HARTFORD, Wis. — Broan-NuTone announced that it is traveling coast to coast on a 60-stop nationwide tour to see which contractors can install its ULTRA Ventilation Fan the fastest. The ULTRA Pro Challenge, which launched in Milwaukee in August and will conclude in November in California, gives contractors across the country hands-on experience with the fan, a bathroom ventilation product that installs up to 60 percent faster in retrofits and up to 20 percent faster in new construction, said the company.

“ULTRA Fans feature the fastest, easiest, most universal installation to save contractors time,” said Richard Palmersheim, group vice president, marketing, Broan-NuTone LLC. “There’s no better way to convince contractors of the benefits of this product than to let them install the fans themselves.”

Other benefits include quiet operation, energy efficiency, and humidity- or motion-sensing capabilities, the company said. The fans also help meet green building requirements and ventilation codes.

Contractors at each tour stop, including locations in major cities like Chicago, New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles, compete to install an ULTRA Fan in the quickest time. The events, open exclusively to contractors, are hosted by Broan-NuTone distributors.

The fastest contractor at each location receives a $500 Cabela’s gift certificate. At the conclusion of the ULTRA Pro Challenge, the eight contractors with the quickest times among the location winners will each win a trip for two to the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas in February 2014. The eight contractors will then compete at the show for a 2014 Ford F150 grand prize.
