Tunnel & Metro

Since the 1970s WITT has supplied fans for national and international tunnels, metro and wind tunnel projects. This includes very large axial fans for ventilation control centres and wind tunnels as well as jet fans for longitudinal ventilation. WITT was one of the first fan manufacturers which was able to offer smoke extraction axial fans up to 700°C,1h.


The complete product range of us is certified for temperature classes F400, F300 and F200 according to EN12101-3. The development of the Banana Jet ® at the end of the 1990s has led to a small revolution in the longitudinal ventilation, as huge cost savings can be achieved by the use of these jet fans.


It is particularly noteworthy that all fans "full size" are measured at our test facility: All jet fans (30-3000N) are measured on test benches according to ISO 13350, axial and centrifugal fans (up to 1.000.000m ³ / h and 20.000Pa) according to ISO 5801. The test benches were designed partly together with the University of Karlsruhe and are of course AMCA certified.
