The i6® permanent-magnet motor, airfoil systems, and industrial style motor housing are designed exclusively by Big Ass Fans, while its patent-pending SenseMe™ technology and mobile app were developed in-house. We took all of the power and efficiency of our iconic industrial fans and created a smart fan that fits where you live, work, and play every day! Designed to create virtually silent airflow that is proven to feel 6°C cooler than the current room temperature, i6® features an array of automated controls and custom options, and an elegant design for all spaces. Aircraft-grade aluminium airfoils deliver comfort for years without corroding or sagging, while its extremely efficient motor is IPX5-rated for protection against dust and water, ensuring a long life of cooling airflow. i6® is rated IPX5 for protection against sprays, splashes, and low pressure jets of water. The fan motor and drive are fully covered, while its stainless-steel ball bearings resist corrosion caused by moisture and oxidation, making i6® suitable for indoor and outdoor use. A foam block in the motor shaft and sealed LED kit offer further protection from the elements in outdoor applications.
