Garages and workshops have unique ventilation needs because of the inherent air pollution hazards, like dust accumulation, exhaust fumes and heat and humidity. Without efficient ways to vent fumes and exhaust gases and add fresh air into the space, the indoor air pollution can quickly become toxic. Here at Industrial Fans Direct, we supply many different types of ventilation equipment so that you can install the best mechanical ventilation system for your space.
Garage and Workshop Air Pollution Hazards
Air pollution in garages and workshops is extremely hazardous, depending on the operations being performed in the building. For example, if woodworking or metal working occurs in the space, both of those processes tend to create a lot of dust and wood and metal shards that can become airborne and get sucked into other equipment or accidentally inhaled. Welding operations can create fumes that are so toxic they cause dizziness, and nose, eye and throat irritation. Long-term exposure to welding fumes can cause lung damage. Running machines and equipment that burn fossil fuels can result in an excessive amount of carbon monoxide, which is colorless, odorless and lethal. Not to mention, garages and workshops do not tend to be well insulated. This means that they tend to be either too hot and humid or too cold, which can be dangerous for your employees as well as lead to a loss of productivity. Thankfully, all of these hazards can be corrected with industrial mechanical ventilation.
Types of Industrial Fans for Workshops and Garages
Industrial fans and portable heating and cooling equipment can help eliminate indoor health hazards associated with excessive amounts of dust and particulate matter and unfavorable indoor temperatures. We offer a wide variety of mechanical ventilation options from evaporative coolers and portable heaters to dust collections and exhaust fans.
Dust collectors are essential in garages and workshops. Sawing, grinding and sanding operations can create massive amounts of dust and debris in a very short amount of time. Our dust collectors are designed to remove dust almost as fast as it is produced. We offer stationary dust collectors that can be installed directly over the dust producing workstation, and we offer portable dust collectors that can quickly remove dust off adjacent surfaces and floors so that you can have a dust-free environment. Our dust collectors have CFMs up to 2,500.
Heaters and Evaporative Cooling Fans
Climate control is another concern for garages and workshops. These buildings do not tend to contain a lot of insulation, making them susceptible to drafts that can allow outdoor air into the building. Our evaporative cooling fans and portable heaters can help keep indoor temperatures within comfortable ranges. Evaporative cooling fans work by passing ambient air over a reservoir of water, which lowers the temperature of the air. Our evaporative cooling fans have the ability to move between 501 and 40,000 cubic feet of air per minute, and cool the surrounding area by as much as 25%.
In the late fall, winter and early spring, it is important to have supplemental heat in your garage or workshop in order to ensure the inside air temperature is optimized for human comfort. We offer many different types of portable heaters from forced air heaters to cabinet heaters and Salamanders so that you can get the heat right where you need it. Our heaters have the ability to move up to 800 cubic feet of air per minute.
Exhaust and Supply Fans
Keeping fumes, exhaust gases and heat and humidity in check requires the use of well-placed exhaust and ventilation fans. Exhaust fans help vent stuffy, stale, fume and exhaust gas laden air to the outdoors while supply fans help bring fresh, outdoor air into the building. We offer shutter wall mounted exhaust fans, filtered exhaust fans, filtered wall supply fans and multi-purpose inline duct fans with CFMs ranging from less than 500 to 55,000. For those areas that require hazardous location equipment to be installed due to flammable gases, fumes or dust in the atmosphere, we offer explosion proof cabinet mounted exhaust fans, and explosion proof shutter mounted exhaust fans.
Keeping the air circulating with one or more pedestal fans can help move stale air to areas where it can be vented outside via exhaust fans, and they can help keep your employees cool and comfortable even when you have multiple pieces of heat producing equipment running and the air outside is hot and humid. Our pedestal fans have CFMs ranging from 2,501 to 15,000.
Portable Drum and Barrel Fans
Portable drum and barrel fans are perfect when you need to move air quickly out of an area of your garage or workshop due to excessive fumes and/or exhaust gases. They can also help dry floors quickly after mopping or a spill. These fans come with long electrical cords and wheels for easy movement between locations, and they have the ability to move between 2,501 and 40,000 cubic feet of air per minute.
When you need improved airflow over a specific workstation or area of your garage or workshop, you can count on our workstation fans to get the job done. Our workstation fans can be mounted to ceilings and walls and have CFMs up to 55,000, which is perfect for keeping your employees and equipment cool and well ventilated.
Our utility fans are designed to quickly improve air circulation in order to reduce dangerous heat and humidity that can make your indoor environment extremely uncomfortable and lead to certain heat-related illnesses. Our blower fans are designed to help remove dust and wood and metal splinters as well as exhaust gases so that you can increase the safety of your indoor environment. Utility fans and blowers have CFMs up to 55,000.
