Start to Plan for HVLS Fans in Your Warehouse

As the Copywriter at MacroAir I am responsible for developing editorial material you might enjoy. How do I accomplish that you ask?  I put a lot of effort into planning what I am going to write about. Getting the most value out of high volume, low speed (HVLS) fans for your warehouse is similar. It’s all about how you plan for it. With help from MacroAir team member Kamel Zeidan, we will go over factors to consider when planning for HVLS fans.

Work is Better With a Breeze 

There are many factors to consider when planning for operations in your warehouse. Employee comfort is among the biggest concerns. A Warehouse Operations Manager from a facility that initially did not use MacroAir HVLS fans stated his teammates concerns:

“Our teammates complained about the building being hot and not feeling comfortable.” – Director of Distribution Operations

If an industrial facility’s environment is too hot, cold, wet (sweating slab syndrome), stale or dry, the workforce will likely be much less comfortable and much less productive.

When planning operations for your warehouse, no matter the size of your facility you should always consider your biggest asset. You should always consider the people that are working in the space day-to-day. The productivity and overall wellness of these hard working employees is dependent on the type of environment they are in.
