Flex-A-Lite Introduces Revolutionary Flex-Wave Electric Fan

New from Flex-A-Lite – the Flex-Wave electric fan. This fan has greater airflow, is more efficient, and is quieter than traditional S-blade and straight-blade designs. See more details below.

Official Release:

The revolutionary, patent-pending Flex-Wave electric fan from Flex-A-Lite® has greater airflow, is more efficient and is quieter than traditional S-blade and straight-blade designs. The Flex-Wave fan moves up to 20 percent more airflow than Flex-A-Lite Trimline fans, and up to 25 percent more airflow than the comparable electric fans from the competitors!

Using advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics software, Flex-A-Lite engineers developed a blade consisting of an aerodynamic profile flowing through a sine-wave path. The design was then prototyped and tested in a wind tunnel to verify increased airflow and improved efficiency.

Features:

  • The sine-wave design creates leading edges that cut through the air first; this starts movement in the air around the blade with greater efficiency
  • The wave surface of the blades creates channels for the air to move along, producing more airflow and reducing energy losses
  • The wave surface forms a winglet at the tip of the blade, further increasing efficiency by reducing air vortices
  • The trailing edge of the fan blade also has variations, which reduces wind noise
