FAQ’s ABOUT ELECTRIC FROST FANS
What is the coverage per fan?
Our frost fans offer a coverage area of 7 to 9 hectares per fan.
HOW MANY FANS DO I NEED & WHERE SHOULD I PLACE THEM?
We offer a free frost risk analysis which includes mapping out the positions of each fan and the related coverage.
What power sources may be used to drive the frost fans?
The fans may be driven via 3-phase power from the grid, or via a generator.
To what extent is the surrounding environment impacted by the erection of the fans?
Our fans have a hydraulic pivoting mast which simplifies installation and minimises the impact on the surrounding environment. Heavy-lifting equipment is not required.
What crops am I able to protect?
Our fans are currently being used to protect grapes, wine grapes, avocados, various citrus (oranges, lemons, tangerines), pomegranates, gooseberries and pecan nuts, but may be more broadly applied.
How are the fans controlled?
Our RF-based control system links each fan to a Homebase via a Fan Control Unit. Up to 20 fans may be linked to a single Homebase.
How will I monitor my fans?
Our system uses a cloud-based monitoring system which is accessible from any internet enabled device. All key functions are shown on a dashboard and data is available in real time. Historical data may also be exported.
What is the warranty period?
We offer a 2-year mechanical warranty and a 1-year warranty on electrical components.

We currently have agents in Chile (South America), New Zealand, Australia, Canada and USA; but will do our best to accommodate enquiries from any country or region.
