About Pedestal Fans

Industrial Pedestal Fans are designed with heavy bases, adjustable height posts, and longer fan blades. These cost-effective and adaptable fans have multiple speeds, so they can be changed depending on the current need. These fans prevent air stagnation in warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities. By circulating air, pedestal fans help to improve air quality. Aside from improving the air quality, these fans will save facility managers thousands of dollars each year in energy costs.

Pedestal fans are a fantastic solution for beating the heat in your warehouse or facility. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars every day to keep your warehouse air conditioned, pedestal fans offer a far more cost effecting means of temperature control. While they are designed for cooling down smaller-sized areas quickly, industrial pedestal fans can also be used to dry wet spots rapidly, and to keep sediment out of the air at work sites.

ASI offers pedestal fans at various heights, and most are even adjustable. Pedestal fans typically have three speeds to better deal with cooling concerns. When buying used from American Surplus you can shop with confidence. Every fan that leaves our warehouse is inspected and tested prior to shipping to ensure that only the highest quality used equipment makes its way to our customers. Contact a member of our sales staff today to learn which used pedestal fan is the right fit to your operation and call (800) 876-3736.
