Manufacturing of an AC Fan used in an Athletic Facilities Application

AC Fan

With over 25 years of product development and manufacturing experience, Pelonis Technologies has built a reputation on quality products designed and fabricated by dedicated skillful engineers. Their dedication to quality can be seen in a variety of past and current projects. One of our recent projects was to manufacture an AC fan to be utilized in an athletic facilities application.

This organization's ongoing issue came from damp used athletic apparel were often left or stored in an open air locker – similar to the lockers that professional athletes use. The athletic facility needed air to be circulated from the bottom of this open style locker to the top in order to both dry the sweaty clothing, but also to remove any potential for mold and mildew build up.

Our engineers designed one fan to be mounted at the top and back of the locker to draw air inward. The other fan was mounted at the bottom and back of the locker. This fan blew air out of the locker. An air duct was built in behind the locker to provide air circulation.

With this Pelonis Technologies' solution, now this athletic team can leave sweaty equipment and clothing behind in their lockers. A locker room attendant simply flips on a master switch that operates all 240 fans. They are left running for approximately an hour in order to dry out the gear and eliminate odor and potential for mildew and mold.
