RSA UPGRADES CONTINUE
In the Summer a 24 foot, 6 blade, Macro-Air, high volume fan was installed at RSA to substantially enhance air flow in the facility. Macro-Air is the recognized leader in HVLS fan technology. The fan has provided continuous air movement throughout the building creating a comfortable “breeze” effect, and reducing overall temperatures by 7-8 degrees at maximum speeds. When it gets cold it will facilitate keeping the warmer air on the floor surface.
Last week we removed all 16 interior light fixtures and replaced them with state of the art LED lighting, which has provided a remarkable improvement in both the amount of light provided, and the uniformity of coverage. The LED lighting will also reduce the temperature inside the facility in the Summer peak periods by 6-8 degrees. We are also changing out the exterior light fixtures.
There are additional upgrades to come in 2017. We are going to continue to make RSA an even better facility to utilize to maximize your skills.
