Pac Fire welcomes “Commando” and “Quickee” to the Blowhard range

New Fans from Blowhard - Command and Quickee

Blowhard is an innovative company with a team dedicated to putting the needs of firefighters first. Their core focus is creating solutions that fire services can integrate into their processes to make them more powerful and efficient.

It is this focus that has led to the creation of two new fans – the Commando and the Quickee.

Both new fans utilise positive pressure ventilation (PPV) whereby they remove smoke, heat and other combustion products from a structure during or after a fire. The Blowhard difference is the use of Jet Stream technology rather than the more common “cone” airflow. Jet Stream technology utilises a concentrated, high-pressure “jet stream” dedicated to ventilation which consistently out performs the “cone” model. Basically what this means is you need fewer fans based on “jet stream” technology to ventilate an area – saving valuable space on trucks, time in deployment and money on additional units.

New Fans from Blowhard - Command and Quickee

Weight, shape, size, balance, and carrying options have been major considerations during the design and construction of Commando and Quickee.

Commando gives you the all-in-one power to take on any situation. Pushing the limits of battery technology and fan engineering, BlowHard’s Commando brings unmatched performance with a footprint and weight similar to that of the BH-20. The Commando redefines battery powered PPV with its ability to outperform some petrol driven fans, yet light weight and ergonomic enough to be carried and set up by one person.

The Quickee expands on the technology and benefits introduced in the BH-20. It is engineered to increase performance while taking up less space. BlowHard’s ErgoFold technology has been taken to the next level to create a more powerful, smaller, lighter, more manoeuvrable 508mm fan designed to increase the performance and efficiency of the firefighter.

Both fans incorporate new Blowhard features which include adjustable angle path lighting and battery charge indicators.

Pac Fire is proud to offer Blowhard’s revolutionary ventilation technology throughout Australia and New Zealand. Please contact us for more information or for a detailed quote on the BH-20, Commando or Quickee.

Supercharge your response time

Blowhard Fans and Pac Fire Australia - partners for over 8 years

Pac Fire and Blowhard Fans have a long standing and prosperous relationship spanning more than 8 years.

Blowhard Fans have single handedly revolutionised the way ventilation in emergency situations is approached.

Blowhard’s BH-20 PPV fan has been designed for high pressure to effectively drive ventilation. The high velocity jet stream produced by the BH-20 assists in building pressure to effectively clear smoke from the structure.

Boasting unique design and construction, the BH-20 is lighter, smaller, incredibly durable and more powerful than other fans on the market today.

The soft start motor can be powered with both a mains outlet or Blowhard’s long lasting, Li-Ion battery pack. This feature allows the fan to be set up faster and started instantly – in some instances cutting down response time by up to 6 minutes. Weighing only 27kgs, Blowhards ergonomic design which includes a shoulder strap, allows the fan to be repositioned while still running. It’s compact design allows it to be used in difficult, hard to reach spaces while also saving valuable space on emergency response vehicles.

Blowhard Fans are available throughout Australia and New Zealand from Pac Fire.
