why frost fans?

Any delay can be costly.

It only takes sending out the helicopters too late, not getting the candles lit in time, or getting an unexpected frost to have your fruit ruined.

With an industry-leading coverage area, a FrostBoss® fan is the reliable, efficient & quiet way to keep your crops in top shape & get a better night's sleep during a frost.

Save time

When you're not out having to prepare each time it turns cold, you've got more time for things that matter.

Reduce costs

You won't need as many hands to light candles or have to send up a helicopter every time there's a frost.

Cut noise

No chopper flying overhead, or fans that sound like one. FrostBoss® fans hum gently as they circulate the air.

Be fuel efficient

FrostBoss® fans convert more fuel into useful wind, and less into turbulence & noise, keeping costs & emissions down.

Plant more

Frost fans help make more land viable for planting, so you'll have more space to grow your business.

Increase yield

Better protection means less wastage and more opportunity to increase yield and profits.

Stay mobile

The latest info at your fingertips.

Our fans have built-in FrostSmart™ Monitoring to let you see what's going on & can send alarms by text message. (Subscription applies)

fans vs other protection

How does a fan protect your crop?

The earth absorbs heat from the sun during the day, and releases it into the colder atmosphere at night. Just before dawn, the heat loss is the greatest, and usually when most frost damage happens.

When the heat is released, it creates a layer of warmer air, about 10-50 metres above the ground. FrostBoss® Frost Fans pull this warmer air down to ground level, and then blow it into the orchard or vineyard.

To protect the crop from the most amount of damage, the air needs to reach the greatest distance possible and the fan needs to blow as much strong, uniform wind as possible.

They automatically turn on before a frost (usually 0.5 to 1.5°C above freezing) and can be set to ideally turn off late, giving far greater protection than traditional methods.

In severe conditions, using orchard heaters in conjunction with frost fans increases how much warmer air can be pulled down and blown across the crop.

“The investment in FrostBoss® Frost Fans was seen as excellent value compared to the estimated $24 million lost to frost in the previous year.

With a total of 176  frost fan machines, the growers are given peace of mind knowing that  frost mitigation is in place across the groves.”

“They’ve been outstanding with the area they cover, ease of access to the motor and large 490 litre capacity fuel tanks.

We also had New Zealand Frost Fans upgrade the old alloy blades on our Amarillo machines with the FrostBoss® C39 composite blades (3 blade system) and these have proven to be quieter and more efficient.”

“Our customers rely on us for supply and to do what we can to protect hard-won shelf space. In fact, one of our customers helped us buy two of the fans.

Frost fans have seen our average yield increase by 2 tonnes per hectare. We prefer fans over water irrigation, which can jeopardise quality if you’re watering for frost when the vines don’t need it."
