How EPIC Designs and Builds Top Quality HVLS Fans

By | February 5, 2022

We’ve spent countless hours engineering our HVLS fans before putting them out on the market. We spent a lot of time on research & development to ensure we put the best designed fan possible into the market. We could easily sit back and just focus on selling now, but we’re not that kind of company. We’re continually striving for better – rigorously researching and testing both new technology to enhance our fans and real-world improvements to installation and maintenance.


USA-Born & Bred

When we set out to design our fan blades, we teamed up with the University of Texas Aerospace Engineering Department. There we worked with them to develop an efficient five-blade design (an odd number of blades produce less turbulence than an even number of blades) and our signature downturned winglets modeled on helicopter blade theory.

And now from our facility in Carrollton, Texas (right outside Dallas), we design, engineer, test, assemble AND ship our Apex, Colossus, Brevis and Summit fans. Doing all of this in one central place has a number of advantages:

  • We can prototype and test new products and enhancements in our R&D lab.
  • We’re able to train and oversee our workers in assembling every fan by hand.
  • Our engineers are able to work with the production team to apply product enhancements quickly.
  • We can keep our manufacturing process very lean, with tight inventory and quality control, steady assembly and shipping operations, and a focus on a high level of job safety. In turn, our customers can feel confident they’re paying for the highest level of quality with the least amount of wasted overhead.
