Gymnasiums, health clubs, and other athletic facilities often have tall, open spaces that are notorious for holding moisture and condensation, but having ceiling fan designed for gyms can make a huge difference.
It’s recommended that gym humidity levels stay between 30 to 60 percent to prevent common problems like mold, fungi, respiratory infections, warped floors and more.
HVLS fans prevent this moisture, while keeping large crowds and athletes comfortable with very little noise disturbance, making them the ideal gym ceiling fans.
The University of Utah’s Ute Natatorium, for example, had an issue with chlorine odor coming from its six-lane training pool, eight-lane competitive pool and diving well. While they had previously used high-speed ceiling fans, the problem persisted since those fans could not run continuously and the odors filled the natatorium when the fans were off. With the installation of our HVLS fans, the air movement increased while lowering energy usage and the chloramine level readings came back significantly lower than with their high-speed counterparts.
