Commercial Ventilation with Solar Whiz

Solar Whiz’s Commercial Warehouse Ventilation & Industrial Ventilation is the new benchmark for heat extraction!

When heat gathers in your commercial or industrial property, it quickly becomes uncomfortable. Even in large-scale properties such as warehouses particularly feel the immense heat in summer, as insulation can be expensive, and difficult to install on such a scale. It’s well-documented that poor air quality or uncomfortable heat reduces productivity, and can even pose a risk to stock in warehouses. Even worse, it can even cause heat illness if employees are exposed to high heat levels for too long.

Conventional roof whirlybirds only move around 100 m³/h (cubic metres of air per hour). To effectively ventilate a warehouse so that the interior temperature is near to the ambient temperature outside, you would need an absurd amount of whirlybirds. In terms of industrial ventilation, this isn’t an effective solution.

Solar Ventilation – Taking Industrial Ventilation to New Heights!

“Our workshop is roughly 11,000 cubic metres and has recently had eight SW-RAF10000 units installed primarily to improve the air quality in our 32 vehicle bays. Since installation, our technicians have all reported a significant improvement in airflow and a reduction in workshop fumes. As we are in the tropics, even in winter the units run at full capacity for around 9 hours a day and during this period a slight breeze can be felt throughout the shop. We are waiting the return of summer in order to measure the anticipated reduction in temperatures within the workshop.”

An Effective Commercial Warehouse Ventilation Solution

Solar Whiz Commercial comes in two distinct sizes: 


ModelSW-RAF10000SW-RAF7000
Capacity10,000 m³/h7,000 m³/h
Fan Motor10-26 Volt DC Brushless motor with double shielded ball bearings
Fan Decibels70 dBA68 dBA

the RAF in our Solar Whiz units stands for ‘Real Air Flow’. This stands for the capacity of air that each Solar Whiz is capable of moving. The SW-RAF10000 for example is easily able to extract 10000 m³/h of air with a single unit. Depending on the type of commercial property you have, you may only need a few Solar Whiz units to adequately ventilate your roof space!

Commercial Warehouse Ventilation

If you have a warehouse, in many cases it may be vital to keep the entire warehouse space well-ventilated. Many products can be damaged by excessive heat, which makes warehouse storage in hot climates especially difficult. Investing in industrial air-conditioning units will keep the space cooled, but will be absurdly expensive to run. Purchasing conventional rotary-style industrial whirlybirds can also help, though results show that these old designs are incapable of moving enough air on their own. On top of that, you would need to purchase many whirlybirds to adequately ventilate an entire warehouse.

Solar Whiz Commercial gives you powerful solar ventilation. They operate purely with the power of the sun, and can be wired to run overnight via a night operations kit. Conventional wind-driven turbines rely on the expansion of air to work—such as air being heated. Why let the air inside your warehouse warm up in the first place? Commercial warehouse ventilation is no struggle for Solar Whiz.

Solar Extraction & Industrial Ventilation

We’ve had customers install Solar Whiz industrial ventilators to exhaust and extract dust and fumes from their properties. The raw power of a Commercial Solar Whiz is able to keep toxic or unwanted fumes out of the industrial workspace, such as factories or chemical storage. Even commercial kitchens can benefit from Solar Whiz. Extracting oil or fumes is no issue for the SW-RAF10000’s powerful potential. Solar Whiz’s commercial exhaust fans have a variety of uses in the workplace, no matter your industry.

Solar Whiz Commercial has been used to extract noxious fumes from refuelling stations in order to prevent gas build-up. It has also been used to ventilate moisture and steam from swimming centres and spas, helping prevent algae or mould build-up.

Cutting Costs on your Energy Bills with Solar Whiz Commercial

The Department of Industry & Science backed the publishing of The 20 Step Guide to Cutting Energy Bills in Your Business in early 2015. Inamongst the many cost-saving tips provided in the guide was a couple of points regarding roof ventilation:

“Many business have used whirlybirds over the years, but some companies are now replacing them with solar-powered roof-cavity ventilators.”

“Solar-powered roof-cavity ventilators have proven to be very effective in removing heat from enclosed roof spaces. The small solar panel drives the fan motor, which gives it a significant performance boost over the whirlybirds.”
