Grid Ceiling Solutions

LA-248 | DA-248

Our commercial/industrial flush mount ceiling fan is designed to be dropped into a traditional grid or suspended ceiling. The fan is completely self-contained (no duct attachments) and fits into standard 2×2 ceiling grid systems. 

Our lay-in fans are particularly effective for vestibule entrances. The fans act as a barrier to rain and snow in colder climates, keeping floors warm and dry, and aiding accident prevention. The fans are also a barrier in humid climates, reducing excess air loss as the humidity meets air conditioning.

Our standard lay-in fan, the LA-248, is a high performance destratification fan that drops right in ceiling grids. 
Our “Direct Air” fan, the DA-248 (left), comes ready to be connected to duct work. The universal DA-248 has been used successfully for open-coffin, multi-deck aisles, and in augmenting starving long runs to bring air distribution to specific areas.
