Unlike oversized paddle fans which are typically installed behind cages in athletics facilities (often costing more than the unit itself!), Airius units do not need separate protective elements to prevent damage from sports equipment. Their smaller profile, without exposed fan blades, sturdy construction, and safety anchor point attached to the fan motor ensure that a wayward soccer ball or basketball poses no risk to the unit or the players underneath.
The use of Airius units means no;-
- Three phase power
- No light strobing issues
- No lighting redesign
- No yearly costly maintenance contracts
- No structural changes
- No distraction to audiences or sportspeople
- No dusty blades to clean
In addition to lowering energy costs and increasing safety and comfort of the athletics facility, Airius fans can be optionally fitted with a PHI unit to mitigate odours and kill mould and bacteria in locker rooms, potentially preventing the transmission of athlete’s foot and other contact and airborne infections.
