BAF Announces Powerfoil X Complete Redesign

Big Ass Fans has rebuilt the enormously successful Powerfoil X from the ground up — from the hub to the winglets . . .

Big Ass Fans doesn’t do anything small or quietly, but this is big, even for us! Beginning May 1, we’ll be launching a complete redesign of our industry-changing Powerfoil X—the Powerfoil X2.0.

This is more than just adding a few new features. This is a total remodel. We have rebuilt the enormously successful Powerfoil X from the ground up — from the hub to the winglets.

  • The redesigned airfoil system standard on the Powerfoil X2.0 combines a new airfoil profile and winglet with patented, Airfence™ technology. The winglet improves airflow by eliminating turbulence at the tip of our carefully designed airfoil, while the Airfence captures air that would otherwise slip off the end. This air traffic control increases overall coverage by 25%.
  • With new, completely enclosed electronics and a redesigned patented hub system, the Powerfoil X2.0 ensures even greater reliability and durability. Powerfoil X’s patented Stöber NitroSeal Drive™, the toughest gearbox the industrial world has to offer, remains with the Powerfoil X2.0, providing incredible, long-lasting and reliable operation.
  • We’re so confident about the engineering and design of the Powerfoil X2.0 that we back it all up with an unprecedented non-prorated 15-year warranty.

On top of the Powerfoil X2.0, after years of testing we have designed a fan specifically to meet the food industry’s needs. This fan is one-of-a-kind, and meets the tough standards needed in many food environments. No water pools; stainless steel and aluminum materials; food grade oil gearbox; IP56 – you name it, it goes above and beyond all the tough standards and allows us to provide comfort to those we may have been unable to in the past.
