Used in Warehouses, Industrial Buildings and Other Commercial Properties.
Industrial ceiling fans are used to circulate air in large commercial buildings. They are particularly useful in warehouses and manufacturing facilities that have high ceilings. Most industrial ceiling fans have metal or hard plastic blades and spin at very high RPMs. Because of the high velocity at which they spin, they must be installed at least 10 feet from the ground and are not considered safe for residential applications. Industrial fans are also used to draw the heat down from the ceiling and are often referred to as heat fans. The Emerson industrial ceiling fan models that have the K55 motors will last the longest and have the best performance.

Although the EPA now requires fan manufacturers to publish the CFM ratings of their fans, there is no standardized scientific method of determining what size and CFM fan is best for any given application. A few quick searches and you will find that each ceiling fan manufacturer interprets this differently. So we created our own size and CFM recommendation chart to give you an idea what we recommend for "typical" applications. We produced this chart based on over 20 years of experience dealing with ceiling fans and the people who we've sold them to. For the most part, this chart will suffice. If you have low ceilings, you can fudge a little on the CFM and use a fan in the lesser range of the room size. If you have high ceilings, you need more CFM and a fan closer to the larger size of the chart. In most cases, the more the CFM the better and the higher the quality score the better!
