Athletic Facilities

Airius is installed in athletic facilities around the world, from the local fitness club to professional sports stadiums. The steady, gentle flow of air from an Airius unit increases comfort for patrons and wicks sweat from the floor and equipment. Since temperatures can vary significantly from floor to ceiling in a stratified room, Airius sees particularly high adoption in facilities with bleachers, rock climbing gyms, and in locker rooms.

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.

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 odors and kill bacteria in locker rooms, potentially preventing the transmission of athlete’s foot and other contact and airborne infections.

What They’re Saying

“FYI, The destrat fans installed over the summer have had a huge; positive impact in terms of comfort. We have monitored this over several months and find them to be money well spent. Our ambient temperature is steady 68°-70° throughout gymnasium. We no longer make adjustments on a regular basis. The space is untouched and comfortable. Job well done.”

“The difference has been immediate and profound…you can really feel the air movement under the fans, despite the fact that they are 30 feet above you. My students are delighted.”

“I've taken a couple of snapshots at the temperature and in the gym the difference is about 1 to 1.5 degrees between the high and low thermostat. In the library, the difference is about 1 degree.”

“I would like to compliment your company on a fine product, the Thermal Equalizer. We use these fans for an indoor Rock Climbing Gym application in a 6,000 sq. ft warehouse with 30 foot ceilings. Rock Climbing Gyms present a unique challenge for ventilation and air circulation, because climbers at the top of the wall are hot from exerting themselves, and their partners on the ground are cold while standing still. Therefore we must reverse the natural temperature gradient in the space.

The AIRIUS Thermal Equalizer is perfect in this application for several reasons. First, they are strong fans which really move the warm air down to floor level. Second the fans are quiet, we use eight fans and you can barely hear them while running. Third, because of their compact size we can put them close to the climbing wall without the risk of a climber being struck by a moving fan blade. Fourth, they are energy efficient, and we save on air conditioning costs. Last but not least, they look nice!”
