Lightweight and impact-resistant, Sidekick offers optimum maneuverability with two 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.Superior Performance Starts with Superior Design
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.
Quiet by Design
- 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
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
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.Seeing is Believing
