Don’t despair – below, we list a range of Quiet Mark Certified Fans to keep you cool and focused on the match. Game on!
MeacoFan 360 Personal Air Circulator
The new MeacoFan 360 Personal Air Circulator, the smallest in the multi-award winning MeacoFan range, offers a compact version for use in the home, office or anywhere where a near silent, low energy cooling fan would be useful.
The 360 is particularly good for bedroom cooling because it is small enough to fit on a bedside table, or even on a windowsill. If you don’t want to wake up cold in the middle of the night, use the Off Timer and the fan will turn off after a set time to ensure you don’t wake up feeling too cold.
Meaco have used DC technology before in the multi-award winning MeacoFan 1056 fan so they know how good and reliable the technology is. The three major benefits are: low noise level, low running costs and a longer lifespan.
