I've owned this fan for a few years now and finally got around to making a video of it. It's an ILGJET box fan that was formerly mounted over the doors of a supermarket up north. It was set up with this floor stand when I bought it, which is more practical for me.


I saw fans like this one over the doors of our local Mayfair Market (now a Pavilions), the Baskin Robbins ice cream stores, at my Junior High and High schools as well as in college.

There were also models made for the home, such as the ILG Rollaire and Windowaire models. These were high end fans when they were made.


Enjoy the video -

Duane, that's an awesome ILG! Thanks for sharing it. :up:


I've always found it interesting how the ILG box fans and Rollaires move air towards what would normally be the rear of the fan.

Thanks Dan! And yeah, these are made differently compared to other box fans. This thing is also quite heavy - I'd say close to 30 lbs!

I cleaned it up prior to the video - it had enough hair from my German Shepherd to make another German Shepherd! The entire back of the fan was coated.
