“Saint Stephen’s College is a co-educational, Preparatory to Year 12 independent school at the Gold Coast in Queensland. We have a large multipurpose sports centre housing 2 basketball courts. The floor area of the hall is around 1300 square metres and the roof is approximately 9 -10 metres high. This space is used for Physical Education, basketball games, exams and school assemblies.
On hot days, the auditorium air was still, lacked air flow throughout the space and created issues for all those participating in physical education classes and sporting activities in the building.
We considered using large fans to solve this problem. However, we decided to use Airius Standard Series Model 60 PS4 units for their perceived effectiveness, appearance and competitive pricing. 12 of the Standard Series Fans were installed, equally spaced around the hall with two speed controllers.
The units were suspended off the roof structure and were easy and quick to install.
The Airius fans have proved to be effective and do not dominate the space but fit easily into the hall; they are almost not noticeable whilst moving the air around the hall, creating air flow on hot, still days making the hall more comfortable to teach and learn in.“
