Additional Product Information
Computers, cabinets and other types of electronic equipment need to be able to keep their internal temperatures down. Cooling fans are used to achieve this and fan guards are an essential component. Fan guards will block foreign objects from accidentally coming in contact with the fan. Sheetmetal guards often have flattened rings that block a great deal of airflow, generating higher amounts of noise, as well as causing other problems. The rounded rings of a wire form fan guard permit more air to pass by directly, bringing down the noise level because less air is hitting the guard. Using a wire form fan guard also keeps heat from collecting inside too quickly. Overheating can lead to serious problems for electronic devices. Due to its 95% efficiency, the GardTec SC130W1 keeps the air flowing out at the best possible levels.
Wire form fan guards are only made to fit fans of a corresponding size. Advantages to using cooling fan guards include less energy used by the fan, and a longer lifespan for the fan. Cooling fan guards have an influence over other aspects of fan performance as well, such as airflow and the collection of dirt. It is strongly urged that a cooling fan always be used with a fan guard. Please note that before a new cooling fan system is installed, the unit should be turned off and unplugged.
