Gadget: Energy-Efficient and Guaranteed-For-Life Fans
EP Editorial Staff | May 17, 2011
Big Ass Fans’ new portable Yellow Jacket fan takes abuse and stays in use. Five years in development, it’s been designed for flexibility, quiet operation and, according to the company, to be “smashingly durable” (It’s guaranteed for life.*) The manufacturer notes that the Yellow Jacket’s heavy-gauge steel carriage withstands the harshest environments; its powerfoil-inspired blades provide maximum efficiency and airflow coverage (cutting energy use by over 50%); oversized wheels and an ergonomic handle offer superior maneuverability; multiple speeds and an easily operated locking position mechanism put the amount and direction of airflow under user control. Ceiling-, wall- and floor-mounting options are available.
