Air Handlers

AVON custom manufacture a wide range of air handlers to any specification.

For indoor and outdoor installation, air flows horizontal, upflow, down flow, wall mounted, and to various noise level specifications.

AVON Air Handlers are usually supplied fully pre-wired, with “tempering” elements, up to and including main isolator and remote control panel, however we also offer air handlers built to the minimum “bare terminals only” stage — enquire for details.

We can prepare a detailed quotation to your specification – our basic range includes the following:

  • SINGLE FAN (double inlet type) – cabinet is tall and narrow — lowest cost
  • FAN DECK FAN – wide, flat, low profile for low ceiling heights
  • SPECIAL Air Handlers — including low noise levels
  • EXHAUST AIR HANDLERS (with matching fans, AVON Air Handlers and Exhaust Fans make for an easy to control, ultra quiet “fresh / recirc” heating / ventilation installation).

General Air Handler Information

Both Indoor and Outdoor models are normally supplied for horizontal air flows.

Cabinets are usually manufactured from fabricated plain galvanised steel. Painting is optional, and not included unless specified.  Stainless Steel available on request.

Mountings (for the cabinet) may be specified. Because the fans we use are mostly of a type that have very effective resilient rubber mounts on the fan motor and fan drive, there is usually no need for the cabinet to be resiliently mounted. However we suggest that you check with our factory when specifying.
