Our 18" basket fan is designed especially for agricultural use. Unlike most fans which are NOT meant for use in barns, this fan has a totally enclosed motor with sealed ball bearings meaning it can be used in wet locations! These fans can even be sprayed down to remove dust and dirt, making them an excellent choice for wash bays and stables.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Many fans sold in farm and home improvement stores are dangerous to use in barns. These include all box fans and most floor type basket fans.  Unless the fans have completely sealed motors, they will NOT be rated for agricultural use.  Be sure to check the instruction manual before purchasing - as many will state on the front page "for residential use only".  This is true for ceiling fans as well (ours are also agriculturally rated).
 
Electrical fires are a leading cause of preventable horse deaths. In 2007, 44 horses were killed in a barn fire caused by a fairly new box fan. There is a website dedicated to fire safety in barns - check out their stories on how the wrong fans can be a deadly cost-cutting measure! Don't become a statistic...
