Cisco-Eagle and Big Ass Fans Announce Distribution Partnership
The leader in HVLS fans and LED lighting now available from Cisco-Eagle
We’re pleased to announce Cisco-Eagle has partnered with Big Ass Fans, makers of the world’s leading HVLS (high-volume, low-speed) fans, innovative direct fans and LED lighting systems.
The partnership between two of the leaders in their industries is natural. Big Ass Fans is an iconic, innovative brand for HVLS fans, directional fans and lighting systems. Cisco-Eagle has deep roots in distribution, warehousing and manufacturing, where large, high-ceiling facilities are almost always in need of ways to keep workers more comfortable and productive.
“Our customers have been asking us to help with storage, movement and handling issues for decades,” said Cisco-Eagle president Darein Gandall. “They also want help with safety, ergonomic and environmental needs in recent years. Big Ass Fans is ideal for so many of our clients looking to retain employees more effectively, create better working conditions and improve productivity.”
Cisco-Eagle is a leading provider of safer, better ways to operate industrial facilities. We partner with leading companies like Big Ass Fans to provide the most advanced solutions for companies looking to improve their work environments. “We provide everything in a warehouse from conveyors to dock equipment to racks — and now, the industry leader in fans,” Gandall said. “With our home base in hot states like Texas and our reach into the entire country, it’s a great opportunity to add value for our customers.”
How HVLS fans work
If you aren’t familiar with HVLS fans, the key thing to understand is that they are probably the most economical way to make a hot facility more comfortable.
The slow-moving air produced by HVLS fans breaks up the moisture-saturated layer that surrounds people’s bodies. This accelerates evaporation and produces a perceived cooling effect of up to ten degrees (F). It isn’t different from a nice breeze on a hot day, except it is constant.
“In today’s difficult labor market, retaining employees is a top priority for our customers,” Gandall added. “HVLS fans are an effective and economical way to keep people more comfortable, and less likely to jump to another company.”
Energy savings and efficiency are baked in
Facilities with air conditioning can improve with ceiling fans, which can significantly reduce HVAC bills in both the summer and winter due to the temperature destratification effect of HVLS fans. Paired with tax incentives, this makes for a very short term ROI on these systems.
The partnership also includes Big Ass Fans’ innovative line of direct fans, which can be mounted on pedestals, on walls and many other places, as well as the company’s full line of elite LED lighting solutions. For more information, contact us today.
