Industrial fans are by their very nature, heavy, voluminous and largely made of steel. This means that shipping costs, either to the OEMs, such as oven manufacturers, who will fit them to their machines or to end users like the steel industry, can add enormously to the quoted cost. Additionally, shipping globally can add substantially to the price because of international tariff barriers. Fans shipped into the USA for example, attract a 27% tariff. USA built fans avoid this penalty completely.Read More »

René Magritte, born 1898 – died 1967 was a Belgian surrealist artist.
From 1916 to 1918, he studied at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, but found the instruction uninspiring. His early work was influenced by Futurism and by the figurative Cubism of Metzinger. From December 1920 until September 1921, Magritte served in the Belgian infantry in the Flemish town of Beverlo near Leopoldsburg. In 1922, he married Georgette Berger, whom he had first met as a child in 1913 and until 1923, he worked as a draughtsman in a wallpaper factory painting cabbage roses. He was a poster and advertisement designer until 1926, when a contract with Galerie 'Le Centaure' in Brussels made it possible for him to paint full-time.
Magritte described his paintings saying “my paintings are visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and indeed, when one sees one of my paintings, one asks oneself this simple question, ‘What does that mean?’. It does not mean anything because mystery means nothing, it is unknowable.”
