Kelley Launches the WAVE™ – Next Generation HVLS Fan Moves More Air For Less

(Carrollton, TX) – Kelley has unveiled the WAVE™, a new HVLS fan design featuring advanced technology and design elements to distribute more air while using less energy than other  HVLS fans. It is the most significant innovation that the market has seen in years and is set to advance HVLS technology through its highly intelligent controls, increased airflow and superior energy efficiency.

The Kelley WAVE features an optimized five (5) blade profile which translates to greater airflow all while conserving energy consumption. The Kelley brand has been the leader in the material handling/warehouse marketplace for over 60 years and continues its innovative legacy by revolutionizing the HVLS industry. The WAVE offers improved controls technology to meet customers’ unique needs, and a refined airfoil shape resulting in less drag which equates to greater circulation and employee comfort.  And its sophisticated frame cover adds to the aesthetics of both industrial and commercial spaces.

“Kelley HVLS technology is widely praised as being the most energy efficient, offering customers the best HVLS experience through intelligent controls and superior performance, but it just got even better,” said Dan Linder, Kelley HVLS Sales Manager. “Customers asked and we answered with the Kelley WAVE.”

The Kelley WAVE produces a massive, cylindrical column of air that flows down to the floor and outward in all directions, creating a horizontal floor jet that consistently circulates air in large spaces. This “horizontal floor jet” pushes air a greater distance before it is pulled back vertically toward the blades. The greater the down flow, the greater the air circulation and resulting benefits.  In the colder months, fans can be run in reverse to circulate the hot air trapped at ceiling level, known as “destratification”.

Kelley WAVE fans don’t just move air, they circulate efficiency and create a more even temperature, which in turn protects product integrity, avoids potential spoilage and increases employee comfort. And the even coverage provided by the WAVE fan also works to reduce moisture in the air, keeping floors drier and safer for your employees.
