Experience what it’s like to be in a hurricane in the “Universe” Adventure Park in Nordborg Denmark with the all-rounder MAXventowlet, the biomimetic high-tech fan from ZIEHL-ABEG

With wind speeds of 70 to 165 km/h, in other words even greater than those of a real-life, category two hurricane, you’ll face winds blowing at storm force in the “BeattheStorm.com” wind tunnel at the high-tech attraction created by the founder Ingus Augstkalns.

The spectacular and very educational encounter that visitors can experience with a realistically simulated hurricane here in the Adventure Park at the “BeattheStorm.com” attraction, has only been made possible thanks, amongst other things, to the use of the MAXventowlet high-performance fan from ZIEHL-ABEGG.

Patented circulating wind tunnel technology for a unique show of storm-force dimensions with the help of the MAXventowlet fa

There is a great demand for these impressive “BeattheStorm.com” modular boxes which are offered as indoor and outdoor versions worldwide by Storm Adventures Ltd. An increasing number of municipalities, cities or event companies, etc., want to offer their citizens and their audiences this fun-based scientific attraction.

This is a sophisticated, intelligent system, developed and set up by the inventor and founder of this fantastic wind tunnel, Ingus Augstkalns. The technical operation for the scenic hurricane experience recreated in a wind tunnel is based on the 1.40 metre diameter MAXventowlet biomimetic axial fan from ZIEHL-ABEGG which creates a powerful movement of air, at the required strength level, with horizontal circulation.

Fan for delivering a reliable movement of air in the wind tunnel

Thanks to the highly efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly performance, at low operating costs, the low noise emissions also provide an enjoyable and fantastic experience. MAXventowlet is unlike any other in possessing these technical capabilities for such extraordinary applications.
