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.
