  • LEXINGTON, KY - Heat beware! Big Ass Fans has a new line of evaporative coolers ready to attack and defeat stifling, stagnant air.


    Cold Front by Big Ass Fans brings a full range of customer options for use in spaces of all sizes and applications, delivering a dramatic temperature reduction up to 33 °F (18 °C). 


    Capable of covering up to 6,500 square feet (600 square meters), the Cold Front lineup (pictured above) allows owners to cool at a fraction of the cost of air conditioning, plus take comfort outside and on the go with ease. 

    Featuring a thicker, more durable, chemically treated media coated in a thermosetting resin compared to similar products, Cold Front units are able to:

    • Resist algae and mold growth

    • Hold up to frequent cleanings and abuse

    • Prevent dirt and other particles from penetrating into the substrate


    With Cold Front’s variable-speed controls, maintaining the perfect temperature is as simple as turning a dial. Designed for convenience, all Cold Front models feature locking swivel casters, automatic low-water shutoff, and an easily accessible drain plug, while the largest model (second picture above) adds a backlit LCD display, premium remote, occupancy sensor for hands-free operation, and an auto-dry function to maximize media lifespan and keep the cooler in peak condition.

  • (Lexington, Ky.) - Built to deliver mobile comfort to virtually any space, Sidekick is your facility’s best choice for immediate airflow on the go. Its six-blade design and permanent-magnet motor move more air than any barrel fan on the market with class-leading energy efficiency and the quietest sound level.

    Lightweight and impact-resistant, Sidekick offers optimum maneuverability with two locking swivel casters, a large handle, and convenient 12-foot power cord. At 4 feet wide, Sidekick is sized just right for the power you need and easy to store when not in use.

    Sidekick’s permanent-magnet motor moves more air at nearly double the efficiency of its closest competitor. With a magnetron core, it also runs cooler than induction or belt-driven motors, ensuring a long life of peak performance.

    • Smaller, lighter, and more powerful than any other fan motor in its class
    • Brushless DC motor design further reduces friction and energy loss
    • 100% passive cooling keeps operating temperature low and efficiency high


    Sidekick’s smooth, quiet operation is no accident. We engineered the fan with a vented shroud to reduce noise, and its six-blade design provides consistent airflow with none of the choppy sound common to three-bladed fans.


    Features such as a patented airfoil system, variable speed direct-drive motor, and impact-resistant frame are what set Sidekick apart from the barrel fans of yesteryear.

    • Sleek, durable reinforced nylon airfoils
    • Fully adjustable variable speed control dial
    • OSHA-compliant steel screen and HDPE shroud


    Versatile? That’s Sidekick’s middle name. Its convenient 4-foot diameter fits easily through standard interior doorways, while its four locking swivel casters and 12-foot power cord make cooling airflow quick and convenient anywhere in your space.
