For 25 years, VENTRY Fans have placed an emphasis on safety, among its many benefits.
As the engineer responsible for VENTRY Safety Propellers, our CEO James Neils stood beside our largest gas powered VENTRY Fan model, directly in the debris path, while our colleague impaled it with a pike pole. The fan was at full RPM.
As designed, the impacted area of the VENTRY PPV Fan propeller disintegrated harmlessly into tiny wood chips, sawdust, and fabric. The unaffected portion of the prop remained intact and continued to move air. James and five onlookers were not hurt. Besides the prop itself, the fan was undamaged and returned to service in a few minutes after prop replacement.
VENTRY Safety Propellers are made in a proprietary process that pressure-bonds Kevlar® and fiberglass over a cedar core, making them very durable and robust as well as uniquely safe.
Testimonials on ventry.com show why this level of safety is essential. See www.ventry.com/fans/propellers.html for a powerful first-hand account of an experience that any fire fighter could encounter.
