Frequently asked questions

What does a changeover to HyBlade® fans deliver in terms of daily operations?

HyBlade® technology is characterised primarily by lighter weight and greater flexibility in terms of blade geometry. These factors lead to great efficiency and improved noise emission characteristics. In this respect it is now much easier to adapt the shape of a blade to suit its individual operational requirements. The vast improvement in environmental footprint is a welcome fringe benefit obtained at zero additional cost.

How easy is it to make the changeover from conventional fans to HyBlade® fans?

New fans with HyBlade® technology have the usual market sizes, dimensions and mounting options. This means that they are technically fully compatible and this makes the changeover process hassle-free. Indeed, the reduced weight of individual items of equipment actually makes this changeover job a great deal easier for your operational staff.
