High temperature fans and blowers

Garden CityTM fans and blowers: Precise air management for the world's toughest applications

​Howden's Garden City range of high temperature fans and high temperature blowers have been refined over a period of 130 years, and are established as the standard by which other fans are measured. The Garden City products are engineered for the world’s most extreme heat, corrosive, and demanding operating environments. The diverse range of fans and blowers are designed to excel in extreme temperatures up to 2000°F.

We have a large selection of high temperature Garden City fans and can, in most cases, match a customers requirements from our existing product base. On the occasions where an existing product is not suitable, we have a team of skilled engineers who will custom design a fan to meet the exact required specifications.

Howden Garden City fans were originally designed and maufactured by Garden City Fans (GCF), a company that was formed in 1879. Garden City Fans became part of the Fläkt Woods Group, and then was purchased by Howden in 2013.
