SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF. — Ensuring superior product safety, performance and manufacturing standards, MacroAir AirVolution and AirSpan fan lines are now "UL Listed" – the only complete HVLS fan units to carry the designation from Underwriters Laboratories.
MacroAir is the only HVLS manufacturer to have an entire fan unit, including the motor, gearbox, variable frequency drives, fuses, fuse holders, disconnect switches and wires, certified by Underwriters Laboratories, an independent product safety testing organization, under its 507 Standard for electric fans.
"Having our AirVolution and AirSpan fans recognized by a third-party organization like Underwriters Laboratories provides customers confidence in the safety and performance of our products," said Eddie Boyd, president of MacroAir. "We have always held our team and partners to the highest standards of manufacturing, product quality and customer service, and we're proud the UL Listing reiterates this commitment to our current and future fan owners."
To receive a UL Listing, products are tested against Underwriters Laboratories' high safety standards, while manufacturing facilities and tools are also reviewed. MacroAir's manufacturing facility will be inspected quarterly to ensure that it complies with the 507 Standard, and all tools involved in the making of the AirVolution and AirSpan fan lines will be calibrated annually.
MacroAir manufactures five HVLS fan lines, available in diameters from 6- to 24-feet with six airfoil blades utilizing NASA-engineered wing design and the company's patented 6ixBlade™ technology. MacroAir HVLS fans are a proven solution for changing perceptible room temperature by 5 to 15 degrees, and lower heating and cooling costs by as much as 20 percent when used in conjunction with traditional HVAC equipment.
To help building owners and facility managers visualize the performance and cost-saving of a MacroAir fan, the company's advanced fluid dynamics modeling tool, AirViz, uses specs from a potential installation space to produce a 3D motion video that predicts the airflow, temperatures and cooling/heating effects from a MacroAir HVLS fan, represented by colored visual elements.

MacroAir engineers will be conducting AirViz simulations within the company's booth at MODEX 2014 (booth 919), a trade show for the manufacturing and supply chain industries.
