Air movement is vital when in a controlled growing environment. The RAM 450mm Heavy Duty Wall Fan (18) – 3 Speed helps increase the air flow within the grow room without taking up any space, due to its sturdy wall mountable design. The fan is equipped with an oscillating function, allowing the fan to distribute large amounts of air consistently through the grow room, with the strong metal blades giving increased reliability.
How the RAM Heavy-Duty Wall Fan Works
This is the Rolls Royce of wall fans! As soon as you handle it, you realise that it’s been manufactured to a much higher standard than 99% of the competition. The motor looks and feels like it could power a small car! At 100w, it’s extremely powerful while remaining nice and quiet. Because the framework is so well made, you don’t get the rattling noises that can be a problem with cheaper fans. It features three speeds, which you can adjust between with a dial, and a pull-chord switch system for the oscillation feature.
How to Use the RAM Heavy-Duty Wall Fan
Adjust the speed of the wall fan by turning the central dial or pulling the pull switch cord on the right-hand side and set the oscillation movement via the pull switch cord on the left. Plug the fan in and switch it on.
Note: Never connect an air circulation fan to a fan speed controller. Only use the fans own speed switches to control the fan speed. If an air circulation fan is connected to a fan speed controller designed for in-line duct fans, then it will burn out and possibly start a fire.

Your grow room needs fans all year round, no matter what the temperatures are like outside – they are always beneficial. They help with a variety of different problems that might otherwise arise and don’t just work to cool a room down. Ways they can help include:
- To Circulate the Air In Your Grow Room
- To Remove Excess Heat & Hot Spots
- To Control Humidity
- To Prevent Pests and Diseases
- To Control CO2
- To Circulate the Air In Your Grow Room
Outside, plants are going to encounter wind at some point. However, the wind never blows in the same direction for very long, and so you want to avoid having a static fan blowing. Oscillating fans and others that have movement are ideal for creating a more natural air circulation. You can place two fans in opposite corners to create a circulating vacuum of air.
To Remove Excess Heat & Hot Spots
Your grow room can easily get too warm depending on the conditions outside and within the area, you are growing. Grow lights emit heat, and whilst it may not feel like much to you, a slight increase in temperature can really affect your plants.
Some grow lights emit more heat than others but even with lights known to run cooler such as air-cooled lighting and LEDs, it is still wise to have fans blowing. They will help to keep the general temperatures lower and help with air exchange.
To Control Humidity
Another factor that can create problems in a grow room is humidity. Plants release water vapour throughout the day and this increases the humidity. If this level isn’t controlled, the growing conditions will decline.
A good ventilation system will help to wick away some of the water released during transpiration. This allows your plants to absorb more water and pull up nutrients through their root systems, which in effect helps with boosting growth.
To Prevent Pests and Diseases
Good air circulation will help to prevent pests and diseases taking hold. Stagnant and humid conditions are preferred of mould, powdery mildew, spider mites and fungus gnats. And we don’t want any of those to get in!
A steady breeze thanks to a few fans also makes it harder for the pests to establish themselves on the plants.
To Control CO2
Plants need outside air for one very basic reason: CO2. This is absorbed naturally throughout the day as part of a plant’s nutrient cycle. With a sealed grow tent set-up, the level of CO2 will gradually decrease, and this will limit growth.
Ventilation brings in the fresh air and fresh CO2 from outside whilst removing the old air from your grow room.
“We have bought two of these fans they are brilliant well worth the money would strongly recommend this product to everyone.”
“Excellent purchase very pleased with this wall mounted fan & the remote is an added feature.”
“Amazon delivery was quicker than expected during this Corona outbreak. The fan is of sturdy construction. The air flow is good for such a small unit. The difference between low and high settings is not as much as you may expect though this is down to there being a large flow even at the low setting. Low vibration indicates a well balanced setup and I see no downsides at all to this unit. If this is a suitable fan choice for your needs and not expected to out perform it’s design limits you will be as delighted as I am.”
