Big Ass Fan Company® introduces the smashingly durable Yellow Jacket®

LEXINGTON, Ky., April 13, 2011 – The world’s biggest name in Big Fans introduces Yellow Jacket, the portable fan that takes abuse and stays in use. Five years in development, Yellow Jacket is designed for incredible flexibility and amazingly quiet operation, but most importantly, it’s so smashingly durable it will never need to be replaced. In fact, it’s guaranteed for life* because it’s engineered with all of the heavy-duty and operational characteristics that make it worthy of the Big Ass Fans name:

  • Heavy-gauge steel carriage engineered to withstand the harshest environments
  • Powerfoil-inspired blades for maximum efficiency and airflow coverage
  • Acoustically designed fan, motor and carriage for quiet operation
  • Oversized wheels and ergonomic handle for superior maneuverability
  • Multiple speeds and an easily operated locking position mechanism put the amount and direction of airflow at your control
  • High efficiency design to cut energy use by over 50%
  • Incredibly flexible with ceiling, wall, or multiple floor mounting options available

Yellow Jacket won’t crumble after a forklift love tap. How do we know? Watch one of our engineers attempt to challenge Yellow Jacket’s durability here.

Listening to customers and their needs, Big Ass Fans took a highly engineered, problem solving approach to address the endless repair-and-replace cycle of current fans and employed the air movement expertise for which all Big Ass Fans are known. The result is the most durable and quiet fan in its class – a fan good enough to be called a Big Ass Fan. To learn more about Yellow Jacket, visit or call 877-BIG FANS (877-244-3267).
