    Is this new? I have never seen any.

    I saw one of these for the first time today.
    I have talked to a few people today, and some have heard/seen this product, but I have not.
    What about you?

    It's a destratification fan. Been around for a few years. We use the Arius or AirPear I think they are called now. They actually work quite well in a warehouse type setting.

    They work great, unless the installing contractor doesn't mount it properly, and the whole fan assembly comes loose and falls 28 feet down onto the area where your shipping and receiving employees work...

    I have a customer that I recommended Big Ass Fans to that had that happen. Fortunately it happened over night, so no employees were present, just a bunch of expensive aircraft parts.
    The security video, and pictures of the aftermath, were horrifying in light of the fact that about 15 people work in the caged in area it fell into...

    The place now has a bunch of roll around VFD driven fans, no overhead fans.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    We have one in a garage bay that's every bit of 15' in diameter. It's pretty neat actually.....

    Wal-mart has 3 in the garden center here. They removed the logos from the fan hubs, but the control panels are labeled BA Fan 1, BA Fan 2... They work well but the drives are noisy -- that high pitched wine.

    I have a customer that has 17 BAF's. They work great, move a lot of air and are quite. I do an annual PM on them so there are no worries about them falling down.

    The Ikea store near me has some of these in their self serve warehouse area. I remember staring at them as I walked around the last time I was there. They even said "Big Ass Fan" right in the middle of them, which I thought was funny. I guess Ikea has more of a sense of humor/tolerance level than Wal-Mart does.

    Our local Grainger has one and it works great! I can see where proper mounting would be very important .

    Yeah, I've seen them in a home depot warehouse loading/unloading area not the store. Seem to work good.
