ORLANDO, Fla. — After more than 100 years in the ceiling fan industry, Hunter Fan Co. announced it is expanding into the industrial and commercial market, launching a new division of its business, Hunter Industrial. The debut product from Hunter is the TITAN Industrial Fan, a high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fan debuting at the 2016 AHR Expo in Orlando. The TITAN fan comes in five different blade spans ranging 14-24 feet. With a diameter of 288 inches, the TITAN 24 was one the largest operating fans on display at this year’s AHR Expo.

Hunter said it created the TITAN fan with a commitment to deliver the most efficient total cost of ownership.

“Here at Hunter, we are experts at ceiling fans. We invented the first ceiling fans in the late 1800s and are now bringing a superior product to the industrial market,” said John Alexander, CEO of Hunter. “Our strong expertise and track record for innovation should allow our brand to perform well in the industrial and commercial segments.”

The TITAN’s direct-drive electronically-commuted motor (ECM) allows for an efficient, lightweight product. It can be lifted by just one installer with no additional lift equipment required. The lubricated bearings are “lubricated for life,” meaning the fan requires less maintenance and has a longer life. Its touchscreen user interface allows users to integrate to their building management system (BMS) through industry-standard protocols. The TITAN’s design also features fewer fan blades, which generate airflow with better aerodynamics.

First deliveries of the industrial fan are expected to occur in April 2016. For more information, visit http://industrial.hunterfan.com.
