Which HVLS Fan is Right for You?

High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans are ideal for industrial and commercial buildings with high ceilings and for spaces larger than 30,000 square feet — and, yes, you have options!

Loc8 offers a suite of options and customizable add-ons to meet your specific needs. Our fan models include the Revolution Fan Series, which features a 4-blade geared motor fan and three 3-blade fans powered by direct drive technology. Not sure which fan is right for you? We’re here to help.

The Original Revolution HVLS Fan

This is Rite-Hite’s original HVLS fan and a straightforward choice for cost efficient climate control. It’s an impactful upgrade for older facilities or an economic, green choice for newer facilities. Blade diameters range from 8 feet to 24 feet and just one 24’ fan can cool an area up to 31,000 square feet.

Where do we recommend you use this fan?

Customers use this fan in distribution centers, warehouses and manufacturing plants — any large facility with high ceilings.

Revolution 150 and 75 Series Fans

These HVLS fans are a step above traditional ceiling fans because of their direct drive technology. This allows Revolution 150 and 75 Series Fans to deliver the same cooling power, but without a geared motor or gearbox area.

The result? An extremely quiet industrial fan that functions without the use of any oil.

Where do we recommend you use this fan?

This fan was designed with installation simplicity in mind, so it’s very versatile across applications. Fans are pre-wired, factory configured for each application, and cooling begins almost immediately with standard wireless controls. Customers have deployed the Revolution® 150 and 75 Series Fan across a number of industries, from large manufacturing and warehouse facilities to arenas, convention centers, and large retail spaces.

Revolution 25 Series Fan

This is the smallest model of our direct drive fan options and blade diameters range from 6 to 12 feet. In addition to the benefits that come with quiet, direct drive motors, this stylish fan design is suitable for any commercial or public space.

Where do we recommend you use this fan?

  • Health Clubs
