SCEGGS facility manager Keith Stevenson approached Airius to help address severe over- heating problems in their 1,000m² multi-purpose Basketball Court facility.
The basketball courts were in a room 10 metres high with a concrete ceiling. Tennis courts were located on the floor above, which contributed to the over-heating.
8 Standard Airius Model 60 units were supplied with two five Amp (SC-05) Speed Controllers, for an installed cost 20% cheaper than blade fans, whilst also providing greater floor coverage.
As a bonus the units were adjustable in any direction. This allowed SCEGGS to direct the air flow to where it was needed, but without causing interference to activities such as badminton, where normally the airflow from alternative fans would impact on the flight of the shuttlecock.
The improvement in comfort inside the space was instant and they indicated that even on the warmest summer days the air movement offered cooling and made the space much more comfortable and usable.
