Hartzell Air Movement has broken ground on a construction project that will allow the production of fans with centrifugal wheel widths of up to 89 inches in all materials of construction. Called the High Bay Project, it will add 30,000 square feet of manufacturing space to Hartzell’s Piqua operations.
In an effort to better communicate its position as a leader in the high volume low speed (HVLS) fan industry, MacroAir announced that it has transformed its company brand identity and launched a new website.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Panasonic Home & Environment Co. with a 2012 Energy Star® Sustained Excellence Award in recognition of its continued leadership in manufacturing energy efficient ventilation fans.
Featured in an updated 24-page catalog are the manufacturer’s Model SP and CSP centrifugal ceiling and cabinet exhaust fans, designed for clean air applications requiring low sound levels. AMCA-certified and Energy Star-rated fan models are highlighted, along with new grilles and lighted grille lens options.
Direct drive wall fans are designed for compact and cost-effective through-the-wall general ventilation applications. These multispeed axial fans feature aluminum fan blades and a plated steel wire guard in sizes ranging from 10 to 30 inches.
Hartzell has announced the appointment of Sean Steimle as the new president of its Hartzell Air Movement business. He joins Hartzell after more than 13 years in the air moving industry. Steimle will report to Jeff Bannister, Hartzell CEO.
Many homeowners dealing with winter roof ice dams or summer high attic temperature problems due to inadequate attic ventilation now have the option of adding booster fans under existing roof vents instead of cutting additional holes in their roofs to install attic ventilation fans, the manufacturer says.
