Industrial floor fans sit near to the ground to avoid toppling over, even when bumped, while generating a forceful jet of air at floor level. These air circulators are frequently used in manufacturing plants, warehouses, and shipping operations for spot cooling workstations or production lines, as well as for general cooling. These axial fans include a powerful motor that powers the fan blades to move enormous volumes of air and feature high-performance bearings for a long life. They are made of heavy-gauge materials appropriate for daily usage. The fan blades are encased in a guard to protect them from damage and injury caused by inadvertent contact. Because mobile floor fans are on wheels, they may be moved from one location to another as cooling requirements vary. Stationary floor fans are utilized in applications where fans do not need to be moved regularly but are light enough to transport between places.
