Integrated batteries require less space on the vehicle than replaceable batteries and their charging technology. They also allow for higher power transfer and thus have less power loss at the electrical contact points and allow for better thermal control of the batteries, which has a positive effect on battery life and battery runtime. You can ventilate longer.

Fulfills DIN 14963

BlowHard firefighting ventilators have been tested and comply with the new DIN 14963 standard for portable ventilation equipment.

Quickee – DIN14963-EM-A-1-1
Commando –DIN14963-EM-A-2-1


Battery life is important because the decision should be yours when to stop using it. Blowhard relies on integrated batteries as they promise lossless power transfer, longer runtime and longer life than is possible with replaceable batteries. The integrated technology allows, in addition to a temperature management of the batteries, the IP 67 standard (dustproof & waterproof) and is therefore also ideally suited for tough applications.

Power without control is useless. Even the highest technical values are of no use if it does not arrive and can not be used at the place of operation. The BLOWHARD High-Flow-Jet airflow management system smartly turns the already high performance values of BLOWHARD fans into an unbeatable helper in fire management.

The blowhard fan design allows you to continuously tilt the airflow up to 180 degrees. This freedom allows for a wide range of tactical settings and arrangements at the scene, giving you effective and safe PPV ventilation.

Blowhard devices are designed to be quickly and effectively put into action. In this regard, the weight and volume of the PPV fans play a key role for rescuers. The devices are light enough to be brought to the scene even by a single person.

Blowhard products are built for use in the harshest conditions on site. Despite the lightness of the devices, no compromises are made on the solid construction. The devices are suitable for many years of use in the harshest conditions.

The basis of a good fan is good performance values. Not only the battery, the motor and the electronics used are decisive, but also the flow design of the fan unit, such as the rotor blades and their number, as well as the design of the air grille and much more.

Every second counts at the scene of a fire. Both for the fire scene and for rescuers, as well as for the possible victims. Equipment that supports this rescue must therefore be ready for use quickly. The concentration should be on the operation and the tactics of the operation and not in setting up the equipment. Blowhard ventilators are built in such a way that anyone can set them up quickly at the scene of an emergency, even without explanation. No matter whether professional fire department or volunteer fire department.

Stand in place, start the positive pressure ventilator and give full attention to the scene. The operability of the equipment must not be a mystery. Electronic “gimmicks” are of little use, because the concentration should be on the operation and the operation tactics and not in the operation of the equipment. Even without technical training, the equipment must be easy to operate. Regardless of whether it is a professional fire department or a volunteer fire department.

Blowhard PPV positive pressure ventilators are designed for low operating costs. On the one hand, the units offer very high mechanical quality combined with very long service life even in tough applications. Spare parts availability and corresponding warranty plans further reduce operating costs. Components of the highest quality are installed, such as the most modern and reliable battery technology. So that rescuers do not experience any surprises.

Why Blowhard uses integrated batteries for High Performance Fans

Integrated batteries require less space on the vehicle than replaceable batteries and their charging technology. They also allow for higher power transfer and thus have less power loss at the electrical contact points and allow for better thermal control of the batteries, which has a positive effect on battery life and battery runtime. They can ventilate longer.

In addition, built-in batteries manage to provide better protection against dust, smoke and water, which makes the device more durable and reliable overall. Due to built-in batteries, the device is IP-67 certified and also meets the exact requirements you will encounter on the job site.

  • Replaceable batteries require more space in the vehicle
  • Replaceable batteries take time to replace
  • Replaceable battery terminals have a performance limiting effect
  • Replaceable batteries do not allow thermal control


For example, to achieve a fan output of 8,000 CFM (13,590 m3/h) with a Blowhard Commando for 6 hours you need one battery charge. With a commercially available battery fan with replaceable batteries, you would need to carry at least 8 batteries…

Developed in practice

For more than 10 years, Blowhard has exclusively manufactured PPV products for firefighters that exceed the industry standard. The current revolution is Blowhard’s High-Flow Jet Technology, the PPV fan that works as hard as you do.

Blowhard products are not created exclusively on the drawing board. Thousands of units are in use around the world, providing new knowledge that we apply to our products together with active firefighters. For an even more effective and safer operation.

Built for the highest professional demands and requirements

  • Charging electronics – The built-in charging electronics allow short charging times on the vehicle and optimal care of the battery. This happens automatically when the BLOWHARD fan is connected to a mains socket and completely without additional and space-consuming external chargers.

  • Power Electronics – Integrated power electronics allow for maximum battery life through optimal temperature control, protecting batteries and extending their life.

  • Dual-Power – Blowhard fans can seamlessly switch between battery and mains power without interruption, requiring no replacement batteries and minimal attention during use.

  • Large Battery – Blowhard uses the largest possible batteries to avoid high peak loads and therefore temperature spikes during power output. This extends the life of the integrated batteries.

  • Fan design – Rotor and ventilation grille have been specifically designed for the task at hand. They guarantee maximum build-up of air volume and air pressure with minimum energy consumption.

  • High-Flow Jet – Blowhard airflow management combines the advantages of jet airflow with those of cone airflow. As a result, the units offer the user a range of applications with appropriate reserves.

  • Lightweight construction – The Blowhard device design was developed together with firefighters in the field and features extremely high load capacity combined with low weight and device volume.

  • Quick connectors – Blowhard is easy and quick to use. Powerful pot magnets allow quick attachment of accessories such as water rings or hoses.

  • Ergo-Fold – The airflow of a Blowhard unit can be smoothly and easily adjusted up to 180-degrees to provide a wide working area. This is accomplished in a simple, intuitive manner, even in inaccessible job sites.

  • Wheel set – Wheels and handles should not hinder the operation and should not take up space on the emergency vehicle. The wheel set for the BLOWHARD Commando can be folded away including the handle, thus saving important space for additional equipment.
