Destratification & Comfort

Summer Comfort

In summer, the efficient and continuous air circulation provided by a Gorilla X fan creates a natural evaporative cooling effect for occupants.

It is also designed to eliminate the build up of hot stagnant air in the building by maintaining constant air movement and improving the internal environment.

Winter Destratification

In winter, warm heated air rises to the highest point of an enclosed
area, thereby causing cooler air to reside at floor level.

Traditionally temperatures have been maintained at floor level by continued and prolonged use of heaters, resulting in high energy consumption. A Gorilla X fan increases comfort for occupants and reduces a building’s energy costs. It does this by distributing warm air down from the ceiling towards floor level and therefore maintaining an even temperature throughout.

Fan Selection


To assist with selecting the most effective Gorilla X HVLS fan for your specific application, Fantech have developed an easy to use web based selection tool. Once logged in, simply enter the width, length and height of the area, together with the ambient temperature and desired cooling effect from the fans. The selection tool will provide a number of possible options that list the quantity of fans, fan sizes and suggested spacing.

Gorilla Aviator Controllers

The innovative range of Aviator controllers are designed to manage from one Gorilla X HVLS fan to a large system with multiple fans and sensors. The control system takes advantage of the latest digital technology to ensure it can be tailored to suit the requirements of almost any high ceiling application.

Aviator controllers utilize the Fantech ComLink system (RS485) to connect the controller, Gorilla X HVLS fans and sensors together. This intelligent system provides reliable two-wire communication between devices, significant installation cost savings and a higher level of system monitoring and adjustment. The Fantech ComLink system also provides; reduced and simplified cabling, faster commissioning and simple daisy chain connection.


A controller to suit any size application

Aviator MINI

The Aviator MINI is the ultimate controller for high ceiling applications because of its ability to manage up to 50 Gorilla X HVLS fans. The MINI controls these fans individually or within a maximum of 6 demand control zones. It comes factory pre-configured to suit the requirements of each application and can be connected to a Building Management System.

The Aviator MINI can be connected with up to 20 sensors; temperature, humidity and CO2. The MINI can also connect to a BMS (BACnet or Modbus) or the Aviator PRO for its intuitive graphic interface.

Aviator Touch PRO

The simple to use Aviator Touch PRO features an intuitive graphic interface which makes managing a network of Gorilla X HVLS fans easy. It simplifies installation, and can control up to 10 HVLS fans and be connected to 2 sensors. This flexible controller can be factory pre-configured to operate each fan individually or help drive an energy saving Demand Control Ventilation system.

The Touch PRO is compatible with Temperature, Humidity or CO2 sensors. It features a high definition 4.3” LCD touch screen and a 7 day scheduler that enable set-up of operational periods.

Aviator Touch

The multi-function Aviator Touch is designed to control up to 4 Gorilla X fans individually or in a single group. It can turn each fan on and off,
and alter fan speed, rotation direction and run time.

The Touch features an LCD touch screen display, and a run to end timer.
