The Most Advanced Barrel Fan Ever Created

Built to deliver mobile comfort to virtually any space, Sidekick is your facility’s best choice for immediate airflow on the go. Its six-blade design and permanent-magnet motor move more air than any barrel fan on the market with class-leading energy efficiency and the quietest sound level.

Lightweight and impact-resistant, Sidekick offers optimum maneuverability with four locking swivel casters, a large handle, and convenient 12-foot power cord. At 4 feet wide, Sidekick is sized just right for the power you need and easy to store when not in use.

More Airflow, Less Energy

Sidekick’s permanent-magnet motor moves more air at nearly double the efficiency of its closest competitor. With a magnetron core, it also runs cooler than induction or belt-driven motors, ensuring a long life of peak performance.

  • Smaller, lighter, and more powerful than any other fan motor in its class
  • Brushless DC motor design further reduces friction and energy loss
  • 100% passive cooling keeps operating temperature low and efficiency high

Quiet By Design

Sidekick’s smooth, quiet operation is no accident. We engineered the fan with a vented shroud to reduce noise, and its six-blade design provides consistent airflow with none of the choppy sound common to three-bladed fans.

Built Like No Other

Features such as a patented airfoil system, variable speed direct-drive motor, and impact-resistant frame are what set Sidekick apart from the barrel fans of yesteryear.
  • Sleek, durable reinforced nylon airfoils
  • Fully adjustable variable speed control dial
  • OSHA-compliant steel screen and HDPE shroud

Maximum Mobility

Versatile? That’s Sidekick’s middle name. Its convenient 4-foot diameter fits easily through standard interior doorways, while its four locking swivel casters and 12-foot power cord make cooling airflow quick and convenient anywhere in your space.
