Ventilation Fan for Remodeling
Your review: This fan is powerful and has worked well during my renovation.
Pros: Smooth, No Mechanical Issues, Easy to Setup, Trunk long enough to tackle any job.
Cons: Do not like the start switch, there is a piece of metal that gets in the way, I am sure it is some sort of safety device, but I don't like it.
Your review: works great we use it in our screen printing shop to pull hot air from our dryer.
Pros: really like the 32 foot ducting long enough to set at our backdoor to send out the hot air very durable fan runs 5 days a week with no issues.
Cons: the little rubber feet could be a little more beefy.
Good so far
Your review: We've only had the unit for a short time, so we don't know much about the endurance, but initial usage has been good so far.
Pros: Light weight for size, relatively inexpensive.
Cons: Wonder how long a couple of the components will last (i.e hose strap, handle).
global portable fan 12in
Your review: Seems to work pretty well. However, the on/ off switch seems flimsy at best. Hope it works over time.
Pros: Good movement of air, small footprint and decent weight.
Cons: Wish it had a velcro strap instead of rope pull string. Hard to get tight enough. Toggle on/ off switch seems like it won't last long.
Your review: God , I wish I got this 4 years ago! The dust and paint control is amazing .. This will pay for it self. We bought some HVAC filters to put in front of the fan when spaying cabinets
Pros: Super strong and works great
Cons: Its a bit loud but thats what your going to get with the power . I would rather have more noise and power than less power. For small jobs we reverses it and put the motor outside and tube inside for less noise works great!

Your review: A great investment
Pros: I had to demo my basement bathroom. This task required the removal of all drywall, the use of a demolition hammer to remove ceramic tile off a cement floor and grinding this floor with a cup wheel to remove the thinset. A task of this nature creates a massive amount of fine airborne dust. This fan created such negative pressure that none of the dust escaped out of the room. The flexible ducting is heavy and well made, very tear resistant. The fan is powerful however on the loud side for noise. Most definitely a must have for in house construction.
Your review: I refinish bathtubs and need high volume ventilation of dust and fumes. This ventilator is lightweight, powerful, and does a fantastic job of keeping the air clear in the work space.
Pros: Light weight, easy to store and carry, very efficient at moving air, easy to position in tight spaces.
Cons: Ducting can be a little awkward to attach with just the provided rope. I use a bungee cord to secure the ducting to the blower.
Why did they put a GFI on this bower?
Your review: The Fan is awesome in construction and power plus the price is sweet. But then they just had to put a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) on it. The dam thing trips every time it's plugged in. This is not a piece of equipment that one needs to worry about being electrocuted by. It's just a pain having to reset it every time and I worry if the GFI is going to fail on a job causing set backs. This is the first blower of 12 that I'm going to need for my crew. I will probable need to cut off the GFI and replace it will a straight plug. Just wish stuff could come out the box with out having (fix it) also the toggle switch for on and off feels a little flimsy. If the manufacture reads this kill the GFI and install a Heavy Duty Power Switch and this product would rock...Yes I feel better now getting that off my chest.
Great fan good price
Your review: This fan and duct combo performs as advertised. The flexible duct is strong and well-built I would definitely buy again at this price. The fan moves a lot of air. The duct can be placed at either end of the fan so you can put the fan outside to reduce noise during exhaust operations if you need to.
Your review: I have used this ventilator to remove dust and fumes from a couple of jobs now. It does a great job. The one concern I have is the noise level. Break out the hearing protection. We were running a break hammer and a concrete saw on one job site and I think this fan was louder then either of those tools. Use the fan but BRING HEARING PROTECTION!

Can this motor be controlled by a VFD?
Question Asked By: Christopher , June 14, 2018
I live in condo with 26' high cathedral ceiling. Want to run 32'duct to top of ceiling to exhaust the hot air outside. Total space is approx. 9000 cu. ft. A couple questions: 1. What fan size is appropriate to exhaust this space (8" vs 12")? 2. What is the sound level of these fans (8" vs 12"). Is is appropriate for condo with shared walls?

Hello John, We do not think this fan would be a good fit for your application. This would be very loud. We recommend getting an in-line fan or a roof mount fan, at 680 or 690 CFM which is about 66Db. Any louder then that and you neighbors will most likely complain. I've included the links to the in-line and roof mount fans: http://www.globalindustrial.com/c/hvac/exhaust-fans/in-line-duct-fans http://www.globalindustrial.com/c/hvac/exhaust-fans/roof-ventilators We do suggest you contact a local HVAC contractor and speak with them regarding this they may have a better insight. Thank you for your interest in our product!
Question Asked By: anonymous
The duct shows a temperature rating up to 180 degrees F but the fan does not mention a rating. There was a similar unit rated to only 120 degrees. Can you confirm the maximum temperature this fan can move?The Operating temperature range for the fan is 32 - 104 degrees F
Question Asked By: Ken , December 13, 2017
Does this exhaust fan have a sealed motor, safe for exhausting paint fumes?
