wall-mounted fans offer a more moderate amount of air flow than barrel fans or air cannons. Pedestal fans are smaller and convenient to move from room to room, are completely adjustable, and some even oscillate to vary direction of air flow. Wall mounted fans can also be tilted to adjust air flow, and they easily affix to walls to reduce risk from having electrical cords on the floor and to be less obstructive than a large profile fan.

Applications & Types of Warehouse Fans
Warehouse fans are an essential component of many industrial and commercial settings, helping to circulate air and maintain consistent temperatures throughout large spaces. There are several different types of warehouse fans available on the market, each designed to suit different applications and environments.
One of the most common types of warehouse fans is the high-volume low-speed (HVLS) fan. HVLS fans are designed to move large volumes of air at low speeds, making them an ideal solution for large industrial spaces. They can be mounted on ceilings or walls and can be controlled using remote controls or wall-mounted switches. HVLS fans are available in a range of sizes and configurations, making them suitable for a variety of different applications.
Another popular type of warehouse fan is the directional fan. Directional fans are designed to move air in a specific direction, making them ideal for targeted ventilation and cooling applications. They are available in a range of sizes and styles, including wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, and portable models.
In addition to these types of warehouse fans, there are also specialized fans designed for specific applications. For example, explosion-proof fans are designed for use in hazardous environments where there is a risk of fire or explosion. These fans are built to withstand high temperatures and are designed to prevent sparks or other ignition sources from being generated.
Overall, warehouse fans are an essential component of many industrial and commercial settings, helping to improve air circulation, reduce humidity levels, and maintain consistent temperatures throughout large spaces. By choosing the right type of warehouse fan for your specific application, you can ensure optimal performance and energy efficiency, leading to lower operating costs and a more comfortable working environment for employees.
