New Isis Series Sends Big Ass Fans Outdoors
Big Ass Fans, the trendsetting designer of large-diameter, low-speed fans, continues to set the pace for innovative air movement solutions with its introduction of the Isis outdoor series. The new outdoor rated series features the ceiling-mounted Isis for covered areas and Isis-on-a-Stick for ceiling-less spaces.
Inspired by the original ceiling-mounted Isis, the outdoor series gives residential customers the same sturdy components and aerodynamic principles as other Big Ass Fans, but in a package designed to deliver year-round, outdoor breezes. This is the first time that customers can enjoy Big Ass Fans technology with an unobtrusive, all weather design that is impervious to the wet outdoors.
The outdoor series of Isis, like its indoor predecessor, is engineered, precision-balanced and hand built with aircraft-grade aluminum and industrial components. Its sweeping airfoil blades, shaped like aircraft wings, revolve slowly delivering breezy comfort while deflecting airborne insects. The ceiling-mounted Isis is available in diameters of eight, nine and 10 feet and weighs less than 100 pounds. Isis-on-a-Stick incorporates a powder coated 10 foot steel pole and mounting structure while the patented winglet and airfoil design spans 10 feet in diameter. Both members of the new outdoor series are UL listed for use in wet locations and can extend the availability of patios and outdoor spaces on even the hottest days.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
