"FANZILLA" COOLING SERVICES

image114

WE OWN THE BIGGEST COOLING SYSTEM IN NY

This massive portable cooling fan can be used for a variety of purposes, runs on only 1.5 gallons of gas per hour and is ultra quiet. Unlike any other wind machine, FANZILLA can be set to oscillate at any degree or angle to provide wind for many different uses. The is fan can cool an entire football stadium 20 degrees in 5 minutes! Water emitted from fine nozzles in front of the fan is vaperized to produce a  rapid drop in temperature. A garden hose is all that is needed using  approximately 1/2 gallon of water per minute. Our massive (and super quiet!) fan can also be rented to you for:


  • Evaporative cooling
  • Live Events / Crowd Cooling
  • Weddings
  • Parties
  • TV Programs
  • Special Effect / Wind effect
  • Stadiums and event halls
  • All kinds of productions
  • Any outdoor event at all!


FIRE SAFETY COORDINATOR SERVICES

WHY WE DO IT

Movie sets have long since been a dangerous place to work yet there are an alarming amount of productions that do NOT fire proof their sets as law requires. In March of 2019 one of our brave New York firefighters died on a movie set trying to put out a fire at 773 St. Nicholas Avenue while shooting the film, "Motherless Brooklyn." This is the kind of tragedy that could have been avoided if only they had hired a proper fire safety coordinator as all sets should have. SFXNY is on this forefront of fire safety.

WE ARE THE AUTHORITY ON FIRE SAFETY

This year is the 9th consecutive year SFXNY has been chosen to be the fire safety coordinator for Fox News. We oversee special effects, pyrotechnics and other dangerous and hazardous happenings in and around the FOX NEWS Studio. We have also worked for major companies like Bass Pro, Asn Juan and Home Depot.

SECURE YOUR ENVIRONMENT

Do it right, be safe and follow city code. By hiring SFXNY as your fire safety coordinator you secure the lives and property of your location and save money. The simple truth is, if you fireproof your set it gives people time to live in the case of a fire. Call or click today for a free consultation!
