The Airius Retail Series (Aisle) is designed for retail buildings and any space that requires an elongated column of air to maximise distribution down aisles and counters.
The benefits of destratification fans are well recognised within the retail industry and Airius has helped businesses all over the world reduce their energy costs and optimise comfort for customers and staff with an Airius destratification fan and airflow circulation system.
The Airius Aisle Retail Series destratification fan delivers and elongated airflow pattern and has been specially designed to cater for supermarket, grocery and convenience store applications, or any space using aisled configurations where airflow is unable to spread at floor level. The Aisle Retail Series is also suitable for behind counter spaces such as reception desks or warehouses using racking systems with no ground floor clearance.
Destratification fans from the Aisle Retail Series incorporate a unique nozzle system which delivers airflow in an elongated pattern, in comparison to the radial spread provided by other Airius destratification fan and airflow circulation systems. This maximises spread down aisles while minimising interference with open reach cases. It also improves efficiency of chiller and freezer cabinets by drawing away heat emitted from equipment and recycling it into the space, maintaining ideal temperatures.
The elongated airflow pattern supplied by the Aisle Retail Series destrat fan is also an effective cooling solution for counter areas during times of hot weather and can be angled to deliver airflow to specific locations if required.
Uncomfortable shoppers don’t browse for long. Some of the most affected retail environments are supermarket chiller and freezer aisles where cold spillage drops temperatures uncomfortably low. Conversely, temperatures can rise beyond comfortable limits in other areas of the store. Even air conditioning can result in hot and cold spots with areas receiving poor or no airflow circulation.
The Airius Retail Series destratification fan system eliminates these differentials by circulating all the air in the space, balancing temperatures and making conditions more comfortable throughout. Giants such as Morrisons, Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Halfords, New Look and Pets at Home to name but a few have benefited from installing Airius.
Destratification fans in the Retail Series range don’t just offer comfort and energy savings benefits. By continuously recirculating airflow with an Airius system cabinet and display glass is kept clear and mist free. Improved airflow across the glass increases the rate of moisture evaporation, which rapidly removes cabinet fogging and keeps products clearly on display.
This improved airflow also helps with spills and wet floors, drying out moisture and standing water far quicker than without Airius destratification and airflow circulation. Condensation is also reduced or eliminated, limiting mould growth and damage to paint or finishes, whilst also removing any unpleasant damp musky odours.
The Aisle Retail Series Destratification fan is designed to cater for aisled configurations up to 6m high and can be installed into open or exposed ceilings. The retail Series can also be installed into Suspended ceilings where the Airius Suspended Series is not suitable. Simple to install with an adaptable bail, the unit can be angled to deliver airflow to a specific area or location if required. Please note, when angled airflow throw distance increases.
Ideal for retail spaces such as large grocery stores, local convenience outlets or any space with an aisle configuration such as library’s, the Airius Aisle Retail Series destrat fan and airflow circulation system is the only destratification fan available to incorporate a unique elongated airflow pattern.
Destratification fan solutions such as box fans or HVLS fans can be very heavy, large units, requiring significant support from the roof or ceiling structure. This can make installations expensive and disruptive to normal operating activities, significantly impacting costs.
The Airius Aisle Retail Series destratification fan weighs only 5.2kgs, meaning installation doesn’t require extensive anchoring or supporting from the roof, which other types of destrat fan would require. You don’t require expensive hanging materials either, simple over the counter chains or cables rated to @26kgs are sufficient to hang and support the Standard Retail Series Destratification fan and airflow circulation system.
Airius internationally patented multi-vane stator technology transfers rotational energy to create a slow-moving column of air (columnar laminar flow), which increases throw distance. The column of air descends to floor level and through entrainment, circulates all the air in the space at the same speed, balancing temperatures to within 0°C – 2°C.
This uses very low levels of power, as it’s only pushing air through a very small space: the column. As the airflow doesn’t spread out, it doesn’t lose momentum. Then once it reaches floor level, the airflow blankets along the floor in all directions before rising and being re-circulated through the fan. This is a standard feature on all Airius fans and totally unique to Airius.

All Airius fan units come with options for variable speed control with the Airius 1 AMP, 5 AMP and EC wall mounted speed controllers. This allows you to customise your installation to gain maximum efficiency from your Airius system. Incorporating a classic and simple to use rotating dial face to adjust the speed, Airius speed controllers are easy to install and can be fitted in as little as 5 minutes.
Speed controls also allow you to take full advantage of the seasonal benefits of Airius destratification and airflow circulation fans, adapting to the change in temperatures. You can increase speeds during summer to benefit from airflow cooling, then slow things down to gently recirculate heat during the winter.
All Airius destratification fans come as off-white (Cool Gray C) as standard. But for those installations where colour and aesthetics are a factor Airius destratification fans can be RAL colour match painted to suit your unique application.
Simply specify your desired RAL colour code when you order and the units are process painted at our UK warehouse, quality checked and delivered to you in your bespoke colour. Depending upon the size of the order adding colour options can increase delivery time.
Airius destratification and airflow circulation fans are designed to operate 24/7, 365 days a year in order to maintain balanced temperatures. Simply install in place and leave to run quietly in the background and watch the savings rise.
But sometimes there are applications where that isn’t applicable or where buildings are unoccupied for periods of time. In these cases, Airius destratification fans can be installed on timers or integrated into a Buildings Management System (BMS). Airius fans can even be installed with wireless control offering the convenience and flexibility to control your system at the touch of a button from your wireless device.
Airius destratification and airflow circulation fans come with the option of both PSC (Permanent Split Capacitor) and EC (Electronically Commutated) fan motors. This gives the option for more efficient control in our larger EC motor units, but still offering the affordability and reliability in our range of PSC motors.
All our motors are supplied by the world’s leading fan motor manufacturer EBM Papst.
