about us

Our History and Evolution
Airius Fans has a rich heritage rooted in innovation and quality, tracing its origins back to 1963 with the founding of Avedon Engineering. As one of the largest premier custom injection molders in the Western United States, Avedon Engineering set the foundation for a future of pioneering advancements in destratification technology.
The Birth of Airius
In the early 2000s, as injection molding transitioned offshore, Ray Avedon began developing the first Airius Fan—the Air Pear. This marked the beginning of a new era in air circulation solutions. Airius LLC was officially founded in 2004, bringing the original Air Pear to market and introducing a groundbreaking solution for enhancing air circulation in various environments.

We look forward to continuing our journey, driven by the same principles of excellence and innovation that have defined us since our inception.
PATENT INFORMATION
  1. Multi-Vane Stator Technology:
    This technology creates a slow-moving column of air that increases the throw distance, balancing temperatures throughout space. The stator vanes eliminate rotational air flows and create columnar laminar air flows, leading to increased air flow velocities and significantly enhanced vertical (ceiling to floor) throw distances.

  2. Venturi Nozzles:
    Combined with the stator vanes, the Venturi nozzles further increase air flow velocities, throw distances and secondary air entrainment. This design allows Airius fans to effectively destratify conditioned spaces with high ceilings by throwing warm air from the ceiling to the floor.

  3. Side Intake Bypass:
    A secondary inlet allows additional air to be entrained into the primary flow path for maximizing air volume through the fan discharge.

  4. Needle Point Bipolar Ionization (NPBI™):
    Used in the PureAir Series, this patented technology inactivates pathogens, bacteria, molds, and odors, ensuring continuous active air purification.
